The history of the Sicura watch brand

The history of the Sicura watch brand

For those who are unaware of it, Breitling went under in 1979. Sicura purchased the rights to the brand like just as the Jenny family did with Doxa and the lalo did with Inflicta. Sicura rebranded their own watches as Breitling even copying the logo.


Sicura is one of the most important brands in the world of large, vintage and affordable watches.

Sicura originated from a company called "Joh. Gobber, Horlogerie" established in 1939. And then supposedly in 1951 the company was listed as "Sicura, Joh. Gobber" and finally the 2 May 1955 the company can be found in the Swiss Handelsregister as "Montres Sicura SA".
