Germany’s Black Forest may be known best for its incredible nature and growing appeal for tourists. With the Black Forest Watch Company Carl von Zeyten, the region has another visually appealing feature on its side. In the middle of the last century, Carl von Zeyten, an ambitious and technically skilled watchmaker, dedicated all his efforts to the creation of unique pocket and wrist watches. Based in Freudenstadt in the Black Forest, he made a name for himself all over the country. In the following years he began to travel to Switzerland and also to England, gaining valuable new insights into the craft of manufacturing watches. Back home, he used these experiences to assemble singular watches for handpicked customers. Guided by the one principle to always improve his watches, he began to live his dream of a perfect mechanical watch.
