人们经常用隐形冠军，来形容那些所在的行业非常独特，不为平常人所知，但其设计生产能力往往令人震惊地能够控制上大部分产能的工业企业。而 Nivarox FAR SA这家公司，则可以说是当之无愧的瑞士钟表业隐形冠军。其控制了全球几乎全部游丝摆轮的生产，甚至可以说是整个全球钟表工业隐形的心脏。
到了1984年，Nivarox和FAR合并为现在的企业，后来又几经变更，目前归属斯沃琪集团。是Nicholas Hayek在钟表工业布局中除ETA，Lemania，FP等机芯供应商之外非常重要的一环。可以说斯沃琪集团通过这些公司基本控制了钟表工业核心零配件 的生产，目前斯沃琪还拥有多家从事表壳、表带的供应商，其在瑞士甚至全球钟表工业的影响力和控制力都是非常强的。
有很多钟表行业的专家都说，手工生产10枚超级复杂包括陀飞轮、万年历等 功能的机芯，和大规模工业化生产10万枚非常简单只有大三针时间显示功能的通用机芯，其实一样困难，解决这两种工业难题的方式方法，我相信也正造就了瑞士 钟表业法语区品牌和德语区大规模工业生产这相对的两大体系。在一个成熟品牌的产品线中，必然是手工打造的复杂腕表，和基于大规模工业生产，适 合大多数消费群体的商务、运动、休闲腕表相结合，这也正是瑞士钟表行业为什么能够屹立于之巅的原因吧！
The invisible champion is often used to describe the industry that is unique and not known to the average person, but its capacity to design is often shocking enough to control most of the world's productive industries. and Nivarox far SA This company, it can be said to be well-deserved Swiss watch industry stealth champion. It controls the production of almost all the world's gossamer balance, even the invisible heart of the entire global watch industry.
Nivarox named in 1933 Dr. Straumann developed a new Ni-cr alloy, is the German: "Resist deformation and oxidation" abbreviation. The Gossamer (Hairspring) made by this new alloy can be used for non-magnetic, dustproof, rust-proof, very small thermal deformation coefficient, strong oxidation resistance and other good industrial properties. Therefore, it is widely used in watchmaking industry. Because of the excellent performance of new materials, some of the pvious complex designs were greatly simplified, which further facilitated the mechanization and industrial production of the watch industry. and Nivarox rapid rise to a unique leading enterprises. And Far Company (German: "Joint Parts Factory" abbreviation) also in 1932 years or so in force Locke (Le Locle) set up, engaged in the production and assembly of watches and clocks. All two companies were in the Asuag and belonged to Swiss state-owned enterprises.
By 1984 years, Nivarox and far merged into the current enterprise, and later changed, now belong to Swatch Group. Nicholas Hayek is a very important part of the clock industrial in addition to ETA, Lemania, FP and other movement suppliers.
It can be said that Swatch Group through these companies basically control the production of the clock industry core parts, now Swatch also has a number of shell, bracelet suppliers, its in Switzerland and even the global watch industry influence and control is very strong.
There are many watch industry experts say, hand production of 10 super complex including tourbillon, perpetual calendar and other functions of the movement, and mass-industrialized production of 100,000 very simple general-purpose movements with only a three-year-old-time display function, in fact, as difficult as the way to solve these two industrial problems, I believe it is also creating the Swiss watch industry's top brands and German large-scale industrial production of this relatively independent two systems. In the product line of a mature brand, it is necessary to create the top-level complex wrist watch by hand, and the combination of business, sports and Leisure watch, which is suitable for most consumer groups based on large-scale industrial production, is the reason why the Swiss watch industry can stand atop the world.
