We are celebrating 150 years of Bernhard H. Mayer® this year by looking back on its legacy. After all, an exquisitely crafted timepiece is more than just an instrument for telling time. Through its association with its maker, it becomes more than just the sum of its parts and its mechanisms. It becomes an identity.
150 years ago in 1871, a young man by the name of Bernhard H. Mayer® began a journey of establishing his family enterprise. Working out of Pforzheim, Germany, which was a hub for craftsmen and watchmakers, the company went on to receive critical acclaim and recognition for its high-quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and innovative designs.
The Evolution of Bernhard H. Mayer®
Over the years the brand has evolved from crafting medallions to becoming a statement of elegance, success, and empowerment. The core values that raised the company to the heights it has reached today is imbued into every timepiece that leaves the Bernhard H. Mayer® factory.
Today, in celebration of the brand’s sesquicentennial anniversary and its amazing journey spanning five generations, the company is proud to introduce two amazing watches for the Bernhard H. Mayer® 150th Anniversary Collection.
Celebrating 150 Years of Tradition, Quality, and Excellence
Designed as an ode to the rich history and tradition of the brand, the Bernhard H. Mayer® 150th Anniversary Collection features a special commemorative coin on the watch face at 3 o’clock displaying the iconic Mayer factory building in Pforzheim pre-World War 2.
The collection comes in two lustrous, modern finishes. The first is a gorgeous 43mm automatic 18k Rose Gold edition with black sandblasted dial and matching black crocodile print leather strap. The watch features rose gold accents and a polished finish bezel. At the heart of the timepiece is a Swiss automatic – ETA 6497 movement with the anniversary’s logo engraved on the special cut-out rotor. This amazing timepiece displays the commemorative Bernhard H. Mayer® coin in Rose Gold with only 150 pieces made, one for each year the brand has been in existence.
The second watch is a sleek 43mm automatic stainless steel edition with a blue sand blasted dial and polished stainless steel accents. The watch features the same composition as the Rose Gold edition and displays the commemorative Bernhard H. Mayer® coin in 925 sterling silver. The stainless steel edition is limited to 1871 units in recognition of the year it all began.
The Bernhard H. Mayer® 150th Anniversary Collection is the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, and the belief that excellence does not give way to compromise. It brings the past into the present and showcases everything that makes Bernhard H. Mayer® unique.
Throughout its illustrious history, the brand has carried forward a tradition of quality, excellence, and pride. Wearing a Bernhard H. Mayer® watch embodies the values of this 150-year-old institution. It is more than an instrument for keeping time, it is a statement of all that you believe in and stand for.
