In many work steps, the filigree work and quiet hand of the watchmaker is needed. Pressing the tiny second hand on the arbor before checking the flat run of the hands, that they wont stuck somewhere.

Passion for the Watchmaker´s history and Design

Our value drivers

Handcraft

Inspired by Eugen Wegner’s craftsmanship and passion for accuracy and quality, our watches are designed and fully assembled in-house in our workshop in Hamburg.

For us, having control over every single step of the design, manufacturing and assembling phase is of utmost importance. We want to make sure that we truly know every single one of our limited-edition watches. Therefore, we work together with only a selected group of suppliers in Germany and Switzerland for sourcing of the components.

Moreover, and most important for us, the complete process of refinement of the movements, final assembly of every single watch and quality control is done in-house in our workshop in Hamburg.

Valence

Quality is our priority, we are working with carefully chosen materials and set highest standards in the manufacturing process.

We want every single watch to be perfect and just as valuable to you as it is to us.

History

  • 1897

    Already at a young age, Eugen Wegner, an award-winning young watchmaker from Germany, opens his first workshop in Gdansk. Eugen Wegner was the great-great-grandfather of today’s team. 

  • Early 1900s

    With the support of his wife Eugen Wegner manages to rapidly grow the business. The business flourishes and new workshops and stores are opened in several other Prussian cities. The main workshop is moved to a new location in the city center of Gdansk.

  • 1909

    Inspired by the achievements one of Gdansk’s most famous sons, Eugen Wegner decides to name his newest series of pocket watches after former councilor, mayor and, most important, astronomer Johannes Hevelius. The Hevelius pocket quickly becomes a bestseller. Its design is inspiration for our first new Eugen Wegner watch released in 2020 – EW.1.

  • 1920s

    After spending some time in South America and with fellow competitor WEMPE, Hans-Ulrich, Eugen Wegner’s first-born son, enters the business. With the expertise gained during previous ventures, he manages to successfully introduce the production and servicing of marine chronometers to the company’s portfolio. In these days high precision engineered and well-maintained chronometers are vital for Gdansk’s shipping industry and the dockyards located in the vicinity.

  • 1950s

    In the 1950s the company relocated to Western Germany. With a focus on the marine chronometer business, new workshops and offices were established in the major port cities – Hamburg, Duisburg and Lubeck.

  • 1960s

    However, under constant pressure resulting from turmoil and new developments in the watch industry and against the background of the overall economic environment, the company fails to resume previous growth and success. In the 1960s Hans-Ulrich, then in charge, decides to cease operations and close doors… Eugen Wegner watches and marine chronometers slowly vanish from the market.

  • 2017

    The idea to revive the old family business becomes concrete. Jonas, Eugen Wegner’s great-great-grandson teams up with a team of friends, designers and watchmakers. Together they start to develop the first new Eugen Wegner watch.

  • 2020

    After more than two years of research and development, the first new Eugen Wegner watches enter the market. Inspired by traditional design and historic watches and chronometers manufactured by his great-great-grandfather over a century ago, nowadays Eugen Wegner watches aim to combine heritage, adventure and curiosity. All watches are exclusively designed, developed and manufactured in our workshop in Hamburg.
