    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    wyler used AS or ETA movements. they developed a balance wheel with flexible arms to absorb shocks- the incaflex. they had good cases and are a solid medium quality brand.

    Thanks. I think mine are older than this one. They are also antimagnetic and waterproof (and SS). The larger one has a beautiful pie-pan dial.

    Wyler became known as the inventor of the INCAFLEX - an inhouse balance wheel with flexible arms.
    Here´s a Wyler out of the good old times with Incaflex I am happy to own:



    Mine is fitted with an ETA 1220.

    Wyler never left the stage, for a long time it was Wyler-Vetta and since this year it was re-launched as "Wyler Geneve". And Wyler dates back to 1896. Wyler of our days belongs to the italian Binda Group. They exhibited at Baselworld but I haven´t had enough time to visit their booth.
    CEO Marc Bernhardt worked for Bertolucci and was Executive Sales Director of IWC.

    Re: Wyler Incaflex

    wyler-vetta came into being because wyler wanted to do business in italy. under italian law at the time, a foriegn company had to be partnered with a domestic company in order to do business there. i'm not sure at what point vetta acquired wyler or whether they actually did. perhaps the name name could exist in italy even after wyler went out of business?

    wyler was one the first watches i collected extensively. most in my collection were of a one-piece case design.

    Both of mine are "waterproof" and feature one piece cases. The caseback appear to be welded on or something of that nature!

    The larger one is a mens watch and I think the smaller one (an exact copy of the larger one but smaller) is a ladies watch.
