Content - Coating solutions for the watch-making and jewellery industry - tiny quantities for great added value.

Even tiny quantities make for great added value.

From industrially-manufactured everyday watches to mechanically exquisite big-brand masterpieces of Swiss watchmaking – for over 70 years watches have been ticking along with the aid of Berlac. We owe our position as market leader in this industry to our decades of experience as partners to exclusive Swiss luxury brands. In a segment where quality of workmanship, precision and reliability are inalienable elements of success, we make a major contribution to added value – with high-end lacquers in individually-produced small batches and with the finest nuancing in respect of effect and shading.

Whether printing inks, clear lacquers, base coats or casting-resin lacquers for decorative applications on watchfaces, hands and casings or masking and strippable coatings for temporary protection, our products are always in the premium class both aesthetically and technically.
