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.

THE HISTORY OF OLMA DEMONSTRATES THE OLMA WAS MARKETED IN EUROPE AND ASIA. NOT MANY WERE SOLD IN THE USA IF YOU STUDY OLMA YOU WILL NOTICE THAT OLMA MOVEMENTS BEARING A USA MANUFACTURERS IMPORT (THREE LETTERS ) MARK. THIS OLMA ORIGINATED IN GERMANY AND WAS BROUGHT BACK TO THE USA BY A WWII VETEREN
