They first distributed the Breitling and Omega brands, before launching their own brand: OWZ Ollech & Wajs Zürich.
The production, modest at its beginnings, was assembled on site no. 55 Stocker Strasse, on the ground floor of a beautiful bourgeois building located near the Hotel Baur au Lac. Albert Wajs, spearhead of the company Ollech & Wajs, very quickly decided to specialize on the assembly of reliable and accurate watches, using proven movements (Dùbois Depraz, Landeron and Valjoux), with robust cases in stainless steel (Maison Etienne), Tritium hands (Universo à la Chaux de Fonds) and functional and legible dials (Brothers Lender du Locle). Ollech&Wajs manufactured under different brands, including OWZ, Helsa and Piz Palu, before focusing on OW in the early 1960s.This item is in the category "Jewellery & Watches\Watches, Parts & Accessories\Watches\Wristwatches".
