BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WITTNAUER COMPANY:

In 1880, the beginnings of the Albert Wittnauer Company seem almost like a fairy tale, the quintessential immigrant's dream come true in a time of war and poverty. A young man from from a far off land with a dream that he would eventually have his name of the dashboards of pilots and pioneers & on the wrists of actors and astronauts. This dream would continue even after his death as his sister, Martha became the first female CEO of a watch manufacturer, took the reins of the company in the midst of the worst economic depression America had ever seen. She was a homemaker with no business or manufacturing experience what so ever. In 1936 the Wittnauer partnered with the Longine Company to continue making high quality watches well into the 20th century. In 1994, Bulova purchased Wittnauer for 11.6 million dollars.
