Custom-made in Hamburg: Hentschel Hamburg designs high-grade watches according to the well acknowledged Hanseatic chronometric tradition. In contrast to contemporary industrial mass production we still custom-design individual watches according to your individual taste.
For more than 200 years watch manufacturers from Hamburg have created chronometers for the sea-going captains of the city. As well known specialists for the construction of classic mechanical chronometers we are proud to keep up with this honorary tradition of the Hanseatic city of Hamburg.
All parts of a custom made Hentschel watch are made and developed in our manufactory or are manufactured exclusively for Hentschel Hamburg. We never use parts that are used by other watch brands or parts of the so called “private label range”. This is the subtle but significant difference. Due to the high level of in-house production depth we can guarantee the exclusiveness and the unique and distinct stylistic elements of Hentschel Hamburg. This gives you the certainty to wear a truly special watch.
In a time where most of the known watch brands belong to large corporate groups and produce their luxury watches on an industrial level it´s a statement to wear a custom made watch. “Handmade” and not “run of the mill” is an expression of awareness of values and character. The Hentschel Hamburg Manufactory is a family owned and independent business. We don´t see ourselves as just a “watch brand” but a handicraft enterprise.
For a short while our classics are now available with automatic movements for the price of the handwound versions.
