The brand name of BUBEN&ZORWEG is evolving from a well-kept secret among passionate lovers of fine timepieces to the epitome for luxury, innovation and design in the world of exclusive chronometers. School friends Harald Buben and Christian Zörweg began setting new standards on the market for watch winders shortly after founding the company in 1995. Continuous further development and innovation soon enabled the presentation of the world's smallest, largest and most exclusive watch winders. A further milestone in the company's ongoing development was the introduction of the sleep phase in every TIME MOVER® model. 2005 saw the founding of BUBEN&ZORWEG Fine Timepieces in co-operation with Daniel Zörweg and, as a result, the presentation of the first collection of luxurious table clocks.
