Jean Singer & Cie SA is an independent manufacturer of premium dials for the major Swiss watch brands. The highest standards and a culture of excellence are the hallmarks of this family-run business, which is dedicated to making products of outstanding quality.

The company has been based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland since it was founded in 1919. Current owner, Joris Engisch, made the decision to relocate to Boudry, in the canton of Neûchatel into a state-of-the-art building that reflects the know-how and expertise of the company’s 350 expertly trained employees.

•     The new factory is fitted with SageGlass smart windows that tint and clear automatically thanks to the SageGlass Symphony control system.

•     The company opted for SageGlass Harmony, the only smart glass that can tint on a gradient, providing precise glare control with a modern aesthetic. This allows employees to perform highly focused work without worrying about glare from the sun and still be able to enjoy the views outside.

•     SageGlass smart glass adapts to weather conditions throughout the day, reducing the need for artificial light, heating and air conditioning, thus helping to lower the building's energy demand.
