  • Biver ha riscosso successo in Hublot, così come lo aveva avuto in precedenza ringiovanendo i brand Blancpain e Omega, entrambi attualmente di proprietà di Swatch Group. Biver è anche noto per il suo esclusivo formaggio svizzero. A Biver e alla sua leadership nell'industria orologiera svizzera viene attribuito il merito di "aver salvato da solo [sic] ... [il settore] dal movimento al quarzo. Nel 1980, anche i brand orologieri svizzeri più prestigiosi avevano nelle loro collezioni "una percentuale di circa il 70% di movimenti al quarzo" da allora, l'industria orologiera svizzera ha segnato una "notevole ripresa", con esportazioni nel 2010 stimate per un valore di 16,2 miliardi di franchi svizzeri.

In 1980, even prestigious Swiss watch brands had "a proportion of 70% more or less quartz movements in their collection;" since then, the Swiss watch industry has staged a "remarkable recovery", with 2008 exports valued at CHF17 billion.
