As frequent readers already know Eugen Wegner‘s great-great grandson has embarked on the adventure of reviving the old Eugen Wegner brand which has been dormant for about 50 years.
Based on historic models designed by his famous ancestor over a hundred years ago, the first new Eugen Wegner watch is set to enter the market this summer (kickstarter). The WatchUSeek Team met with the four young entrepreneurs, strong-willed to set up a watch company, at Baselworld and in Berlin.
The first Eugen Wegener will be a Marine watch housing a mechanical movement with small second at 6 o‘clock. You will get an idea when looking at their landing page www.eugenwegner.com.
Before the launch there‘s a lot to do, but staff currently is assembling the first models in their Hamburg workshop they moved into in April 2019.
Jonas Bley sent me a first shot of the dial which has been made during the assembling of the forst small batch of watches some days ago.
