A DAVOSA watch is instilled with more than 150 years of finest watchmaking history, even though the birth year of the DAVOSA name was in fact 1993. This was the year in which the Swiss Hasler family joined forces with Friedrich-Wilhelm Bohle, a German entrepreneur who had been a successful watch distributor since the 1960s.
It was a meeting of like minds from the start: both Friedrich-Wilhelm Bohle and his Swiss business partners were passionate about mechanical watches. By the late twentieth century the watch market had long been dominated by the quartz movement, so it was high time for a mechanical watch renaissance. Their fruitful cooperation resulted in a small and select collection of mechanical watches that was issued under the new brand name: DAVOSA.
The collection was an instant success, acclaimed by customers, retailers and the trade press alike. Subsequent collections went on to write their own chapter of the brand’s success story.
