Wyler is definitively not what we call a “hot” brand in today’s vintage market.
Having said that, Wyler is not a brand without any interest ! Ok, they don’t have dozens of high end chronograph or famous actors wearing their watches but they developed two revolutionaries innovations back in the 20’s and 30’s which deserve some attention.
Quickly after its creation by Paul Wyler, they presented their first watch in 1926 with a very innovative shock protected balance wheel: the incaflex.
The revolutionary design of this balance wheel stands in two “elastic” arms protecting it against shocks. Like big names of that period, Wyler produced its own calibers but also used calibers from large-scale suppliers like Valjoux. However, those movements were more or less heavily modified, especially by changing the balance wheel for the famous incaflex.
