We reinvent the crown every day

Time never stands still, as watchmakers very well know. Numerous inventions have inspired the development of timepieces since Christian Huygens presented the first movement with a balance wheel and hairspring in 1675. MECO contributed to this evolution as well by patenting the first internally threaded screw-down crown and a valve integrated in the watch case. These were two milestones in the history of water-resistant watches. Thus, innovation is a part of our daily business. But we remain committed to those artisanal talents that still constitute the cornerstone of our existence. The legendary quality for which MECO stands originates from this fusion of tradition and innovation.
