The essence of Swiss watchmakingWith a sleek and sophisticated look, dress watches embody the essence of classic Swiss watchmaking and timeless elegance. Whether you're looking to make an understatement or just want to keep it simple, our collection curated by Valentin Thalmann has got you covered.
Lack of ComplicationsRule Nr. 1
"A dress watch should be elegant and minimal, often refered as understated. Beautiful when noticed but not calling too much attention, it shows the time at a quick glance and nothing else."
Small DiameterRule Nr.2
"Ideally, a dress watch is on the small side, often 36mm or less, thin in order to fit easily under a cuff and will feature some polished metal. Monochromatic designs are prefered as they are less noisy."
Leather StrapRule Nr. 3
"A dress watch is typically worn on a high-quality leather strap. "

5 Reasons for Vintage
Exclusive watches, that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, only a few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyReason Nr. 4
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill an essential financial purpose for the producers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
