Iris Alt: combining femininity and ecological awareness
It is clear that on the current market, the options for so-called "feminine" watches remain quite limited. A designer with a passion for jewelry watches intends to change this, while favoring the most eco-responsible design possible.
Responsible production of 100% recycled and recyclable materials
Panatere, a Swiss raw materials processing company, recognized in the watchmaking and medical industries, is the first player in its sector to offer sustainable raw materials.
Opposition delays the installation of the first industrial solar oven in La Chaux-de-Fonds
Panatere was supposed to start up the first industrial solar furnace for the production of recycled steel in La Chaux-de-Fonds on Tuesday 27 September. Opposition has delayed the launch of this project, but does not affect the motivation of the founder of the company based in the Jura.
Panatere at the origin of the first solar furnace for metal processing
The Saignelégier company Panatere, a pioneer in the transformation of 100% recycled and recyclable raw materials recognized in the watchmaking and medical worlds, is the originator of the first concentrated solar furnace for the treatment of metals for microtechnology. A factory incorporating this technology will soon be built in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
We have gone from watchmaking subcontractors to Jura alchemists.
Starting from a desire to improve the quality of its raw material, the Jura family SME Panatere has changed in size. From watch industry subcontractor to international reference for solar oven technologies, the story of a metamorphosis.
Musings: Deciphering Sustainability
Amidst the watchmaking market continuing to expand in recent years, companies such as Panatere S.A. are gaining recognition and interest for their innovative solutions in providing high quality recycled stainless steel and titanium.
The first 100% recycled and solar-powered stainless steel ingot exhibited at the MIH
Among the new acquisitions of the International Watch Museum, in La Chaux-de-Fonds, there is the first steel ingot recycled in a solar oven, from the Panatere company.
Is solar steel the future of watchmaking?
The solar oven that Panatere is building in the Watch Walley will be capable of producing tons of steel.
Panatère, Leader in the recycling of stainless steel and titanium
1500 tons of 16L stainless steel goes to waste in the manufacturing process of the various parts for watchmaking. Is it really reasonable that this very good quality steel should no longer be reused in the watch industry? The Panatere company in Saignelégier offers a circular economy solution.
Panatere rewarded at the Luxury Innovation Summit.
Organized by the Luxury Venture, this summit attracted participants from more than 12 countries - from startups to established brands and Heritage Houses. Six winners of the Luxury Innovation Awards 2021 were awarded among 71 applications. The Panatere Group won a prize in the “Responsibility & Sustainable Development” category.
The Next Exhibit at a Swiss Watch Museum? Recycled Steel
This month a block of steel is to be added to the collections of the Musée International d’Horlogerie, an institution operated by the watchmaking city of La Chaux-de-Fonds, in what Switzerland’s tourist authorities call Watch Valley. To the untrained eye, the block could pass for a minimalist sculpture, an archaeological find or a polished meteorite mysteriously fallen to Earth.
A solar steel
This stainless steel is 100% produced from metal waste from local components production of watch and medical industries. This short-circuit harvesting process, followed by a rigorous sorting of the scraps then by a recasting of the material thanks to an industrial solar furnace makes it possible to drastically reduce the CO2 emissions necessary for the manufacture of steel.
Panatere: first steel, now recycled titanium.
From early 2022, Panatere will be ready to supply the watch industry with recycled titanium produced using waste recovered from companies in the Swiss Jura, through a system initially set up for recycling steel. The company is also working on an itinerant solar furnace.
Solar oven and short circuits
What if, after the era of influencers, sated with followers and egocentrically dazed by their navels, a new species was born, the “possibilists”? It was Raphaël Broye, owner and director of Panatere, who suggested this neologism to me. A utopian? Rather a visionary...
A treasure was behind my factory!
After a first life as a “disruptive entrepreneur”, Raphaël Broye founded the company Panatere in Saignelégier in 2012, which recycles stainless steel for the Swiss watch industry. Convinced that recycling is a wealth for the industrial future of our region, he will share with us his vision of a “Swiss Made” circular economy and his regional solar foundry project.
The nobility of waste
Today, environmental awareness is pushing for less futile recycling. According to the specifications that the owner and director of Panatere has set himself, we go further than just the watch case. "We worked on each component and the bracelets were part of our overall vision"...
Sustainability, skills for the future
When Raphaël Broye, head of Panatere, drew up his roadmap for the installation of a solar oven in the Jura, when he embarked on the production of recycled steel, he found in Reconvilier a sizeable ally.
Panatere is committed to the production of 100% recycled and recyclable steel

EPHJ 2021 - Exhibitors Innovation Grand Prix
In today's report, we go back to the EPHJ, the high precision trade fair that was held in Geneva a couple of weeks ago and especially on the Grand Prix the trade show organises for each edition rewarding innovation. Panatere was nominated for their innovation which consists in producing solar steel using a solar furnace and scrap from the production of watch and medical components and by doing so having steel which has a 0 carbon impact.
Swiss watchmaking industry embraces the circular economy
Powering through some 120,000 tonnes of stainless steel per year, Switzerland’s industry is one of Europe’s hungriest consumers of the metal. As the industry comes under increased pressure to reduce its environmental impact, local entrepreneurs are moving to establish recycling chains to enable this valuable raw material to be reused including in the watchmaking industry.
Discover the best inventions of the region presented in Geneva
Last week, manufacturers from the Jura Arc emerged from a period without a show of almost two years to present their new products to visitors to the EPHJ in Geneva. In Saignelégier, Panatere produces watchmaking quality steel by recycling shavings from local micromechanical production.
Solar steel from the Jura?
Heavy at Panatere, yes, but heavy zero carbon! Joining the action to the word, such was the approach rather well perceived by this SME already well anchored for 10 years in the landscape of watchmaking-jewelry and related sectors, other microtechnology in particular.
Swiss Made circular, the ultimate luxury.
Chips, the black gold of the Jura. One day soon, not so far away in fact, waste will become raw material. And therefore, no longer at the origin of costs related to their displacement and their destruction, but of the kilos to monetize. Already, when Panatere, a Jura SME, undertook to federate...
