WM Vintage
The watch that nearly never was...
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, at the Federal Office for Intellectual Property of the Swiss Confederation at Berne and in 1926 his invention was exhibited at the Basle Trade Fair.
Today, more than 80 years later, WM of Switzerland recreates the design of that very first automatic watch, and has handcrafted a new original to the demanding standards of vintage watch collectors.
