Titus is a Swiss watch brand that was founded in 1884 by Paul Ditisheim. The company was known for producing high-quality timepieces that were popular among collectors and watch enthusiasts. In the early 20th century, Titus gained a reputation for producing watches with innovative design features, which were some of the first watches to feature automatic winding mechanisms. In the 1960s, the company began to focus more on producing affordable, mass-market watches, and by the 1970s, Titus had become one of the largest watch manufacturers in Switzerland. In the 1980s, the company faced financial difficulties and was eventually forced to declare bankruptcy. Today, the Titus brand is no longer in operation.
