Paul Wermot founded the Swiss watch manufacture on the 23rd of August 1935. The ability of the watchmaker for precision and his passion for mechanics brought the company success and a growing clientele. Mondia was also able to establish its position on the European market, since the continuous development of the models, the use of quality materials and a progressive production made the company very attractive – especially for Italian customers, with which many designs were adjusted. The company grew and grew until Mondia became part of Zenith in 1970 and lastly merged into the holding company Mondia-Zenith-Movado.
