Jaquet Droz Joins RJC

(PRESS RELEASE) With a commitment to continuous improvement in its business and, after reviewing its systems and practices, Jaquet Droz has officially been awarded the RJC Certification following an independent external audit.

The RJC is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2005. Its mission is to establish standards for a responsible global supply chain, promoting confidence across the entire jewelry and watch industry.

As a fully independent organization, it individually certifies that each of its members adopts environmental, social, ethical and responsible practices in their sourcing and use of precious metals (gold, silver, platinum), diamonds and colored gemstones. With its certification, Jaquet Droz joins other brands in the Swatch Group, including Omega and Harry Winston.

“From exceptional watchmaking to ethical excellence, joining the RJC is another step we are proud to have taken,” explains Christian Lattmann, CEO of Montres Jaquet Droz. “For us, this certification is a source of continuous commitment, but we believe that it is part of our social and environmental responsibility, especially in relation to younger generations, who are particularly aware of this issue and to whom we are indebted.”

As such, Jaquet Droz reaffirms its desire to be a brand that respects its customers, suppliers and employees, as well as its environment. One hundred percent of its components are made in Switzerland, primarily in La Chaux-de-Fonds and the Vallée de Joux. Within its Ateliers d’Art, the Maison carries on the tradition of using artisanal crafts, in particular enameling, plique-à-jour, miniature painting, engraving, setting and paillonné enameling. With the creation and production of its exceptional timepieces and automatons, it continues to demonstrate its expertise in watchmaking and art mechanics, which was recently included in UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage.

This cross-disciplinary undertaking involves all positions within the company, without exception, and unites its teams through an ethical and responsible approach for a sustainable future.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
