On 12 March 2020, the time had come: after three years of development, Soprod presented a new movement, the Newton P092 calibre.
Here we take a look inside this still relatively new watch movement. Let’s see what surprises it has to offer!
Besançon, capital of Franche-Comté in eastern France, was once the centre of the French watchmaking industry. The first watch manufactory in Besançon was founded as early as 1793 by some watchmakers from Switzerland. Around 1880, 90% of the watches manufactured in France came from Besançon! Between 1883 and 1914, the number of watchmaking companies in the city grew by 105 to a total of 348.
