Laboratory of Advanced Technology

New challenges? Ground-breaking and bold projects to accomplish?

Take advantage of state of the art equipment and exceptional expertise to reinforce innovation.

We particularly appreciate the multidisciplinary and responsive nature of the scientific teams. The variety of the state-of-the-art equipment, as well as the geographical proximity, are also an undeniable asset for the rapid progress of the project.

The combination of our watchmaking know-how and the high-level academic competencies of the LTA have enabled us to validate our prototype and envisage mass production as of 2016.

Nicolas Wiederrecht, Agenhor

The advice and proposals provided by the LTA made it possible to develop a convincing prototype. We really appreciated their desire to keep things moving forward, to meet the technical challenges of the project, as well as their availability, and all without cumbersome bureaucracy.
