Now, for the first time, we’re ready to pull back the curtain and reveal where our watches are made—and what makes them a favorite of so many wrists.
The design and development of our timepieces takes place in our Park Slope mothership in Brooklyn, NY. Long before it was hip to call yourself a Brooklynite, we were connecting with Stührling owners around the world through our ongoing digital dialogue to refine designs and ensure satisfaction on wrists everywhere. But when it comes to manufacturing our designs, we went to the same place that Apple, Bose, Sony, and other market-leaders turned to: Shenzhen.
Simply put, the world-class manufacturing capabilities found in this part of China’s Guangdong province rivals (actually, surpasses) everywhere from Silicon Valley to Stuttgart in terms of quality, performance, and value. For a generation that cares more about how something is made rather than where it’s made, brands looking to deliver both maximum quality and value don’t have to look farther than Shenzhen.
By now you’re probably wondering why a client list full of top-tier tech brands would be of interest to a company in the business of classically inspired timepieces—not to mention the movements that power them. And though our skeleton watches, divers, and tourbillons thrill in the same way as the latest tech accessories do, the core designs and “technology” of watches have remained pretty much unchanged for almost three centuries. But despite having the whole world to choose from, Stührling opted for Shenzhen—the Switzerland of world-class manufacturing and the perfect place to launch a watch brand that would go on to disrupt the industry.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
