Pierce made most of their movements themselves at their own factory. In many cases Pierce incorporated novel features into their movements, and their chronograph and automatic wristwatch movements are especially unusual and sought after by collectors. Pierce BEGAN manufacturing MOVEMENTS AFTER  the ebouche manufacturers refused to supply movements to Pierce. They had to start designing and manufacturing their own movements. Most Pierce collectors  focus on collecting wristwatches rather than pocket watches. Pierce made WWII wrist watches had app 10 different Pierce calibres and at least one chronograph movement, the Pierce calibre 134. All Pierce movements were manufactured between 1930 and 1955

The history of  Pierce company began in 1883. The brand was founded in Bienne, Switzerland. It is one of the centers of the Swiss watchmaking, where a lot of the most famous watch companies had been established. The founder of the elite  Pierce company chose the right place for the watch production, as Bienne had been the workplace of more than 1700 watchmakers for a long time. 

Pierce 1883 watch company was founded by Leon Levy Freres and his brothers. As for every company founder, it was very important for them to gain love, to win recognition and to establish a reputation as a producers of premium quality watches. It should be mentioned, that actually the founders of the watch brand have managed not only to make a name for themselves, but also to obtain the recognition of many watch connoisseurs. But in the year of  Pierce foundation, the watch market was not so rich of various models as it is now. At that time, chronographs were not so popular, watches were not water resistant and the automatic movements were housed in the watch cases extremely seldom. Pierce company began to develop and release the wrist watches as well as pocket chronographs. For the watch production the brothers used only high quality materials. The best watchmakers, working in Pierce company, created small masterpieces, that won the hearts of many watch connoisseurs. 

At the present time Pierce watches combine the old horological traditions with the innovative technologies. The refined watches, such as Arabesque, Observator, Commander, Air Command, Flightcalendar, Ocean Drive, are the striking examples of the high quality and the exclusive design. The round watch cases are produced from 316L stainless steel. Several models have the guilloche dials, that feature Arabic numerals, two hands and a small  second hand at “6:00”. The other models have the dark dials with three long hands and numerals 12, 3, 6 and 9, enclosed in the triangles. The third model is presented with the steel case and the toothed bezel. In this case, the designers have chosen the light-coloured dials, that feature two beautiful hands, a date aperture at “3:00” position ans a small second hand at “6:00” position. Pierce watch collection also includes stainless steel chronographs with the black dials, that feature the date aperture at “6:00” position and the chronograph counters at “3:00”, “6:00” and “9:00”. This original model also has the toothed steel bezel, giving the watch a wonderful image. The watch dials are protected by the sapphire crystals. The watches come with the leather straps ans steel buckles. All watches by  Pierce company are equipped with the in-house automatic movements. It's worth mentioning, that  Pierce is one of the first brands, that have developed the automatic movements for their watches.

A History of Rolex Watches

Hans Wilsdorf founded the company we now know as Rolex in 1905. Born in Kulmbach, Germany in 1881, the company, Wilsdorf & Davies, was based in London. By 1908 it had become one of the leading watch companies in the UK. It was in this year that he coined the name Rolex.
Official Chronometer Certification was awarded to Rolex in 1910 from the "Bureau Officiel" in Switzerland, the first time this had ever been given to a wristwatch. This was to be the first of many accolades awarded to the watch, including the Class A Precision from the Kew Observatory in 1914.
In 1926 the Rolex Oyster was released. It was the first wristwatch to be considered waterproof, proven a year later when the watch was worn by the swimmer Mercedes Gleitze in his successful bid to cross the English Channel. This was beneficial to Wilsdorf whom had sponsored the event and gained considerable exposure for his new Oyster Watch. Wilsdorf recognized the importance of advertising and marketing his creation in order to gain publicity and prestige. 1931 saw the creation of the Perpetual Rotor, a mechanism now seen as the basis for self-winding movements. In the following years Rolex released the first Oyster Perpetual Lady-date (1954) the GMT Master with dual time zone function (1955) and the first Day-Date (1956).
Andre Heiniger took over the company following the death of Hans Wildorf on 06 July 1960. Rolex continued to invent and innovate in terms of technical skill and style throughout the 2nd half of the century. The Sea-dweller (1967) was certified as reaching depths of up to 1,220 meters making it the choice for Professional Divers - a point that was quickly adopted in advertising the model. The Explorer II (1978) and Cosmograph Daytona (1988) were also released to international waiting lists securing Rolex as one of the worlds most prestigious watch brands.

Golana is a Swiss watch brand which makes affordable watches.Its origin can be traced back to 1898. In the small Swiss village of Les Bioux Norbert Bernet began a watch making tradition that was to last generations. His passion for precision, performance and perfection were put into every watch case that he handmade. The years passed and in 1956 the license was sold to Heinz Goll and his wife Anna. A new watch brand was born, watches whose quality has won gold awards and taken the brand right across Europe. Golana. Times have changed and so have watches. But more than a century later Bernet’s original legacy of Swiss precision remains unchanged. And Golana watches will continue to keep it going and going and going.

Brief Information on Seiko Credors In 1969, Seiko wanted to design a specially selected wrist watch series, one that was high end and made of precious metals (14/18K gold or platinum). In 1974, the series was grouped and named "SEIKO KUREDORU” ( SEIKO CRET DOR ). “ CRET D'OR “ means " the golden top” in French. The symbol of Credor is derived from the chinese word "Mountain" and symbolise the aim of reaching the summit and touches the cloud and the heaven. In 1978 the Credor was introduced as a high end quartz, made of gold or platinum. Not until 1996 was it introduced as a mechanical. Along with the 6S auto movement, the 4S and 8L series movements were used in the Credor mechanical line.
