More about Ollech & Wajs:
Albert Wajs and Joseph Ollech started business together when they opened a watch shop in Zurich in 1956. At the start, the pair sold watches from brands like Breitling and Omega but decided to then to create their own brand, which was to become Ollech & Wajs Zürich, whose watches were first launched in 1959.
Using movements from ETA, Dubois Dépraz, and Valjoux, cases from Maison Étienne, and dials from Frères Lender du Locle, Ollech & Wajs Zürich found success in their release of pilot, dive, and other tool watches.
