High-End Watches With Old-School European Flair

2 min read

European timepieces can trace their origin all the way back to the early 16th century. It was a German clockmaker named Peter Heinlen, specifically, who built the first watch. As a matter of fact, watchmakers in Germany and Switzerland are keeping up that tradition of timekeeping excellence today. Obviously, there isn’t a second to spare if you want to add one of these high-end watches to your collection.
