About us

Rubis has been making precision tweezers for over 70 years. In the beginning, the tweezers were used exclusively in the Swiss watch industry. Only extremely precise and high-quality tweezers could be used to assemble the sensitive mechanical movements of well-known manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Cartier or Rolex. This gave rise to an independent handicraft tradition at Rubis, which was characterized by a pronounced sense of precision and the beauty of the shape that the Swiss watchmakers have always practiced.

Rubis soon became the market leader. Tweezers were not only made for the watch industry, but also for other demanding applications in electronics and microelectronics, robotics, telecommunications, space travel, research, biogenetics, pharmaceuticals, laboratories, surgery, microscopy, chemistry, medicine, biology and microbiology. Global companies such as Motorola, General Electric, Siemens, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard and renowned research institutions such as the Fraunhofer Institute and the University of Zurich have been working with Rubis tweezers for years.

MADE IN SWITZERLAND

There are a few things that really matter to Swiss people. That is why you can feel it in our products. Precision, for example. This typical Swiss desire to make everything as precise as possible down to the smallest detail, this perfectionism not to give up until everything is exactly the way it should be. It's just inside us. Maybe we developed this passion because the winters in the remote mountain villages used to be so long and we had to do something. The finest movements, for example.

Since we have no raw materials other than ourselves, we attach great importance to making things last a long time. Ideally, as long as possible, so that it can be passed on from one generation to the next. This is how we build our houses, knives, watches, bags - and our tweezers. Which is why we don't like unnecessary frills, but rather clear, timeless forms, straightforward and functional.
