History of the Urwerk

History of the Urwerk 23 April 2023

Urwerk was founded in 1997 by two designers, Felix Baumgartner and Martin Friedrich, with one goal: to create top class watches, combining the traditions of the past with a vision of the future.

The name Urwerk does not come from Switzerland, but from the city of Ur in Mesopotamia, the place where the idea of time was formed by the two designers

“Werk” in German means work, creativity, evolution, form, forge and the ability to evoke emotions.

Despite its relatively young age, the brand has already established a reputation as one of the leading manufacturers of innovative timepieces.

Many talented and famous personalities share the values and approach of the brand
