Our artisans work with passion, patience and precision
Altan Güldür, founder of Nobel Manufacture, was trained in his father’s bootmaker’s workshop. His father passed on to him his passion for leather work and his love of beautiful objects.
Altan Güldür opened his first leather workshop when he was only 18 years old. From the very first year, he made a wallet for the customers of a bank in the canton of Vaud. It was then that he decided to specialize in corporate gifts.
Founding of the Manufacture
Opening of the first Nobel Manufacture workshop. From this date on, the entire production is carried out by the craftsmen of the Manufacture.
Invention of the watch travel case
It was in 2006 that the idea emerged in Altan Güldür’s mind: the watch case should allow the watch to be positioned optimally, both elegantly and practically. After a year of manufacturing tests, the first version of the Geneva case was launched in spring 2007.
Our values are the guidelines that drive us in our daily activities. They contribute to the sustainability and success of our company.
