Did you know that, in theory, a mechanical automatic winding watch will run forever? Without a battery or charging, simply by wearing it on your wrist each day?
The mechanical watches that we have been manufacturing in our workshops along the Rhine since 1868 are complex precision instruments. The countless tiny parts, some of which are subjected to extreme pressures and operate continuously, are assembled in the smallest of spaces. Our watches don’t just tell the time; they also have many additional functionalities, known as intricacies: such as the stopwatch, the moon phase display, and the mechanically programmed perpetual calendar.
Do you share our passion for watchmaking?
Our apprenticeship programs are aimed at enthusiastic young people who want to shape their future with practical passion. During your apprenticeship, you will gain extensive professional expertise.
