The watch factory was established in 1888 in Grenchen, Switzerland. Reliability, precision, innovation - its founding principles, were chosen by the Kurth Brothers to rapidly guide the Swiss company to an important place in the international watchmaking world. In 2005, the Swiss watchmaking brand took a bold step into the prestigious Formula 1 and became Official Partner to the Sauber Petronas F1 Team. This partnership with the Swiss Sauber F1 Team continues to this day.
