Bernhard H. Mayer | 150 years of craftsmanship


Founded in 1871 in Pforzheim, Germany, by Bernhard H. Mayer, the eponymous brand is celebrating its 150th anniversary and paying tribute to its origins with the launch of two limited-edition timepieces.

Formerly specialised in precious metal engraving, the brand now based in Biel/Bienne began making watches in the 1980s. Presented last May, the anniversary collection features a personalised commemorative medal on its dial, echoing its numismatic roots.

Available in two versions, pink gold-plated steel and stainless steel, the special edition is inspired by the great classics of Geneva watchmaking and radiates a strong personality expressed through every detail and curve. The medal set at 3 o’clock represents the historical Mayer factory in Pforzheim. The transparent caseback reveals the Swiss self-winding movement and the oscillating weight stamped with the “150th anniversary” logo.
