    Abstract

    [fre] Résumé . Cette contribution présente un cas de transfert international de technologie dans l'industrie horlogère entre l'Occident et le Japon au cours des années 1880-1940. Il montre quel est le rôle des industries horlogères suisse et américaine dans ce processus et comment les entreprises horlogères nippones, principalement Seiko, se sont développées en recourant à des techniques occidentales. L'attention est aussi portée sur la réaction des milieux horlogers suisses face à l'affirmation de ce nouveau rival, sur la tentative de mettre fin au transfert de technologie horlogère vers le Japon et sur l'échec de cette politique. [eng] Abstract . This paper focuses on international technology transfer in watchmaking industry between Japan and the West during the years 1880-1940. It shows which role both Swiss and American watchmaking industries played in this process and how Japanese watchmakers, especially the company Seiko, did develop themselves using Western technologies. It also goes through the reaction of Swiss watchmaking business circles facing this new industrial and commercial rival, how they acted in order to put an end to this technology transfer to Japan and how come their policy failed.
