Minsk Watch Plant JSC “Luch” – 70

Everyone has his own perception of time. But to be involved in its calculation is a special privilege.

Having become a legal advisor to Group Franck Muller Watchland S.A. on entering the Belarusian market and acquiring a controlling stake in the Minsk Watch Plant in 2009, the Borovtsov & Salei team, together with Luch, is keeping up with the times.

Thank you LUCH for your trust! Happy anniversary LUCH!
