MWC was founded in 1974 by Wolfgang Obrigheimer - although he manufactured a limited number of watches in the mid-'60s. Wolfgang continues to be involved with the company and still assists with some design concepts and although he is now in his 80s and enjoying his partial retirement his interest in watches remains undiminished.
Our main design office, accounts, and contract sales staff are still based in Zürich, Switzerland where the company began and Wolfgang's son Michael plays a leading role in the day to day operation of the company. Over the last 15 years, we have established offices, service and distribution facilities in several other countries with manufacturing facilities both in Switzerland and Germany.
From a retail perspective, MWC operates in a wide variety of locations worldwide through a network of distributors and retail outlets in 36 locations including the EU, UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and many other countries.
