In 1897 the Original Swiss Army Knife was created in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
Swiss watches just like the Swiss Army knife, stand for quality "Made in Switzerland". Wenger S.A. with their Headquarters in Delémont in the Jura mountains, established in 1893, is one of Europe's leading knife makers and one of only two official producers of the Swiss Army knife. Skilled workers abound in the Jura mountains, where watch making is a predominant industry, manufacture the famous Wenger knives in multiple operations on the latest machinery.
Wenger watches are designed to meet the most rigorous military requirements. The specifications would impress even the boldest watchmaker. Wenger watches must withstand use in extreme cold and humidity; withstand impacts, magnetism, and sudden changes in altitude. During the Swiss Commando Raid, which brings together military teams from fifteen countries, Wenger watches are subjected to the worst that can be inflicted on a timepiece, and not on a laboratory test benches, but for real.
Uncompromising craftsmanship makes these watches worthy of the "cross and shield" emblem of the Swiss Army Brand. Around the corner or around the globe, classically styled Swiss Army watches will make sure that you're equipped for life's adventures. No matter what those adventures might be.
