Why are almost all premium brands of wristwatches "Made in Switzerland"? Well, it could have been the French if the Catholic majority had not persecuted their highly skilled and inventive craftsmen who mostly were of the protestant faith. Many skilled french clockmakers fled to neighboring Switzerland, often Geneva, where they received asylum and were even exempted from paying taxes. In the region of Geneva (the valleys of the Jura mountain chain) small clock workshops were set up and, very often peasants were used as workforce during the cold winter season when they had time at their hand and did not need to work their fields.
