Designed in Zurich, and individually assembled and adjusted by hand in Haute-Sorne in the Swiss Jura.
In keeping with the traditions of Ollech & Wajs, every watch undergoes more than a dozen operations and is inspected at regular stages of assembly – a rigorous, multistep quality-control process to ensure that it is perfectly finished.
Our watches are powered by independently tested movements from respected manufacturers – ETA 2824-2, Valjoux 7753 and Soprod Newton P092.
