Over 30 years ago Helmut Mayr, from Andechs in Stanberg, Bavarian (renowned for its pilgrimage Abbey and brewery), set out to enrich the clock market, which was – and still is, dominated by mass-produced clocks from manufacturers focused on cheap production. He did this by embracing traditional manufacturing techniques, making a return to the days of master clock makers, with craftsmen utilising the highest quality components and cases.
The company today – Helmut Mayr Uhren GmbH, is located in Schramberg in the Black Forest, and is wholly committed to this philosophy. At this new location, which was once a centre of watch production, they design, develop and manufacture a range of high quality mechanical timepieces. Their modern regulators are cable driven, with ruby and miniature ball bearings, these precision manufactured components guarantee a high degree of reliability and longevity; consequently producing a sustainable product that fits more than ever in our time – classic products for 21st century living, which are likely to become a much loved future family heirloom.
