Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex company, established his watch company in London in 1905. He was in need of a supplier who could make miniaturized movements for wristwatches. Consequently, he turned to the Aegler family movement makers based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, who specialized in small mechanical movements. In 1913 Aegler registered Rolex as a trademark for the manufacture of watches and watch parts. In 1919 a new company was incorporated in Geneva by Wilsdorf & Davis as Montres Rolex SA. Its manufactory was listed as "Manufacture des Montres Rolex, Aegler S.A." Aegler manufactured movements in its ébauche factory in the Rebberg district of Bienne, and as a consequence of this Rebberg was a registered as a trade mark by Aegler, hence these movements are often referred to as "Rebberg" movements.
