  • About DeLaneau

    Ever since it was founded in 1949 in Bienne, Switzerland, DeLaneau has been developing undisputed expertise in watchmaking and jewellery arts and crafts, creating watches for an exclusive clientele.

    In 1997, in order to be as close as possible to its craftsmen – talented jewel setters, engravers, goldsmiths, watchmakers and jewellers – the company decided to set up in the heart of the historic district in Geneva.

    One of the special characteristics of the DeLaneau brand is its perfect command of Grand Feu enamelling, to which it probably lends more importance than any other watchmaking firm in existence.

    As well as sublimating its watches with the most superb enamelling possible, DeLaneau prides itself on having highly talented engravers working hand in hand with its enamellers to create the exquisite designs that have forged its reputation. The final touch often takes the firm of precious stones being added, a technique that has been used by DeLaneau for decades to give its timepieces added sparkle.

    These remarkable works of art and craftsmanship also feature mechanical movements, elegant complications and original fine jewellery creations.

  • DeLaneau's philosophy

    For DeLaneau, appreciating a luxury item means having the ability to properly assess quality of workmanship, artisanal talent – and its exclusive nature. At DeLaneau, these criteria occupy a fundamental position in the creation of every watch; each model made is designed to be completely faithful to this philosophy.

    Knowhow and open-mindedness enable DeLaneau to make the most incredible aesthetic dreams come true in a timepiece. The Firm offers bespoke creations that give its clients the possibility of coming alongside its designers, enamellers and jewel setters to play a leading role in the manufacture of their watches. Given the degree of care taken with its craftsmanship, individual design and quality of finish, each DeLaneau creation is truly unique.
