Francois, who organized the factory at Saint-Croix, Vianna offered a job. Alter then decided to open its brand and registered company Janvier SA (In honor of the French watchmaker Antide Janvier, who lived in the 18-19 centuries), engaged in execution of orders of major brands such as Franck Muller, Audemars Piguet, Jaquet Droz, Maboussin, Breguet.
