It has been a rewarding twelve years! Founded in 2005 by Audemars Piguet, Girard-Perregaux and the Richemont Group, in little more than a decade the FHH has established itself as a respected and legitimate body for the promotion and safeguard of Fine Watchmaking around the world, through training, information and the organisation of events. To support these activities, the Foundation has succeeded in bringing together a majority of the leading names in both traditional and contemporary watchmaking. This prestigious circle now grows with the arrival of twelve brands, bringing the number of partners to 41 in total.
Armin Strom, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud, DeWitt, Grönefeld, Hautlence, Kari Voutilainen, Laurent Ferrier, Ressence, Romain Gauthier, RJ-Romain Jerome, Speake-Marin and Urwerk now join the companies that actively support the Foundation. “We are delighted to be able to count on the support of this new generation of creators, all representative of contemporary watchmaking,” declared Fabienne Lupo, Chairwoman and Managing Director of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. “Without its partners’ help, the FHH could never have lived up to its ambitions and so single-heartedly fulfilled its mission to promote the skills and values of Fine Watchmaking. These new partnerships reinforce the Foundation’s legitimate position and enable us to continue further in the directions we have taken over the past twelve years.”
Composed of the foremost names in traditional horology, artisan-creators and the vanguard of new watchmaking, the FHH’s partners illustrate every facet of this unique field. In all their diversity, they contribute to its history, sustain its expertise and instil creativity. These values are united within the FHH which, having “circled the dial” once, is more determined than ever to take the excellence of Fine Watchmaking into the world.
