Registration is free - ask your friend to sign up and post on here ( maybe he can provide concise details as to budget ).

A small company but with history cost a small fortune.

If you mean 19 century then it's a few mil fr. for not well sound name.

Re: friend want buy watch company in swiss.someone kowns some company want sell?

By searching I found a nice little watch company with quite a good reputation and steady sales. Perhaps they are looking to sell? Their coordinates are here:

"That tit's post was the tits!"

That works.

To the OP, you aren't going to find much info around here. You may find info on the logistics of buying a company in Switzerland as a foreigner, but nothing specific like a 'hot tip' on a company that's up for sale. If you (or your friend) are serious, then the best thing to do is research different small companies that interest you and simply ask if they want to sell. There are many small companies located in Le Locle and the Vallee de Joux, as well as Geneva, Bienne, and elsewhere, and after the last few years of turmoil they may jump at the chance to hand off to a new owner (despite what the media says it's tough in the watch world these days).

Re: friend want buy watch company in swiss.someone kowns some company want sell?

I'm sure, after doing the right research you could find a quality Swiss watch manufacture who would be willing to sell for the right
price. But you have to give more details to what type of watches you are looking for, are you looking for someone to manufacture
a specific watch for you or are you looking to build up a already existing brand in your country...
send me a Private message and explain what it is exactly you are looking for, maybe I could help you

Re: friend want buy watch company in swiss.someone kowns some company want sell?

I guess if your budget is not so high then you could target the lower end of the market - plastic watches with quartz movements.

Can I suggest you approach Swatch Group. They've been around since 1983, so have some history.

Give Nayla a call and say hello from me.
