■ In 1924, Hermann Friedrich Bauer, goldsmith and supervisor, demonstrates entrepreneurial courage and drive and produces the first watch case and strap in gold supported by his sons Robert, Gustav and Eugen and a workforce of 3 employees.

■ In 1932 the first factory building is rented where 40 workers are employed and the production range is expanded. 

■ The first Bauer blanks are manufactured and a watch assembly line is set up.

■ Ruth Anneliese Bauer, daughter of Robert, takes up an apprenticeship in the company.

■ In May 1946 Edwin Walser enters the H. F. Bauer company and shortly after marries Ruth A. Bauer.

■ On the 25th anniversary of the company, exports are a substantial part of the business and in 1948 the company has 200 employees.

■ In 1974 Edwin Walser founds the Walser-Bauer KG company for precious metal semi-finished products, trading with precious metals and the production of dental alloys.

■ In 1999 the 75th anniversary of the H.F. Bauer company is celebrated together with the 25th anniversary of Walser-Bauer.

■ In 2004, the two companies merge to form the Bauer-Walser AG company.

■ Since the merger the focus of the company is once again clearly on the recycling of precious metal waste and the manufacture of high quality precious metal semifinished products for the jewellery and watchmaking industries.
