MNP commits to La Passerelle

On 2023-02-27

To enable the socio-professional integration of people with disabilities, MNP is committed to La Passerelle. This centre is managed by an association located in Annecy-Le-Vieux (74-France). 

Since last year, we have been welcoming trainees from watchmaking studies. 

Our objective is to help them discover the workings of a company by having them a few weeks in our workshops. 




La Passerelle in figures:

This centre has been open since 2011 with an average of 28 trainees per year and 2 watchmaking trainers. 


The trainees discover the watchmaker's trade through different missions: quality and quantity controls, assembly, adjustments, waterproof tests.

2022 Review!

On 2023-01-17

It is time for us to recap what happened during the past year.

And what a year!

First, we welcomed through the year new members to reinforce our nice team in different sectors: in the workshops, in logistics and in marketing. Several interns from different schools came to discover the services we offer in our manufacture.

Then, after years spent in our workshops in Sancey (a small town in the Franche-Comté region of France), all the team moved to Pierrefontaine-les-Varans (another small town of the same region) in June 2022.

This change also gave us the idea to rethink our visual identity. So you discovered in November our new logo.

In terms of conception, we had the chance to accompany three new watch projects in their development. We realized the watches, their technical plans and 3D prototypes.

Thanks to our customers, our company grows. We noticed a raise of 60% of our activity in 2022 compared to 2021.

And new amazing projects are coming in 2023 ⌚️

MNP commits to GRETA formation centre

On 2022-11-22

For some years now, we have been working with a training centre called GRETA-CFA du Haut-Doubs, in our region. 

What is it exactly?

The GRETA is a centre that welcomes hundreds of trainees per year in several sectors, such as watchmaking. 

The GRETA of Haut-Doubs in figures: 

It is 3 watchmaking training programs in groups per year with 3 trainers, between 30 and 40 trainees per year and a success rate of 95%.

Logo 2020 greta haut doubs sans marianne

Working with a training centre such as GRETA gives future watchmakers the opportunity to discover how a company works. They also discover the different tasks that are accomplished in a real workshop. 

At MNP, the interns we welcome work on several aspects of the job: assembly of components, water-resistance tests, movement controls and settings, quality controls, after sales service.

Our missions 10/12

On 2022-10-12


Let’s talk about 3D printing!

For a few years now, our workshops have been using the stereolithography 3D printing system. 

But what does it mean? This printer works with a laser that transforms the liquid resin into hardened plastic using the principle of photopolymerisation.

This technology allows us to print all kinds of watch parts: cases, dials, crowns… and to try them on, in order to confirm their sizes.

This use of 3D printing helps our customers to have a first overview of their product, before confirming the launch of production. 


Our missions 9/12

On 2022-09-28


Every watch project starts with the preparation of specifications based on your wishes and needs. We can then start the industrial design of your product with the technical drawings and production plans

Our missions 8/12

On 2022-09-28


Packing, printing of dispatch notes: we manage all product shipments to the brand or to the final customer.

We mostly work with DHL, but we are also flexible and we can choose the company of your choice.

Our missions 7/12

On 2022-09-07


There are three main stages in our supply chain: 

Stock management

Order preparation

Shipment to the final customer


In our workshops, we prepare all the watches that have been ordered by the final customer or by the brand.

Depending on the brand's needs, we establish a standard process and follow the same procedure for each watch: we add accessories, warranty papers, goodies, etc.

Our missions 6/12

On 2022-09-07


We offer our customers the possibility to manage their stock.

As soon as we receive the components, we count and check them before they are registered in our stock.

They are then removed from stock for assembly. Finally, when this stage is complete, all the watches are back in stock, ready to be shipped.

Our organisation stays the same for all our customers.

Our missions 5/12

On 2022-08-18


In order to offer our customers the best quality of service, every watch we assemble must be perfect.

Some watches need to be adjusted in case of dust between the dial and the glass or because of scratches.

When a problem has been detected during quality control, our watchmakers take back the pieces and adjust them.

Our missions 4/12

On 2022-08-18


The water resistance of a watch we wear every day is a crucial aspect of a product.

To avoid water drops inside your watch, they are all checked, one by one, in the water-resistance testing machine.

This test allows us to ensure a degree of water resistance up to 20 ATM (200 meters).

All watches that are not validated after the first test are disassembled and reassembled until we get a fully waterproof watch.

Our missions 3/12

On 2022-08-18


After the assembly of all watches, they are checked and tested again.

Our watchmakers make sure that the watch will be fully functional: time and date setting, transition between two months....

If one of these aspects is not validated during the first check, the watch is then adjusted until it is fully operational.

In our workshops, our watchmakers are working on their main mission: the assembly of watches for our customers.

After careful controls, all the components are assembled by hand.

The backs are closed thanks to a press, which allows us to guarantee the water-resistance.

A total of three different controls punctuate the watch's journey through our workshops ⌚

As soon as they arrive, all the components are counted and checked.

After assembly, the watches are inspected again and finally, before they are stored in our stock, a final check is carried out.

This allows us to ensure that our customers receive the best quality of service.
