5 Non-Swiss Watchmakers Worth the $$$$

Postby koimaster » October 17th 2018, 9:04am

When you start talking about high-end watches, the word "Swiss" often ends up getting substituted in for phrases like "high-quality" and "reliable." But it doesn't have to be that way. Sure, Switzerland is the modern home of fine watchmaking, but there are plenty of fantastic watchmakers creating timepieces worth your attention in other places. We had our editors round up five of their favorite watchmakers that reside outside the Confederation, highlighting different types of watches and different approaches to watchmaking in general. And best of all? No passport required.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

I rate zee Germans highly and in no particular order, I'd happily wear any of these brands... Stowa, Muhle Glasshutte and Sinn.

That reminds me, I must pick up a Sinn U2 or a Muhle Glasshutte Seebataillon GMT at some point!
