The willer brand is growing. The name vetta will be added only on the peninsula during the dictatorial reign of mussolini.Indeed, at that time, no mark with a foreign name could be marketed in italia. Thus was born wyler vetta. If the first documents signed wyler date back to 1896, it was only in 1924 that the paul wyler & co company was founded. The Basel watchmaker would soon have made a useful point, notably through the invention and the filing of a patent on a particularly robust balance, the incaflex. Paul wyler entered the history books in 1927 when he launched a balance that would become a standard in the watch industry.
The incaflex balance was the elegant solution he had found to the problem of absorbing the shocks suffered by the balance, which has the advantage of improving the daily reliability of the watch. It is as simple as it is great: the pendulum, made in a single piece of metal, has two flexible, symmetrical, semi-spiral arms that join at the axis and act as shock absorbers (see the picture of the balance of this historic watch). The mark was also distinguished by its pronounced meaning of the communication. Players of the football italie team wore a role model when they became world champions in 1934. At the time, it was allowed..
in order to clearly demonstrate the benefits of the wyler revolution on such a small and nevertheless crucial watch component, a simple demonstration was organized in 1956. Realizing what is not yet called an advertising coup, we launch two incaflex wiler watches at a height of 300 meters from the top of the eiffel tower. The judicial officer responsible for controlling this bold initiative confirms that the two watches are in excellent working condition after their abrupt landing. The evidence is that the incaflex wyler balance represents a major step forward in the watch industry. In 1962, a large crowd rushed for a similar test.It is the seattle tower, in the state of Washington, in the United States, which serves as a decoration for the release of six incaflex wiler watches with a height of 318 feet (approximately 97 meters). Again, a bailiff confirms that the functions of the watch did not suffer from the fall. Legend has it that, in addition to these media hits, the wiler sellers did not hesitate to drop their watches in front of customers to prove their shock resistance properties.
