About us

Diamaze Microtechnology SA was founded in 2008 and is an independent and privately owned company. The headquarter is located in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, in the centre of the Jura region, where the heart of the watch industry beats. This is also where our products are processed. We are specialized on escapement systems and micro components made of Diamond, used in the most sophisticated watches.

We are the leaders in the field of ultra-precision machining of Diamond, based on specialized microtechnological processes. For the first time, our process technology allows us for a perfect finishing of smallest diamond watch components. Besides functional requirements, we also meet the highest esthetical levels eg. by chamfering or decoration.

Escapements –
Highest accuracy

In close cooperation with our customers, we develop and produce innovative escapement systems that stand out in terms of functionality, efficiency and durability. On request, they can be delivered ready for assembly on customer-specific axes (T0). Due to the physical properties of Diamond our escapements typically provide an improved isochronism and a higher energy yield. We design and manufacture all standard escapement systems compatible to pointages 20.2, 20.3 and 20.5.

Diamaze escapement designs favourabely combine a 20 years experience in material engineering, process know-how, tribology and micro-kinetics.

Our escapement systems and micro components are available in two different product lines: Diamond Coated Silicon (DCS) or All Diamond (AD).

All Diamond (AD)

Full Diamond components:
100% Diamond!

Diamond micro-components combine value and functionality. Especially in the watch industry the use of the world's hardest material opens up completely new possibilities in terms of design and functionalities for a multitude of components. Due to the excellent combination of the materials properties of Diamond, extremely light weight and wear resistant components can be produced. Functional esthetics as well as wear resistance and outstanding frictional properties are among the characteristics of Diamond components.

Diamond Coated Silicon (DCS)

Diamond coated Silicon components:
An innovation!

By coating Silicon components with Diamond, the advantages of both materials can be favourably combined. Silicon is light weight and can be processed very precisely and reproducibly using micro-technical etching processes (DRIE) and therefore serves as a shaping substrate. The component gets its incomparable mechanical stability, functionality and durability from a thin 3D coating of Diamond. This produces mechanically robust and wear-less components that are cost-effective in series production.

The thin Diamond coating prevents efficiently damage from assembly or cleaning steps as well as chipping and fraction during operation.

Decorative Diamond (DD)

Decorative Diamond coatings –
A refinement of the highest quality

Decorative Diamond coatings are synthesized at temperatures between 700°C and 900°C utilizing gases such as methane and hydrogen. In this way millions of small Diamond crystals grow together in the form of a plate and create a brilliantly reflecting surface. Depending on the incidence of light and purity, the reflections and colour change. Decorative Diamond is also interesting for the jewellery industry, as it can be cut into any possible two-dimensional shape. Typical applications are watch dials, hands and similar applications.

Customized Development and Research -
Please contact us!

The advancement of our technology enables us to transform ideas and prototypes into marketable products, parts, components and systems.

In addition to the development of own product ideas, Diamaze Microtechnology SA offers tailor-made cooperations to industrial partners for the joint development of applications in Diamond. In individual cases also provide the service of a customer-related product developments. In close cooperation with or on behalf of our customers, we develop and/or produce customer-specific components that stand out in terms of functionality, efficiency and durability. On request we can also deliver systems ready for assembly. Our escapement systems and micro components are available in three different versions: depending on the custom needs these components can be made entirely of Diamond (All Diamond AD), Diamond Coated Silicon (DCS), or for decorative purposes they have a non-functional Decorative Diamond coating (DD).

Do you have a general question about our products or the technology we have developed? Or are you looking for an industrial partner or service provider for a specific problem? Please call us or send us an email, together we will try to find a solution for your request.
