The MORTIMA watch label was owned by French company Cattin & Cie, which later migrated operations to Switzerland. MORTIMA was discontinued after the "quartz watch meltdown" in the early 1980s, but Cattin & Cie persists to create private label watches today. Their limited production makes these watches very rare & highly sought after!
