Gottlieb Hauser founds the "Alpina Union Horlogère S.A (UH) / Schweizerische Uhrmacher-Genossenschaft (SUG)" ("Corporation of Swiss Watchmakers"). His vision was the "Alpinist Principle": uniting Swiss watchmaking industry forces to accomplish the highest manufacturing quality and technological innovation under the most favourable conditions. The Union soon began manufacturing its own calibres.
