Relo Design was founded by Rainer Lutz and Renate Lay in 1969. Operating from Renens near Lausanne in Switzerland, the company was sold in 1972 to Höfflin & Lüth, Pforzheim, Germany, who established the relo-design inc. in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Due to financial difficulties the company closed down business only a few years later at the end of the 1970s.

Relo design was famous for their award-winning watches designed by Carl Elsener and Hans Stalder.

The women’s bangle watch with a manual wind is a rare example of the watch production of relo, displaying an innovative design in brushed silver combined with a solid workmanship and Swiss precision.
The Swiss clockwork functions precisely, it has to be wind up twice a day.
