I've been doing some research on a Helbros watch given to me and thought I would post what information I've accumulated. Today Helbros is owned by Jules Jurgensen. They are the value/affordable line similar to the ESQ to Modovo relationship except they have had the relationship since 1913. Helbros made some watches themself but were much more of an assembler/marketer than a manufacturer. Because of contract manufacturing you can find vintage Helbos watches from Germany, Switzerland, and even a few from France. I know it's not much but I there isn't much out there.
