* There is little knowledge about Swiss company Straumann. What information can be gathered is that the company was founded in 1954 by Dr. Reinhardt Straumann in the Swiss village of Waldenburg. The company started in the manufacture of specialised alloys for fine timing and it is believed that luxury watch brand Moser still have a connection with Straumann alloy springs. The company must have gone into wristwatch manufacture during the early 1970s judging by the design of the above wristwatch but manufacturing would most likely have ceased during the now famous "Quartz Crisis", which killed off many hundreds of Swiss brands. Straumann still exist as a company and are primarily involved in the research, development, manufacture and supply of medical devices.

 

* This particular piece has a design heavily influenced by 1970s fashion. A lovely chocolate brown dial, chunky hands, cushion shaped case and domed plexi-glass. The watch houses an automatic ETA 2789 calibre with quick set day/date display and centre second hand. 

 

* Although not a famous brand, this watch has bags of character and marks an interesting turning point in the history of Swiss watchmaking.
