The company «H. Moebius und Sohn» was founded in Hanover (Germany) over 150 years ago by watchmaker Hermann Moebius who first recognized the exceptional properties of neatsfoot oil for clock lubrication. Moebius has since become known all over the world as a leading producer of oils, greases and epilames for micromechanical applications and in particular for watch movements.
In 2008 the company was taken over by Swatch Group and integrated as an independent division of Swatch Group Research and Development. Now located in new laboratories in Itingen (Switzerland), the Moebius Division is fully prepared to meet the challenges of the future.
Moebius currently specializes in the production and commercialization of lubricants and epilames, used primarily for watchmaking applications. To guarantee the long-term control and evolution in Switzerland of these high quality products of primary importance for watchmaking and fine mechanics, Moebius is also working in close collaboration with academic partners for process optimization. In order to maintain and increase its technological edge and to be able to offer higher-performance products for watchmaking in the future, Moebius has implemented a strategy rooted in innovation, based on developments in partnership with the Asulab division and well-known university institutes.
