Wenger watches from The Watch Hut
Wenger – one of the two companies behind the iconic Swiss Army – offers a unique range of Swiss designed and built watches. The company was founded over 100 years ago and began its diversification away from its tradition knife and cutlery business in the early 1990’s.
Since 1997, the pioneering manufacturer of one of the world’s best loved tools has been manufacturing a range of high-quality watches to meet the demands of explorers, mountaineers and pilots.
Available in a range of styles including standard and chronograph models, Wenger watches have brought their considerable skill in precision engineering, a traditional skill of the French speaking Jura region, to this range. The range also offers unique features not found anywhere else such as mission timing functions to allow pilots, particularly helicopter pilots to see at a glance how long they are able to remain airborne.
The company sponsors various extreme races such as the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race. This is an annual adventure race which takes place in the southern-most region of South America. Extremely physically and mentally challenging, the event test competitors to the limit on bike, kayak and foot as they traverse plains, mountains, glaciers, native forests, swampland, rivers, lakes and channels, guided only by their mind and spirit and driven on by their physical stamina and experience.
That Wenger watches have a real pedigree in their field is underlined by their Brand Ambassadors. In some situations the climbers and voyagers who sport Wenger watches literally trust the brand with their lives.
These include men such as professional mountaineer Ueli Steck who climbed the North face of the Matterhorn in under 2 hours and adventurer Mike Horn who has completed a man-powered circumnavigation of the Equator, A 2,000km/27-month solo circumnavigation of the Arctic Circle without motorized or dog transportation and a 6-month solo crossing of the South American continent, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean swimming the entire length of the Amazon.
Whether your challenge is climbing the Eiger or simply beating the rush to the morning train you can be sure that a watch from this range will amply satisfy your needs.
