CLARO CL-888, Swiss-Made Gents Automatic

CLARO Watch was commissioned to supply a new alternative low-cost, Swiss-Made Gents Mechanical Automatic Movement in Switzerland. At the time, the only available branded movement manufacturers catering to this market were ETA in Grenchen and Sellita SA in La Chaux de Fauds.

CLARO Watch SA has been operating in Hong Kong and Greater China for over half a century and it has developed a solid network of relationships within the region. In consideration of this, CLARO made a strategic decision to re-engineer an existing calibre that was readily available from the market. After carefully evaluating a number of options, CLARO selected a traditional, long-established calibre from the Far East that was originally developed by a Swiss group.

Starting with raw parts, CLARO Watch SA completely re-worked, cleaned, measured, set and tested each part before adding our 100% Swiss-made content. The full assembly was completed, tested and calibrated in CLARO’s wholly-owned factory in Bellinzona, Switzerland.

Our CL-888 was being used by twenty different Swiss and international brands. In 2008, over 100,000 pieces were produced and sold.

In 2009, CLARO Watch halted the production CL-888 and the von Burg family decided to develop a new 100% Swiss Made Calibre, the VB9832.
