About the Brand:
HISTORY OF CAMY WATCHES:
CAMY, was founded in Grenchen in 1913.
The company seems to be something of an enigma, despite producing watches for over 60 years, there is very little information about their history.
Their major claim to fame seems to be that Raymond Weil worked there for 27 years before leaving to start his own company in 1976. Watches made during the Raymond Weil era are marked Camy Geneve.
There are however lots of Camy watches still around, and like a lot of watch companies, they produced their most interesting models during the 1970′s
