They determine the pace of our everyday life – and they are omnipresent: industrial mass production transformed timepieces from unaffordable luxury goods into affordable consumer goods. Nevertheless, sophisticated Swiss automatic watches of premium hand-crafted quality such as the Bernhard H. Mayer® Depuis 1871, the Nauticus or Chronos Rose Gold have remained a dream for many that they would like to enjoy once in their lifetimes.

Genuine watchmaking represents everlasting value, which is still appreciated and recognised today: as one of the arts since its beginnings in the 16th century, it is still thriving and benefiting from the knowledge of the best in the profession. As a watchmaking dynasty brand with a history that goes back five generations, today Bernhard H. Mayer® combines tradition and modern zeitgeist to make the perfect design.

The Pforzheim-based engraver Bernhard H. Mayer laid the foundation for this in 1871 – the year in which Wilhelm I was crowned German Emperor in Versailles. At that time, distances were still covered by horse and carriage, and five more years were to pass before the telephone could be used for the first time. And while the world has changed completely during this almost 150-year history, this demand for quality and craftsmanship has remained unchanged to this day.

Bernhard H. Mayer® watches are timepieces for connoisseurs and enthusiasts, the high quality of which makes them ideally suitable for everyday use, robust and representative: with their unmistakable design, finely tuned, durable mechanisms, hand-polished surfaces made of high-quality surgical steel with elements made of precious metal and cambered quartz glass, they occupy a firm place in the high-quality luxury watch segment.
