EMERGENCE OF WANCHER
The origin of Wancher traces its journey back to the age of Gulf War back in the 1990’s when the president of the company, Taizo Okagaki was working on a research for ODA in Egypt. While working amidst the extreme conditions during this time, it was very hard for him to keep track of day. This was when he realized the true essence of time in life and slowly developed his keen interest in the time-piece we call watch. Soon he began his research on watches and vision of Wancher Watch emerged.
TIMEPIECE AS ESSENTIALS
WANCHER watches are designed in Japan by Wancher with the inspiration of military usage and initially created to serve the need of timekeeping in extreme conditions. In the past, it was significantly hard to find a watch that keeps ticking without being affected by the external environment. Wancher watches have the functionality of recognizing the time despite of extreme environments, underwater exploration or even while doing extreme sports.
REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENTS IN WATCH MAKING
For many years of research and development, Wancher watches finally achieved the Japan quality that meets the endurance of Military environments. Each collection has its wearability, operability, and functions depending on the depth of the water and the precision that ensures the sturdiness to adapt extreme sports actives on land or air. Wancher introduced diver’s watches from daily "WATER RESISTANT” (100m-500m) to saturation diving up to (1000m).
