Hello and welcome to my website about Helvetia wristwatches.

1940s 18K Helvetia Watch

My First Helvetia Watch

I have had an interest in Helvetia watches ever since I bought my first vintage watch, which by pure accident happened to be a Helvetia, about 20 years ago.

I started to investigate the brand and, though there was not much available, the more I read the more interesting it became.


From their birth alongside Omega, as a manufacturer of military, pilots and sports watches in the 30s and 40s through to their, quite distinctive, post war dress watches. All the time developing and manufacturing their own in-house movements, often at the cutting edge of research and development.

So please use the links above to have a browse, read the history of Helvetia, look up your watch’s date of manufacture or marvel at Helvetia’s own movements and patent shock protection.

Please do let me have any feedback on the comments section of each page, I still have a lot to learn about Helvetia and all information is gratefully received.
