The only manufacturer of Czech PRIM wristwatches
ELTON hodinářská is the only domestic manufacturer of PRIM mechanical wristwatches. It is only in Nové Město nad Metují that you find the complete production of wristwatches, including movements, in the Czech Republic. We regularly provide our customers and those interested in watchmaking with an insight into the operation of our factory as part of our annual Open Day. You can also take a small tour of our operations on our website.
The mechanical watches in our highest model series - PRIM Manufacture 1949 - have a movement of our own design. This movement consists of approximately 140 parts, of which more than 90% are produced directly on-site. Using a demanding machining method that guarantees exceptional quality, we produce cases for all our watches, including the PRIM Automatic and PRIM model series with mechanical and Swiss quartz movements.
