BRIEF HISTORY OF WYLER WATCHES
Paul Wyler was born on 15th June 1896 and established the Wyler Watch company in Basel on 28th March 1924 in Basel. Among Wyler’s biggest customers was Innocente Binda, an Italian entrepreneur whose family business has grown into one of today’s big watchmaking groups, the Binda Group. Based in Milan, Italy, the Binda Group is the parent company of Wyler Genève.
Throughout its history, the Wyler watch company has upheld a commitment to producing innovative, yet reliable and sturdy timepieces in continuation of its founder’s original mission.
The unbreakable Incaflex balance wheel was one of Paul Wyler’s most significant innovations and was incorporated in the 2007 Wyler Genève chronograph as a link with the brand’s heritage.
The design is as simple as it is brilliant: the balance wheel, made out of a single piece of metal, had two flexible symmetrical half-spiral arms that joined at the wheel’s axis and acted as shock absorbers.
Wyler’s dedication to improving the quality and accuracy of his timepieces earned him nine patents for balances with flexible arms, two and three-piece watch cases and other innovations.
Performing to extremes
Italy’s 1934 World Cup football team were among the first to discover the benefits of Wyler Incaflex timepieces, as the watches added a sporty finishing touch to the official attire for their campaign. It was a proud moment for Paul Wyler to see his watches worn by the team that raised the first-ever World Cup trophy won by their country.
In order to clearly demonstrate the benefits of Wyler’s revolution for such a small but crucial component in a watch, a simple demonstration was organised in 1956. In an early form of publicity stunt, two Wyler Incaflex timepieces were dropped 300 metres (almost 1000 feet) from the top of the Eiffel Tower. The notary public chronicling this audacious event confirmed that both timepieces were in excellent working order even after their harsh landing. This was a clear indication that the Wyler Incaflex balance wheel represented a major breakthrough in the watch industry.
