Société Suisse pour l’ Industrie Horlogere
Société Suisse pour l’ Industrie Horlogere also known as SSIH is known to have been the second largest and one of the most important Swiss Watch Groups. SSIH was established on 24 February 1930 in Geneva by Tissot and Omega and in 1932 they were jointly by Lemania Watch Co. as well as A. Lugrin Co. in L ‘ Orient ( Vallée de Joux ) , who had specialized in the production of more complicated watches. The merged of the 1932 was made to ensure Omega the position as official ” timekeeper ” at the Olympics summer 1932 in Los Angeles. A strategically move that later showed to have been an important step in the development of Omega Sport Watch segment. A partnership that decades later led to the development of the famous Omega Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch.
Value for money
The companies merge of Tissot & Omega in 1930 lead to a period in watch Horology and represents the period where the two companies produces their most revolutionary watches all produced in house. In late 1950’s Tissot meet ultimate consequence of the company merge with Omega in 1930 as it was decided that Tissot position as a high-end brand had to seen an end. The conclusion was a result of the fact that there was no room for internal competition as it was decided that Omega from that day on should be produced and address to a high-end consumer segment, while Tissot new mission was to focus on the midrange segment. For decades to come the SSIH watch group decided to produce and direct Omega & Tissot watches to different costumer segments. The marketing strategy meant that Omega & Tissot watches was sold a very different prices, thus the fact the many of their watches from ca. 1930-1957 was produced under the same principles, from the same materials, have the same base constructions.
In 1983 SSIH and Allgemeine Gesellschaft der Schweizerischer Uhrenindustrie AG ( ASUAG ) Watch Group was forced to merge with their Swiss banks and hence, a single holding company, Société de Microélectronique et d’ Horlogerie ( SMH ) , which later was renamed Swatch Group .
