"Helbros watches was founded by the Helbein brothers in 1913. The company registered a trademark registered in New York in 1916 and in Geneva in 1918, which is why it is believed by many to have been founded in 1918.
In the US, Helbein used all the mediums available to him to sell watches. He used print advertising, radio advertising, and later TV advertising. He distributed watches through catalogs, shops, dealers, approval, and any other way he and his company could find. Helbros made watches for any taste, and pretty much any pocket.
At its height, Helbros was a major US watch company, and Helbein was an important figure. Helbein was the first chair of the American Watch Assemblers Association, and was a Director of the American Watch Association. When he died at the age of 70 in his home in Park Lane, he left a successful company. Perhaps in recognition of the challenges of his early life, a memorial scholarship was established in his name at Brandeis University." Read more about the history of the brandhere.
About mechanical watches
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
