Conventional risk loss "ting"

Though the Swiss first developed a quartz watch and ultrathin liquid crystal display (LCD), but because they stick to the tradition of mechanical watch, not timely to the development of new technology for large-scale market, made big mistakes.Japan in the 1970 s, a large number of development and production of low cost, fashionable appearance and changeful electronic quartz watches.Electronic quartz watches without wound, but accurate as well.Soon, the Japanese production of electronic quartz watch has become the world's first, to the Swiss watch industry to hit.The Swiss watch industry employment from 90000 to 30000 and the unemployed spurt.RuGu Jura mountains in 1970 had 1970 clock manufacturer, but by 1980, only less than a third.In the early eighty s, the Swiss watch industry from these mistakes and are determined to industry consolidation, to launch the world swatch quartz plastic fashion.From then on, the Swiss watch industry ushered in the spring a development.
