The Wenger company was founded in 1893 in Courtételle, a small village in the Swiss Jura near Delémont.
Although the brand manufactures many products, it is the manufacture of knives, particularly pocket knives, that has made it a success. Indeed, Wenger began to produce and deliver knives for the army in 1901. These famous Swiss Army knives are equipped with a blade, a screwdriver, a can opener and a punch.
In 1997, the range was extended to include watches and then luggage.
In 2005, the company was bought by Victorinox, its direct competitor. Despite the takeover, the 2 companies continue to exist almost autonomously. At the beginning of 2014, the company stops its production of Swiss knives under its brand, to focus on the manufacture of watches and luggage.
Since 1989, Wenger has been manufacturing its watches in the heart of Switzerland. Each of their pieces is designed and assembled to achieve the perfect balance between elegance and performance. Their models are elegant yet rugged watches offered at an excellent value.
