About Tressa

Tressa was a small Swiss watch manufacturer that was in business from 1966 to 1986, where it filed for bankruptcy during the Quartz Crisis and was later bought out by the luxury watch brand Rado Ltd. Tressa was best known for its ‘Spaceman’ and ‘Lux’ lines of watches, the latter of which often had unusual faceted crystals with technicolour dials. They did not manufacture their own movements, typically their watches had ETA or Anton Schild movements powering them, both very reliable mechanisms.
