INDUSTRY Picture: Picture: Picture: Picture: PRECISION TURNING WATCHMAKING SPECIAL-PURPOSE PRODUCTS MACHINE TOOLS THE JURA TECHNOLOGY CLUSTER People who have experienced the swiss Jura understand its unique fascination. Nowadays, the word “Jura” is often used to refer to the entire region surrounding the Jura mountain chain. Once a peripheral region, over the centuries it has cultivated a tradition of craftsmanship. Thus it is no surprise that many leading suppliers of precision technologies and products from Switzerland make their home there today. Many of them turn to MOTOREX for their lubricant needs. Because of the Jura’s relative isolation, the farmers who lived there were accustomed to doing everything themselves – making their own weapons, doing their own plumbing and locksmith work, etc. In this way they accumulated a wealth of technical knowledge and practical skill. As a result, the watchmaking industry in particular gradually took shape in the area around Neuchâtel in the 17th century. The inhabitants of the region may not have invented the art of watchmaking, but it certainly found fertile soil there. In particular, two groups of craftsmen contributed to its development: the locksmiths and the goldsmiths. Over time they increasingly not only repaired and upgraded clocks and watches, but also built their own.
