Jul 15, 2021

Germany is a country that produces everything in high quality, the 6 German watch brands below are the examples. As we all know, some of German watches relate to World War history and carry its nation's identity. They are crafted with high passion which is based on military standards, powerful and accurate. 

On the other hand, there are also some German watch brands that were founded by a group of people with no background in watchmaking but unexpectedly produce great watches. Without further ado, here we present to you the best German watches. We have Aristo, Damasko, Dietrich, Dievas, Evant, and Steinhart.

1. Aristo

In 1907, both the Aristo Uhren (Aristo watches) and Uhrgehäusefabrik (Watch cases factory) were founded by watchmaker Julius Epple in Pforzheim. The company held the successful era for the last three generations, focusing on crafting pilot watches, dive watches, and sports watches. This brand loves to offer their customers affordable German watches with high-end features. Let’s say Flieger 38 Sextant 5H87 and Carbonsports 7H95.

Flieger 38 Sextant 5H87

Given the name “Flieger” which means aviator in German, this watch took inspiration from pilot watches from the 40s. In other words, the timepiece is truly designed for aviators who need high legibility. Because of that reason, Aristo then brushed the dial with matte black and markers in white. A color combination that won’t hurt your eyes nor confuse the time reading.

Flieger 38 Sextant 5H87

To support the original function as an accurate time teller, this watch uses Swiss Made automatic caliber, ETA2824-2, which vibrates at 28,800 bph and provides a 40 hours power reserve. This movement can be seen through the case back when you flip the watch. Click here if you want to know more details of the watch.

Carbonsports 7H95 

Carbonsports 7H95, one of the best German watches from Aristo, is launched in a good combination of modernity and sportiness. Just like its name, the carbon fiber is used on its black dial to deliver a distinctive texture.

It stays simple with white Arabic numeral markers and fresh yellow hands. Having SuperLuminova C3 applied on the markers and hands, make this wristwatch visible even in the darkest room.

The 39mm diameter is appropriate for both women and men wrist size. The model of the watch also fits for any occasion from formal meeting with clients to fun beach activity with kids since the screw-down crown gives you enough protection up to 100 meter depth. Find out more about this wristwatch.

2. Damasko

Konrad Damasko is a man behind the establishment of one of the best German watch brands, Damasko watches. The company created its own in-house watches since it was first founded in 1994. Their greatest achievement is developing nickel-free material. Below are top collections from Damasko you do not want to miss.

DK30 Ocean

A unique character for this one of German watches rests on the case which is employed by what Damasko says "Deutscher U-Boat-Stahl" (German Submarine Steel). It is a high-strength alloy steel that guarantees you a robust construction to resist corrosion and scratch.

DK30 Ocean

The minimalist blue dial gives you a clean layout. It is simple yet very attractive. One more important thing, this timepiece has a German made automatic movement, A26-1, that let it perform at 28,800 bph and has a 42 hours power reserve. The movement is certified to be anti-magnetic and shockproof. 

The specs above do represent the quality of German products. So, are you still doubting German watch brands? I hope not. Because this one of the best German watches, DK30 Ocean, cannot wait to be in your cart.

Almost all elements of DC67 are originally made in-house by Damasko. This piece offers you an unusual case material, ice-hardened nickel-free stainless steel, that can be tempered up to 64 HRC/800Vickers and resistant to corrosion. Not only the case, this ice-hardened steel is also used for the screw-down crown and pushers.

Taking a closer look at the whole appearance, it delivers a monochrome vibe: white dial, black markers, grey hands, black day and date, and black leather bracelet. DC67 is very functional for your everyday activity because it features precise chronographs, bi-directional bezel, and calendar display.

3. Dietrich

In 2009, one of the best German watch brands named Dietrich joined the watch market with breathtaking futuristic timepieces. It was originally set up by Emmanuel Dietrich. Once you wear a Dietrich, you won’t stop admiring the masterpiece that Emmanuel made . “It is the expression of my desire for balance, a balance between feelings, forms, sensations and pleasure,” the founder once said. Let’s take a closer look at some Dietrich timepieces.

