Marathon Watches

The Weinsturm Watch company, afterwards became the watch brand Marathon, was established in 1904 and renamed in Wein Brothers. In 1939, Morris Wein, a talented descendant of Wein, settled down in Montreal, where the company started working under the name Marathon Watch and providing its durable and solid models of wristwatches at the territory of North America. From 1941 the brand collaborated with the Allied Forces and produced timepieces complicated with a chronograph function. Today the Marathon’s tradition continues with its fourth generation and manufactures high-quality innovative instruments measuring time, temperature and distance. The company widened its field of production and opened its subsidiary factories in Switzerland, Canada and the USA.
