Aniceto Jiménez Pita assembly Pita Barcelona watchPita Barcelona is the watchAniceto Jiménez Pita create Pita Barcelona watch company, founded by Aniceto Jiménez Pita, an independent watchmaker, a talented person and a member of the AHCI (since 2004).  Pita has taken a great interest in the wrist watches from his early childhood . Pita was born  in 1947, in Oliva de Mérida, Spain.
Aniceto Jiménez Pita created his first watch in 1958, at the age of 11. Then he began to study the watch movements and the watch assembly, and in 1963-1971 he started repairing all types of watches. Later, he launched his own watch company and produced the first models, known as Pita Barcelona watches. The first boutique was opened in 1971 in Barcelona.
Every Pita's creation has its own appeal and is produced for the certain purpose - to present the masterpiece, distinguished not only by its charming design, but also by its excellent quality. In addition to the development and production of watches, the watchmaker taught the lessons at the watchmaking school in Spain. However, soon he decided to quit his teaching practice and to devote himself to the watch production and to concentrate on his work. In 1990, Pita developed the exclusive Pita-TSM movement, that was patented in 2003. The movement with the unique features workes without a crown and saves the watch parts, reducing their volume. Later, these unique movements were housed in the masterpieces of the Spanish watchmaker - Pita Carousel, Pita Minimal, Pita Oceana.
Pita CarouselIn 2004, the Pita-TSM movement was Pita Minimalpresented at the International Salon of Inventions in Geneva (Salon International des Inventions in Geneva), where the talented watchmaker was awarded the silver medal. In 2005, Pete presented his own unique models - Pita Carousel, Pita Minimal and Pita Sol y Luna, at the Baselshow 2005. Then the original Pita Barcelona watches were shown at many international exhibitions, that helped the master to achieve fame and popularity.
Every model of this watch brand is unique. The watch originality lies not only in the design, but also in the absence of the crown.
