About St. Moritz Watch Company

The Momentum Watch Company commenced operations in North America in 1980. From the outset, they specialized in high quality sports watches, producing their own designs and also acting as agents for some well-known Swiss brands. (e.g. “Breitling” and “Revue Thommen”). Momentum developed a strong OEM clientele, designing, manufacturing and servicing durable watches for a number of prestige clients under their own brands. Momentum clients include some of the most prestigious sports chains, catalog companies and automobile manufacturers in the world.

The Momentum watch collection expanded slowly but steadily, based on their reputation for providing customers with unparalleled value for money. Nobody is tougher on watches than SCUBA divers, so it is no coincidence that Momentum has become particularly well known as a manufacturer of high quality divers’ and watersports watches.

By the early 1990’s, Momentum decided to focus on their own Momentum® brands, and gradually relinquished agencies for other watch lines. They have become market leaders in the specialty SCUBA market segment, with an unmatched selection of different models, technologies and price-points. Momentum's expertise in waterproof watches has also allowed them to expand rapidly into specialty sports, outdoor and paddle stores, with an emphasis on functional, legible watches that are built to last.

While the movements in Momentum watches come either from Switzerland or Japan, they source components for their watches from all over the world. It is not unusual to find one of their models using a Swiss movement, a Japanese steel case and a deluxe band from Italy. Their goal is always to provide the best quality and value, sourcing each part that goes into their watches directly from the source, to deliver the maximum “bang for the buck”.

Today, with offices, warehouse facilities and Service Centers in both Canada and the USA, Momentum continues to build their reputation for value, quality and service. Momentum worldwide sales are expanding, with a steady increase in new dealers, distributors and service points around the globe. The Momentum company is a founder member of DEMA (the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association) and a member of the Outdoor Industries Association.

Momentum continues to strive to put the best into their products, spending extra time on the smallest details, so that their watches will truly be “a little out of the ordinary”…. If you already wear a Momentum® or St. Moritz watch, we hope the energy and passion they put into each product they make will make itself felt!
