Since 1850, Waltham, the legendary American brand has been setting modern standards for the production of clocks and watches, and has over one thousand patents in the sector. Waltham International SA (today; Waltham Watch Company SA) was purchased in late 2011 by Antonio DiBenedetto, the current President and CEO. With vast experience in the world of luxury and jewelry and a passion for timepieces, it is Antonio’s mission to deliver the Waltham brand back to its former glory and create high-tech, cutting-edge wrist watches that will “instill today's men with the courage to choose and dare to follow their convictions”. The same bravery that drove the innovative and unconventional spirits of the legendary men who, with a Waltham, were key figures in the greatest achievements of the past 160 years. Waltham Watch Company SA has established offices in Mendrisio, Milan and New York City. Strategic partnerships with top manufacturers in the industry and an R&D division based in Mendrisio/Ticino CH allow Waltham to launch its first brand-new collection of wristwatches inspired by its history in the Aeronaval sector.
