Stührling Original is a brand whose rich historical roots date back centuries, and whose timepieces are as popular as ever due to the renaissance of the mechanical self-winding watches among discerning style-conscious gentlemen along with the explosion of
electronic media into the world of merchandising in the 21st Century.
It began in the 1800's, when master watchmaker Max Stührling, rendezvoused with horologic history at the period when the lore of the Swiss watch-making legend was still in its infancy. Many of the famous names and great brands appeared for the first time: Perrelet, Breguet Girard-Perregaux, LeCoultre, Phillipe, Audemars, Patek, Nardin, Chopard, Heuer, Piguet, and Breitling among others.
By the time of the mid-19th Century, watches had become generally usable instruments, and there was increasing public demand.
Switzerland had silently become the leader, a position that had formerly been held by France and England; the "Swiss Watch" was on its way to become a legend and a guarantee for quality that few products or product categories have achieved since then.
In 1999, still enamored with the Swiss watch-making tradition and with his vast knowledge accrued in his own forty years of watch-making, Max Stührling IV founded his company adhering to the strictest principles of excellence and technological prowess with concept drawings and spec sheets for would-be investors. And in true Stührling fashion, Max IV insisted on creating only the most uniquely distinctive timepieces; masterpieces truly, utilizing cutting edge technology. The struggle that ensued over the next two to three years with his financiers was making him literally ill and he had almost given up hope until fate stepped in at the Basel Fair in 2002.
Purely by chance just walking around, Max IV met Mr. Fischer who had been discussing a similar venture with George J. Von Burgh (a third generation Swiss watch-maker and a legend in his own right) and that fluke meeting was a perfect marriage of parties and the point of conception for Stührling Original as we know it today. Thus, the born again Stührling Original rediscovers a master watch-making heritage; the reconnection of today's timepieces with glorious pieces of time in watch-making history is now attainable to a broader audience thanks to the commitment of all the parties.
The Stührling Original brand is an intimately exclusive brand, intended for seekers of originality and individuality. Every sublime Stührling Original timepiece boasts the singular watch-making tradition of technique, technology and craftsmanship, yet sports an artistic edge that redefines perfection.
