SWC Logo
"After leaving the Swatch Group to start his own company, Stephen Roemer, having grown up among the heritage of Swiss watches, wanted to have that heritage known within his company name. He came up with the name “Swiss Watch Company” and submitted it to the Swiss Government. It just so happened that there was a time span of about a year and a half where “Swiss” was acceptable to use in the name of a watch company. It was within this time gap that he submitted “Swiss Watch Company” and it was accepted by the government. After its acceptance, the use of “Swiss” was no longer permitted and Swiss Watch Company is the only watch company licensed in Switzerland with Swiss in its name. Swiss Watch Company (SWC) was founded in 1996 by Stephen and got its start through making watches for the armed forces and first responders. We produced watches for these organisations until 2008, which is where we began facilitating manufacturing for other watch brands. To this day, we still handle the manufacturing for many reputable brands, but our real goal was always to create our own line of watches. In 2018 we launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for our SWC diver and have since delivered watches to many happy customers all over the world."

    This watch looks amazing, but so does the Bunker watch. In your opinion which one would be a better “beater”, everyday – adventure watch? Ark with quartz or Bunker with an automatic movement?
