Updated on:

There are countless watch manufacturers all over the world. While Switzerland is the most well-known producer of watches, there are actually some companies that produce high-quality watches in Germany. That’s what I’ll be going over in this article.


Are There Any Brands Selling German Made Watches? (The Short Answer)

After lots of research, I found 3 companies that manufacture watches in Germany. They are Lange & Söhne, Stowa, and Sinn. I also found a couple of honorable mentions.

3 Manufacturers Producing Watches That Are Actually Made in Germany

Now that we have our German watch manufacturers, let’s look at each one in more detail.

Lange & Söhne

Lange & Söhne is a German watch manufacturer that dates back to 1845. Its headquarters is located in Glashuette, Germany, and according to numerous sources, the company’s manufacturing takes place at its facilities in Glashutte, Saxonia, Germany.

Over the years, the company has developed a reputation for being one of the best luxury watch manufacturers in Germany. Its products are highly sought after by affluent people all over the world.

For those wanting to take a look at what Lange & Söhne has to offer, here are a few of its timepieces for you to check out.


Stowa was founded in 1927 by Walter Storz. The company is based in Engelsbrand Germany and it manufactures all of its watches at its German manufacturing plant.

Its manufacturing facilities are located in Rheinfelden, Germany. I also reached out to the company directly and asked which of its watches are German-made. I received a response within seconds confirming that all of Stowa’s watches are made in Germany. So if you buy from Stowa, then you are buying a watch that was solely manufactured in Germany.

Stowa offers several lines of watches, here’s a link to its product page for those wanting a closer look.


Sinn was founded in 1961 by a German pilot and flight instructor. Fast forward to today and Sinn is a well-known manufacturer of high-quality mechanical and quartz wristwatches. It offers German-made wristwatches for men and women.

Sinn manufactures its watches at a company facility located in Frankfurt am Main. However, it does look like some of Sinn’s production is carried out in Switzerland. Luckily, the website has a page dedicated to its German-made watches.

The company offers some incredibly durable watches. In fact, some of Sinn’s timepieces are water-resistant up to a depth of 5000 meters! Here are a few of its watches for those wanting to take a closer look.

Honorable Mentions

I came across a company that does manufacture its watches in Germany. However, the majority if not all of its components come from Japan and Switzerland. While some companies on the list above do source some components from overseas they also get some parts from within Germany. I also came across another brand that may produce watches in Germany, although it’s not really clear. Here’s what I found.


Junkers is a German brand that was founded in 1895. There’s a bit of conflicting information about this company as several sources claim that the company went out of business in 1969, however, there are lots of other sources (including the company itself) that not only claim otherwise but actually sell Junkers watches. So, the company is very much still in business!

As for its manufacturing, all of its watches are manufactured in Germany. However, as mentioned above, I couldn’t find any information stating that any of its watches make use of components and materials sourced within Germany. Because of this, it didn’t quite make it onto the list above. Here are some links to Junkers’ watch product categories.


Braun was founded by Max Braun in Frankfurt, Germany in 1921. The company offers high-quality and more affordable timepieces when compared to some of the other companies in this article.

Braun has received numerous awards for its high-quality watches, this includes being the recipient of an iF Design Award in 2019 for its BN0265 watch. For more information on the company’s awards and accolades check this out.

There’s a lot of conflicting information out there regarding Braun’s watch manufacturing locations. Several sources state that its products are all made in Germany. However, according to customers and a handful of reputable third-party websites, its watches aren’t made in Germany.

It looks like its products are designed in Germany, but they are mostly made in China, and Malaysia, and some of its premium models may be made in Switzerland. Some of its models could also be made in Germany but finding concrete proof was almost impossible.

I’ve put some links below to the information I found. Feel free to check it out for yourself. If there are any readers who have any more information related to Braun’s manufacturing locations then let us know via the comment section below.

A Company That People Mistake as Being A German Manufacturer

I came across one company that on the surface seems to make its products in Germany. But, after digging a little deeper, it turns out that it actually sources all of its components from Switzerland.


Steinhart is an affordable luxury German watch brand. Its headquarters is located in Stadtbergen, Bayern, Germany.

After taking a closer look at Steinhart’s manufacturing, while its products are all assembled in Germany, its components come from Switzerland. In fact, it clearly states on its website that its watches are Swiss-made. So, despite being assembled in Germany, all of its components come from Switzerland.

I did also come across a handful of third-party articles that claim Steinhart’s manufacturing facilities are all located in Switzerland, but not only could I not verify this, but as you can see above, the company’s website clearly states that its products are assembled in Germany.

A Question For The Readers

I’m certain that there are other German watch manufacturers out there. However, most of the German-based companies I found seemed to manufacture their products in Switzerland.
