Oskar Kessler acquired a lot of professional experience as a watchmaker employed by famous watch companies. In 1919, he fulfilled his many years dream and founded his own company named WEGA.
In 1954 he moved to the new impressing factory and produced wrist- and pocket watches which were sold all over the world. All mechanical movements had been assembled in house and passed strict quality controls.
In workshops, more than 100 employees with a lot of professional know-how and feeling brought life into the small marvels. A network of outworkers in Grenchen supported the success of the enterprise.
All rough movements mainly had been provided by A. Schild Ltd. Movements such as AS 1250 with “hammer-winding”, and AS 1361 with “rotor-winding” bear witness to important technical innovations at that time.
The first launched waterproof watches had helped considerably to establish the brand name in Eastern Europe markets. The most famous movement was AS 1130 with small second hand. In the years of 50ies and 60ies more than 100’000 watches were yearly delivered in many countries all over the world.
