Vollmer's real strength lies in the tools and machines of which watch band manufacturers in the Far East are envious. Vollmer's oldest sheet metal punch originates from the 1930s. No current machine is able to get the same kind of results. Because of this, that Vollmer also act as advisers for other designers who want to continuously realize new ideas in metal watch bracelets for their timepieces.
Vollmer specializes in the manufacture of Milanese mesh bracelets that are very popular today. A good mesh watch band can be recognized by its consistent and stable mesh, as well as its lack of sharp edges. It must be flexible in one direction and must softly envelop the wrist. It is also important that the mesh band is well adjustable, usually with the help of a folding clasp or removable links adjacent to it.
What catches the eye with the Milanese watch bands is their smooth and softly plaited structure. The name is derived from their place of origin, Milan. Stainless steel, titanium, or non-precious metals in thicknesses of 0.28 to 2 millimeters are used as raw material, supplied on approximately 20 cm high bobbins by wire companies and other suppliers.
Be assured, you are getting the highest quality when you invest in a Vollmer band for your timepiece.
