Felix Baumgartner (watchmaker) and Martin Frei (artist), first met in 1995 to discuss developing a watch. They founded URWERK in 1997 and presented their first timepiece with the AHCI at Basel that same year. URWERK is at the forefront of young innovative watch brands that are pushing the boundaries of haute horology ever further.
