In 1906, Olma S.A. WATCH COMPANY was born.
By 1915, OLMA had developed distributors in Europe.
By 1930 OLMA had began expanding throughout the
South & Far East Asia.
OLMA took advantage of these war years to design watches with double & triple color dials, hash second and sub-second chapter rings, 24 hour markers/numbers and maintained a keen eye towards quality movements with solid steel water tight cases, thick plastic crystals with pressed bezels and an added anti dust and magnetic inner shield.
These models were a hit for those military personal whom came across them.
By 1950, OLMA had developed a small yet dedicated distribution network in Europe, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Nepal, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Korea.
THIS OLMA WAS ORIGINALLY PURCHASED IN KOREA DURING THE KOREAN WAR ....
