Habersaat Honored

François Habersaat, former president of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (FH), in January was awarded the title “Commander of the National Order of the Southern Cross” by the Brazilian ambassador to Switzerland, Roberto Soares-de-Oliveira. FH president Jean-Daniel Pasche said the distinction conferred upon Habersaat reflected on the entire Swiss watch industry, which is “committed to maintaining harmonious relations with all countries of the world.”

The ceremony was held in the Brazilian embassy in Bern, Switzerland’s capital.
