When I first started surveying in 1976, my then employer Harry Arrowsmith told me that if you want quality get a Wild theodolite or level. They are the Rolls Royce of surveying equipment. Over 40 years later I still hear those words like yesterday.
I decided I would follow his advice and started to collect the instruments. It has grown to its current state and decided to make a website to show the collection to people that love Swiss engineering. It has become a passion, others may say an addiction. In time I will take better and more photos, add the specifications and other details of the instruments.
I also have various manuals and publications that i will scan and place on the website.
I have to thank Guy Paone in the Netherlands for his help in sourcing and repair of instruments. Juerg Dedual for information on the instruments via his website Wild-Heerbrugg.com. and Ron De Marco for his many donations and advice on the equipment.
