Here are three of Sabine Zwettler’s highlights premiering at the Inhorgenta 2022 watch fair in Munich, each of which comes from a German brand and each of which will do anything but break the bank.
In case you need a reason for watch shopping (Sabine Zwettler sure doesn’t), here are five wallet-friendly suggestions that might just represent the ultimate wish list for her.
Tutima and luxury leather goods company Esquivel have collaborated on a timepiece set in which they opted to use a restrained patina for the leathers, which are embellished with a hand-etched compass rose.

Watch- and clockmaking has a long history in Germany, as evidenced by the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century timepieces from the Nuremberg/Augsburg area and the academic discussions of Peter Henlein, who is said to have made the world’s first pocket watch around 1505.

I clearly remember watching the history-altering events on television on November 9, 1989: the day that the Berlin Wall came tumbling down. Since then, watchmaking in Germany, just like the country as a whole, has undergone a lot of change, including the rebirth of Glashütte’s horological industry.
