Bruno Söhnle

Bruno Söhnle joins the "Heges" clock factory of his older brothers in Wurmberg, Swabia, in 1957. Just 17 years young, he is fascinated by the idea to place the latest technology within the limited space of a watch case on the wrist of people - just 10 years later he is dedicated to the production of wristwatches under different brand names. He takes over the distribution of Swiss watches such as Epos and after the German reunification he helped to build up the Marke Mühle, Nautische Instrumente Glashütte/SA in West Germany and served with his own brand, based in Worms, the local production of the German wholesale with licensed products of the brands Regent, Rodania or 4You. In the year 2000, on his 60th birthday, the enterprising businessman Bruno Söhnle gives himself his own watch brand as a gift. In Glashütte, Saxony, he first relies on the construction of classic wristwatches with quartz movements. "With this step," says Bruno Söhnle, "my best time began." - the slogan of the brand Bruno Söhnle was born.
