Who is WM of Switzerland?
WM of Switzerland is one of the leading European creators and distributors of high quality watches.
The WM of Switzerland team is trained by some of the most prestigious professionals in the watch-making industry, with proven experience.
WM of Switzerland trades via direct mail and – recently – online on the Internet, without intermediaries or retail outlets. This has allowed us to build our reputation for quality service and support and to achieve our company’s mission: to save on all superfluous marketing expenses and to offer high quality products at attractive and competitive prices.
The aims of WM of Switzerland
WM of Switzerland has been present in the history of Swiss and world watch making history. In the past 15 years, WM of Switzerland has strived to earn a reputation for recreating legendary and precious timepieces. WM of Switzerland believes that there is much in the history of watch making that is worth resurrecting and making available to everyone wishing to own a piece of watch making history, but priced to wear everyday.
This is how we discovered that in October 1923, John Harwood, an English watchmaker, developed a watch with an automatic winding mechanism that eliminated the need to manually wind a watch to keep it going. He registered his invention, the world's first automatic wristwatch, and exhibited it at the Basle Trade Fair.
Inspired by that brilliant original, WM of Switzerland has painstakingly recreated the design of that very first automatic watch. The result is the impressively handsome watch the WM Vintage Automatic.
Another example is the Kelly Watch. Twenty-three years ago, a Swiss watch manufacturer approached Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco – better known to the world as Grace Kelly – with an offer to design and produce a beautiful platinum watch just for her. Tragically, on September 13 1982, Grace Kelly had a terrible car accident and died the next day. The watch was totally forgotten.
Twenty-three years later, inspired by that watch, WM of Switzerland has recreated the elegance and design of that original watch that we believe would have become legendary. The result is the beautiful Kelly Platinum.
How is it possible for the WM of Switzerland watches to cost so little?
A little over a year ago, we decided to develop an automatic watch equal in performance to a watch costing 3,000 Euros plus, but which we could sell direct to our customers for under 300 Euros. Initially, the idea seemed unachievable. How was it going to be possible to manufacture a high quality watch at such a ridiculously low price? In the end, the solution was far simpler than we could have imagined.
We initiated a search of components and manufacturing processes in close cooperation with world-wide suppliers, and disregarded the long-time established costly traditional manufacturing processes. In the end, we are today capable of manufacturing the same high-quality watch with a saving of 60% on the production costs.
Also in trading directly with the final consumer, without intermediaries or retail outlets, we save a lot of marketing money.
We pass all these savings on to our clients and offer our creations at unbeatable prices.
