Build you own watch.

In 1930 Otto Frei, a master Watchmaker, and his wife Alice, a renowned hairspring vibrator, began making & selling watch parts and repairing watches in San Francisco. In search of warmer weather they soon moved across the bay to Oakland,

where the company headquarters is located to this day. Under the leadership of Otto and Alice's son, John Frei Sr., the company became the leading watch material supply house west of the Rocky Mountains. John Sr., retired in 1989 since then Bob Frei has been running the material department.

Over the years, the company expanded its line of tools & supplies for the precision industries. Many renowned scientists, including those who help developed the first LED & LCD electric watches, are customers of Otto Frei. The company is still known around the world simply as Otto Frei.
