News & Updates

10th May 2015 Security Upgrade

The Leosics websites security certificate has now been expanded to cover all website pages (the security certificate previously covered account, checkout and  payment pages).  All Leosics website pages will now display the green padlock symbol in the URL bar at the top of a page.

While not essential for pages that do not require personal  information to be transmitted across the internet, we felt additional security that does not adversely affecting page loading times is worthwhile.

Pages bookmarked using the http URL prefix (rather than https) will be automatically redirected by the Leosics website servers.

25th March 2015 Server Upgrade

We will be carrying out a server upgrade on Monday, 25 May 2015. This will occur between the hours of 2300 and 0600 BST,  the site will be unavailable for a period during these hours.

8th February 2015 Stock Updates

Sellita Stock

We now stock a comprehensive range of Sellita movement parts.   Sellita movements manufactured by the Swiss company are clones of ETA movements, as patents have expired on the original ETA movements.

With the decision by Swatch Group to severely restrict the availability of ETA (and other Swatch Group) parts, it is likely that Sellita movements will become more popular as a base for watch manufacturers.

Swiss Franc Exchange Rate

The recent decision by the Swiss Central bank to release the Swiss Franc from the exchange rate fixed by the bank for Euro/Swiss Franc (and by default all other currencies/Swiss Franc) has resulted in the cost of exports from Switzerland increasing by approximately 10 to 15%.

Current stock imported from Switzerland will remain at its original price, future replacement stock is likely to increase in price; we will do all  we can to keep the prices down.
