MWC was founded in 1974 by Wolfgang Obrigheimer, although he manufactured a limited number of watches in the mid-1960s and branded the movements Military Watch Company it was not until 1974 following a conversation with another famous watchmaker Albert Wajs of Ollech and Wajs who also lived in Zürich that he decided to run the business full time, Wolfgang ran the business at the time alongside two business partners both of whom had also previously worked in the horological industry, under Wolfgang's direction the company initially made hand wound mechanical watches progressing to quartz models in 1978, some models which we make today such as the MKIII, W10 and G10 battery hatch models trace their origins directly back to these early designs and are still visually very similar but with significant design improvements.
