AQC is a Swiss-based international association of leather bracelets manufacturers for the watch industry.
AQC stands in French for « Association pour l’Assurance Qualité des Fabricants de Bracelets Cuir », Association for Quality
Assurance of Leather Bracelets Manufacturers.
The association has been officially established on June 2014 by the five main bracelet manufacturers. Its members represent more than 80% of the premium worldwide production.
AQC was created to provide an additional service to the watch brands by enabling the traceability and conformity of the materials used in the manufacture of the leather bracelets.
AQC is also an open association, which means that all stakeholders involved in the leather bracelet value chain can participate in AQC meetings and develop the standards applicable within the profession in a "Win-win" logic.
In addition to a new design and an easier navigation, a platform accessible to members, watchbrands and tanneries allows you to find all the AQC documentation (RSL, veile, reports ...).
