OLDEST WATCH BRANDS IN THE WORLD

Post by koimaster » November 28th 2020, 11:52pm

We often wonder: what are the oldest watch brands in the world? Who is the oldest watchmaker? We did some research on the websites of watch brands and watchmakers, and tried to find other sources that confirm the stories on those websites. We found some interesting things.

The list of the oldest watch brands and watchmakers in the world is ordered by the year of founding, or starting, or the year they claim to have their origin. Which sometimes differs from the founding year. Let’s take a look. If you find a clickable watch brand, we have some of their latest models on our site. Brands with a * behind the name have a doubtful year of founding or starting. If you see the temple icon we have a short story about their history in which we explain what stories we have found. So far.

That list would look very different, if it wouldn’t include zombie brands, or if they’d be listed by the year they were ”revived.”
