Urwerk
Horology | Urwerk, Watch Manufacturer, Swiss Heritage

Felix Baumgartner (co-founder and master watchmaker) and Martin Frei (co-founder and chief designer) first met in 1995 to discuss developing a watch. The young men were united by their common passion for measuring and portraying time. A long discussion, a sharing of philosophies and dreams, culminated in a decision to create their own vision of time.

They founded Urwerk in 1997 and presented their first timepiece with the AHCI at Baselworld that same year. Urwerk's original approach to watchmaking has both shaken traditionalists and won the respect of collectors.

Split between Geneva and Zurich, Urwerk is a byword for creative efficiency and efficient creativity, thanks to the blend of rigorous Swiss German watchmaking culture and Swiss French traditional watchmaking culture.

The Urwerk team are united with the common goal of horological excellence.
