Since 1888, all Hebdomas watches have been entirely manufactured by hand, piece by piece. Hebdomas' high standard of quality is rooted in the experience of its highly skilled watch-makers. These famous time-pieces have been awarded several gold medals and distinctions during their long history.The name Hebdomas is linked to the Cycle of Seven and recalls the festivities of Ebdomee, held in Sparta, Croton and Mileto, which celebrated the birth of Apollo on the seventh day of the month. In ancient Lesbos, sung by poets, such festivities were dedicated to Dionisio, holding many superstitious rituals and beliefs which were linked to the seventh day of the month.The word Hebdomas, which is taken from the words Hebdomandaire, Ebdomadario, signifies that a watch should be wound up once a week... on the seventh day. This name is a reflection of one of the company's earliest and greatest achievements, the 8 day wrist watch.The 8 day wrist watch traces its roots back to the original Hebdomas watch by Schild S.A. The unique 8 day movement of this watch was developed and patented by Irene Aubry of Saignelegier (Switzerland), on the 14th November 1888. The watch, with its exposed balance wheel was a forerunner to automatic watches and was a highly successful line of watches in the early 1900's.Today's Hebdomas 8 day watches feature a 1930's era redesign of this classic movement that are NOS from the 1960's.Particular care has always been taken in the manufacturing of Hebdomas watches, each element is meticulously selected and tested, even down to the beautiful enamel dials that adorn each piece. The 8 day time-pieces are still capable of bringing back a certain nostalgia of olden times, and even though, through modern technology, improvements have been made, nothing has changed from the original concept and design.Today Hebdomas concentrates on producing a quality product at an excellent price. They offer the collector an opportunity to obtain rare and interesting complications of a quality and price unmatched by competitors. Hebdomas also offers the collector exclusivity as Hebdomas only manufactures approximately 1500 watches annually.Hebdomas watches speak for themselves. Need no introduction nor hassle.

Recommendations for the owner of vintage watches:- All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).- Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.- Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture.- If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust.- If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc.- Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard.- When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement.- If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours).- Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.- Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches.- If the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down.- To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth.- Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement.- Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.- Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good.
I look forward to trading positive responses!
