Sign of identification of the producer (SIP)

The sign of identification of the producer (SIP) is a compulsory mark featured on Swiss watches and movements which allows application of the Swiss made ordinance to be monitored and helps in the fight against counterfeiting.

The SIP comprises a series of alphanumerical characters. It may be replaced by the manufacturer’s trademark or company name if certain conditions are fulfilled.

Based on the Swiss ordinance on the protection of trademarks and governed by an implementing regulation, SIPs are assigned and registered by the FH.
