Titoni

Titoni watchIn the year 1851, the watch-making industry was introduced to the small city of Grenchen Switzerland. Many famous watch companies were founded here and have helped make Grenchen an important part of today’s Swiss watch business.

Titoni was founded by Fritz Schluep in 1919 in Grenchen and the company is still in the hands of the Schluep family. Titoni is one of the few remaining independent watch enterprises and has made a significant contribution to the history of watchmaking.

Today, the Titoni Company is in it’s third generation of family ownership. New to the US market, Titoni has successfully concentrated on the far east and near east markets for over 50 years. Titoni has been able to gain the trust of customers in Asia where the products have always enjoyed a high reputation for excellent quality.
While many watch brands have focused over the last twenty-five years on quartz watches, Titoni has continued in the niche it has always occupied: watches equipped with self-winding mechanical movements. All Titoni watch components have to fulfill rigorous quality standards. The components for automatic movements, such as jeweled lever escapements, main springs, jewel shock absorbers, etc., are individually selected. This assures the best possible quality in contrast to other watch companies who buy complete movements. The assembly and integration of movements, as well as finishing and final control of the complete watches are exclusively handled at the Titoni factory in Switzerland.

Standard Titoni quality features include sapphire crystals, water resistance from 30 meters up to 200 meter, solid bracelets, buckles with two push-pieces and the stones on the dials are individually set, not glued. The modern Titoni factory makes effective use of best-in-class manufacturing technology including extensive automation. Still, it is the high proportion of skilled handwork in every mechanical watch that makes it an exceptional timepiece of lasting value.

"Titoni is one of the few remaining independent watch enterprises and has made a significant contribution to the history of watchmaking."


Titoni is best known for their "Mechanical Watches", they made top quality products in a medium price range. They are also known for Swiss watch making tradition.
