Boley Workshop

Quick recap


After April 2022, BOLEY conducted the 2nd workshop on Saturday 21/10/2023. Approximately 30 interested parties attended this year's workshop, confirming BOLEY's expectations and underpinning the status of this workshop as an important event for information gathering in new technologies. Of the 30 participants, half came from a larger radius of 100 km, which underlines the supra-regional character of this event.

One of the most outstanding features of this year's event was the quality of the environment for workshop leaders and participants alike. BOLEY placed great emphasis on creating an atmosphere conducive to exchange and innovation.

This type of workshop was also praised for the high level of practical exchange between the qualified speakers. The expert discussions offered at the event were of a high standard and attracted a knowledgeable audience who were keenly interested in the topics covered on marking laser technology, CNC-controlled engraving machines, PUK fine welding technology and computer-controlled watch testing.

The quality of the exchange between participants, whether watchmaking or goldsmithing, remains the strength of the BOLEY workshop. Fruitful encounters and potential partnerships were at the heart of this year's event, a feature on which BOLEY will continue to build.

The vast majority of participants surveyed were very satisfied with the event and have already expressed their interest in the next workshop.

So we are looking forward to another exceptional workshop in April/May 2024, the exact date of which we will communicate in due time. Stay tuned and join us for an unforgettable experience in the exciting world of watch and jewellery technology.

In the past years, Gebrüder Boley has developed into one of the leading tool dealers in the watch and jewelry industry in Europe and the world. We offer one of the most extensive ranges of high quality watchmaking and goldsmith tools: from the classic watchmaker screwdriver to the high quality ring saw pliers “made in Germany” you will find everything from one source at Because our foreign customers also appreciate the quality of our tools with the own brand “Boley”, today almost 35% of all tools are exported.

Why engravings?

Your advantage


Personalize and enhance the customer experience in your store, through your e-commerce website or even at your on-site events. Gebruder Boley will guide you in your multi-channel marketing strategy so that you are able to offer your customers customization of their watches or jewellery.

Give your customers the opportunity to make each of your products a unique gift. Customizing your products has the following benefits:

1. Creates a unique, positive customer experience: on-site engraving creates a unique experience by allowing your customers to witness the engraving of the item.

2. Strengthens customer relationship: customer satisfaction is the first step to customer loyalty. Personalization increases the value of products and services and creates a memorable moment for your customers.

3. Customized offers: The versatility of CNC engraving machines allows you to diversify your business and expand your customer offering. Thanks to the digital preview, customers can choose their object and specify what they want to engrave
on it (text, illustration, photo, etc.).

4. Difference from the competition: personalized engraving is a great way to stand out from the crowd. The consumer shares their unique products, thus promoting your specialty store on social media and to friends.

5. Strengthens your brand image: personalized advice can offer original and unlimited options that reflect the image of your brand.

Rhodium baths

Rhodium has fallen sharply


The price of rhodium has fallen significantly in recent weeks, and we don't want to withhold you of this. Yet rhodium is often more expensive than gold and platinum due to its rarity and increased industrial demand. And yet it represents an important precious metal in the field of jewellery refinement, as it forms a beautiful, brightly shining coating and offers your jewellery pieces excellent protection against tarnishing. To respond to the increased demand, we have increased our stock of rhodium baths. Take advantage of our stock availability and order as soon as possible at the lower rhodium rates.


Rhodium baths “Rhoduna” of the brand Umicore have been added to our programme. Umicore is one of the world's leading processors of special chemicals and has taken over the production of rhodium baths from Wieland Edelmetalle. In the course of the changeover, a new combination rhodium/platinum bath was also launched, which is available under Boley Art.-No. 695641 as “Rhoduna PT One”. This special bath with a proportion of Pt 0.7g and RH 0.3g is characterised by a very advantageous price with a consistently assured gloss and anti-tarnish effect. All “Rhoduna” rhodium baths are operated with platinised titanium anodes.

  • Identify your watch and click on the magnifying glass to see the detailed view of the related spare parts.

successful trade fair sales

Around 24,000 trade visitors and over 800 exhibitors stand for an impressive balance sheet and a successful return of INHORGENTA 2023 after two difficult years due to Covid. With a 51 percent increase in visitors compared to 2022 and a 40 percent share of foreign visitors, the growth figures are clear and prove the increasing internationalisation of this trade fair. The course for international growth among brands and dealers has thus been set correctly for celebrating the 50th anniversary of INHORGENTA MUNICH next year.

GEBRÜDER BOLEY, exhibitor from the very beginning at INHORGENTA, was back after a two-year absence and was able to point to successful trade fair sales. This year, the focus was on CNC-controlled engraving machines and marking lasers of the Gravotech brand, CNC-controlled watch testers of the ONEOF brand as well as setting and engraving technology from GRS. At our newly designed exhibition stand, we were able to welcome not only familiar faces but also numerous new foreign customers. “We were once again positively surprised by the number of visitors and the good atmosphere at the trade fair and will not miss the 50th anniversary of the INHORGENTA trade fair next year,” says Michael Lutz, managing partner of Boley. the follow-ups…

2023 update installed

We have added our major Boley update 2023 to the calibre database. As of now, you will find more than 16,000 calibres, over 4,100 movements and interchangeabilities and approximately 160,000 watch parts registered in our database.

Search our extensive database for calibre information, watch movement interchangeabilities and spare parts and find the matching movement parts listed quickly and clearly.

And this is how it works:

(1) Are you looking for specific spare parts for your repair? Simply enter the calibre number in the corresponding search field and then use the magnifying glass function to select the desired movement from the list.
Tip: The fewer digits you enter, the larger the selection list. This means that even calibre numbers that are difficult to recognise can be found. Conversely, you can also enter the manufacturer and the calibre, which will reduce the selection list and increase your accuracy.

(2) In the calibre data sheet you will find extensive and detailed information about the size and functions of the movement. Many calibres also have a pictogram.

(3) When you see this button, you can call up a detailed exploded view of the movement. The document is displayed using the free Acrobat Reader.

(4) Did you know that you can find out the interchangeability of the winding stems with the help of our calibre database? Compare the part number on our packaging with that of the calibre. Often different movements have the same winding stems. Reduce and organise your own stock and save money.

(5) For quartz or solar movements, the battery number is shown here.

(6) We have archived our spare parts for you under the heading Movement Parts. Here you can find the respective prices and the availability of spare parts.
Tip: If the spare part you are looking for is marked yellow or not listed, we may still have it in stock. Please ask for availability and price via our chat button. Many of our old, in-stock spare parts are currently not yet registered in the database and are just waiting for your request!

(7) In the movements section, we offer you replacement and exchange movements for the calibre you are looking for. Prices and availability are of course immediately visible and will speed up your quotation and procurement.
