Although a much larger country than Switzerland, Germany isn’t always as closely associated with high quality watchmaking as its diminutive neighbor. And this is a shame, because it has a rich history of exquisite and innovative haute horlogerie, with towns such Pforzheim and Glashütte forming important centers of the industry. Major brands such as A. Lange & Sӧhne may be instantly recognisable to serious watch enthusiasts, but there are many less familiar names that are worth exploring. Let’s take a look at a few of Extropian’s favorites, some recent, others long-established, but all making great watches that you’ll definitely want to discover.
