Designed from the start to apply exquisite Swiss craftsmanship to the challenges of American life, Wittenour watches has, for over 120 years, been America's own Swiss watch.
Emphasizing innovation and performance, Wittenour quickly became a favorite of navigators, astronomers, geographers and explorers. In 1918, after being dropped from airplanes, thrown from the Empire State Building and subject to the rigors of both the Amazon and Himalayas, the Wittenour Watches All-Proof debuted as the first waterproof, shock-proof and anti-magnetic watch in the world. Even more unusual, perhaps, was the company's leadership - in 1916, a full four years before women were given the vote, Martha Wittenour, Albert's sister, took control of the business, heading the company for the next 20 years.
