Collectors Auguste Raymond -ARSA NEKER Tramelan Swiss made Calatrava gent's wrist watch of 1960's.
History and importance of the watch:
The 27-year-old Auguste Reymond rented 1898 an apartment in Tramelan and began to manufacture a handful of watches with some watchmakers. From 1906, the company was renamed Auguste Reymond SA (or: ARSA). 1910, the company had grown into a manufacture with more than 100 employees and own buildings.
1926, the watch factory Unitas Watch Co. (Tramelan) was purchased and the factory building was specially converted for ebauche production. Unitas in 1932 joined the Ebauches SA, which later became the ASUAG and in 1980 attached itself to the SMH Group.
In the early 1950s the Auguste Reymond brand was known by two product lines: the digital watches with "jumping hour" and the "Braille watches" for the visually impaired. To date, Auguste Reymond has remained famous for its Braille watches, which continue to be marketed under the old brand ARSA. This particular is somekind of exception with generically correct Calatrava design and probably and most importantly the inhouse movement of the watch itself. We could not find the manufacturer stamp and due to uniqueness watchmaker called it probably inhouse.
