Patria is a revival of a Swiss brand founded by the brothers Louis-Paul and César Brandt in Bienne in 1892. They had inherited a thriving business from their father Louis Brandt whose principal company introduced several brand names and eventually grew into what would become Omega, originally the name of a calibre. The Patria brand was used for the military watches made for officers and soldiers during the First World War; the brand survived until the late 1940s and then disappeared. It was brought back to business in May 2019 by initiative of current CEO Jolyon Lambert (also known as Jolyon Wardle), a British industrial designer who trained at Central Saint Martins, London. His career includes 3D renderings made for Grönefeld The Horological Brothers and work with Longines and A. Favre & Fils; Jolyon Lambert set up his owm 3D rendering company named Blade Render.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