TC-1 Grey PVD

What if you are getting bored with circular bezel? No need to worry, here Dietrich TC-1 Grey PVD presents you an iconic octagonal bezel style with a full stainless steel material and multilink metal bracelet which has hexagonal segments. TTC-1 Grey PVD combines artworks from two genius designers, Gerald Genta and Emmanuel Dietrich.

To ensure the watch can withstand any conditions and pressures, the 42mm diameter case is layered with PVD coating. To be qualified as the best German watches, Dietrich put ETA 2824-2 on the heart offering great accuracy to the watch owner. Overall, TC-1 Grey PVD really distributes a sporty luxurious watch at its best. Click here to see the full specification. One of high quality pieces from many German watch brands.

OT-2

The Organic Time is the first collection from Dietrich, and it totally speaks the brand’s signature. It is bold, sensual, and exquisite at the same time. The stainless steel case is used for the 48mm diameter case, frame, and the bezel, all treated by PVD coating for a well-built construction.

Dietrich protects the dial with sapphire crystal and anti-glare coating. Speaking about the dial, it is quite entertaining, isn’t it? There are more than 1 layer and much detail to look at. If you are a person who pays attention to details, then Dietrich OT-2 is what you need.

4. Dievas

In 2006, Dievas began to manufacture timepieces for the first time. It was initiated by Mr. Ander Tan. Though it is still new in the watchmarket, the brand successfully catches a large amount of attention from watch enthusiasts by performing its own innovation, reliability, and blueprint. That’s why now Dievas is known as one of the best German watch brands.

Dievas Timeattack

Seeking a chronograph timepiece from German watches brands? Dievas Timeattack is the best option to pick. Timeattack brings you a very fresh look with yellow and orange colors in the black dial. When there are no light sources, the markers and hands will glow because it got a multi-layered SuperLuminova.

Dievas Timeattack

What if it accidentally hits the wall? Will it crack? No, it won’t. Dievas Tiemattack, the gem of German watch brands, have prevented this to happen by having 6STEEL as the material of the case. And big thanks to the Swiss automatic movement ETA7750 that would make the timepiece function as perfect as if it did not hit the wall. So, what are you waiting for? Take this superb wristwatch home now!

5. Evant

Unlike other German watch brands, the history of Evant in December 2015 began from an unexpected moment. A group of watch collectors that have different backgrounds—designers, engineers, watchmakers—then decided to start their own project in watchmaking. Keeping four values—aesthetics, well-made, reliability, and affordability—the brand quickly got huge respect and appreciation from watch enthusiasts.

Polestar Terra Green

Polestar Terra Green is loved by many watch seekers because a modern style and historic elements are blended perfectly by Evant. The stainless steel case features glossy bombé lugs that captured a vintage case design from the 70s era.

What makes this wristwatch more attractive is its dial colour, radiating shiny blue and deep green that truly describes our oceans landscapes. Also, Evant never forget to put SuperLuminova as self-illumination on every index that will glow in bluish-green.

The watch perfectly hugs my wrist in a 20mm green cordovan leather bracelet with neat row stitchings. Made with a screw-down crown type, you probably would love Evant’s 300 meter water resistance. This limited edition timepiece is powered by Swiss automatic movement SW-200-1 which vibrates at 28,800 bph. Do not miss this true work of German watch brands here.

6. Steinhart

In the early 20th century, Gunther Steinhart began his business in the watchmaking industry that took place in Augsburg, Germany. The name of the brand was originally taken from the founder, Steinhart, who was previously known as an engineer rather than watchmaker. 

Founded in Augsburg, the head office was recently moved to Stadtbegen. Now, Steinhart is considered one of the best German watch brands. Below is an example of Steinhart masterpieces.

Ocean 39 Marine Blue

Ocean 39 Marine Blue is a wonderful result of a collaboration between Steinhart and Gnomon. This piece is ready to take you down to the deep ocean with a heritage model of military dive watches in the 70s.

Ocean 39 Marine Blue

The stainless steel case measures a 39mm length and 14mm thickness. It is finished in satin brushed on the top of its lugs and polished at the side case. The dial flaunts blue which harmonizes the bezel, but the square markers and hands show you a contrasting color of yellow. Moving on to the movement, Ocean 39 Marine Blue - Gnomon Exclusive is powered by high-end Swiss automatic movement, ETA2824. It keeps the watch accurate even when you bring it to 300m depth of water.
