RECTA, founded in 1897 originally manufactured chronographs. This precision based activity was the foundation of the skills required to design and manufacture the first compass in a pocket watch housing in 1914.
The reputation of RECTA has been built around the skills required to design manufacture precision instruments for use around the world.
The Swiss tradition of accuracy is not a legend, it’s a fact. RECTA is proud of its contribution through its factory in Biel, the capital of the watch and micro-mechanics industries. All the components of a RECTA compass are designed, manufactured and assembled in the Biel factory by highly qualified and skilled personnel. The dynamic Research and Development department enables RECTA to remain a leader in its field. The "Global System", which enables one compass to be used world-wide is a perfect example.
