1957 – 1999
A Family Life Devoted to Time
In 1957, Bruno Söhnle entered the "Heges" large watch factory belonging to his brother, which was located in Swabian Wurmberg. At exactly 17 years-young, he is fascinated by the idea of placing the most state-of-the-art technology, within the confined space of a watch case, onto the wrists of people. Ten years later, he is already dedicating himself to the production of wrist watches under different brand names.
He takes over the distribution of Swiss watches, such as Epos, builds up sales for the "Mühle, Nautische Instrumente Glashütte" brand after German unification, and with production based in his own native Wurmberg, manages German wholesale trade with licensed products of the Regent, Rodania and 4You brands.
