Montfort Watches are a relatively new, decidedly SWISS watch company that currently occupies the space that could be described as the micro brand section, but it is important to understand that although micro in terms of the size of the operation and the number of employees, it is small. 
Media, communications and North American marketing and sales support are provided by Tempus Fugit Media (James Henderson). All watches ship to the customer directly from Switzerland, or from authorized retail partners.  

But in terms of the experience, know-how, and amount of work that goes into the product?  Well, that is something else entirely.

There are two key technological points that separate this Nyon based brand from pretty much everyone else out there.  The first is their pioneering use of 3D printed dials -



In their own words -
Developed with a Swedish company called Digital Metal from Sweden, the 3D printed dials on the Montfort Strata models are so complicated no other manufacturing technique would have been possible. The extreme precision and ultimate scalability of the digital metal solution makes this the perfect choice for the striking dials Montfort has on offer.

The second technological advance is the use of Super Stainless Steel -


Again, in their own words -
Super Stainless Steel has been developed in conjunction with AIM SA of Switzerland and Expanite A/S of Denmark. Initially developed for offshore and aerospace applications this gaseos carbo-nitriding technology is unparalleled in its flexibility, hardening performance and anti-corrosive properties.
By diffusing at low temperature both nitrogen and carbon into the surface of the material, a layer is formed with a case depth of approximately 0.04mm (0.0016 in) with a surface hardness around 1200 HV (Hardness Vickers scale). The treated steel is 8 times harder than standard steel improving drastically the resistance to scratches.
