The only Made in Germany timepieces brand combining
strong fashion elements with watchmaking craftsmanship!
LET’S EMBARK ON THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER
Engineered and created in a Pforzheim workshop, KÖNIG74 watches for men and women carry the ‘Made in Germany’ stamp that guarantees authenticity, technical precision and elegant engineering. Reliability, stability and luxury are assured through the use of high-quality materials such as carbon fibre, ceramic, stainless steel and precious gemstones.
Keenly determined, founder Rico Pross does not want to be known as a manufacturer that follows the crowd – but instead, with KÖNIG74, we all tell our individual story.
We are all story-tellers and each watch we create ends up becoming a part of the stories we tell. This is who we are, this is what we believe in, this is the kind of person I am, this is the cause that I stand for. Be a King or be a Queen and live your life to tell YOUR story….
THE ROYAL SEAL OF WATCHES
It began with a dream, a destiny to create the very first German watchmaking brand that focuses not only on functionality and technical qualities but also combines fanciness and innovation with the unique power of precious gemstones.
Journeying across the magnificent mountains and through the dense pine and oak trees of the Black Forest in southwest Germany, we arrive at Pforzheim - the epicentre of Germany’s jewellery and watchmaking industry in the late 18th century.
The rising popularity of the wristwatch in the 1920s meant that a century later, in 2020, this noble town is once again fondly remembered for its craftsmanship capabilities and emerges as the birthplace of KÖNIG74.
A watch brand with bold beginnings and a dynamic future, KÖNIG – King in German – reclaims the throne and stands proudly at the forefront of an exciting new era in modern German watchmaking.
The brand originates its mission in the pursuit of a Watch that provides quality, authenticity, modernity and demonstrates that a timepiece can be both, a symbol of excellence and an object of desire. KÖNIG74 sees to make all its wearers proud through passion, craftsmanship, cutting-edge design and relentless pursuit of innovation.
"After traveling the world, I could not find the watch I desired - and therefore I decided to create one myself."
