Swedish design combined with German precision and Swiss movement, this is what KAPTEN & SON stands for. Founded in 2014, KAPTEN & SON in under a year has become a fast growing watch manufacturer. Based in Germany, the company already ships to all over Europe. ‘KAPTEN’ is the Swedish name for captain and symbolises what the watches stand for: adventure, courage and spirit of discovery, things people should spend more time on. “For us as founders this stands in the centre every day,” says manager and co-founder Artjem Weissbeck. “In 2014 we decided to take the risk and start our own business instead of taking a secure and well-paid job.”
