Albert Wittnauer came to America from Switzerland in 1872. He was 16 and already knew watchmaking. He joined his brother-in-law J. Eugene Robert’s watch importing business. Soon two of Wittnauer’s younger brothers and his sister arrived in New York, forming what became the Wittnauer company. Robert was already importing watches. Eventually they added a Wittnauer brand to their company’s lines.
