Germano & Walter Watches

Germano & Walter watch details"I dreamed of creating my own watchesGermano & Walter workshop for a long time until I said it to my friend Alexander Walter who was designer and engineer of the BMW company. We wanted to create a timepiece that is extremely resistant to shock and waterproof. Together, we made a few sketches and finally in 2005 created the first draft of Germano & Walter 500 m. Walter soon drew a sketch of the professional draft. In November 2005, I completed the establishment of the first prototype. Since then, in Munich, we create watches in limited series. Pietro Germano was born September 16, 1953 in the Italian city Verbicaro. Ever since childhood he has always been fascinated by different technologies: it is often analyzed and collected all the home alarms. From 1979 - 1984, he studied at the photographer, and since 1985 he has organized several exhibitions of his photographs and paintings. Being a lover of vintage cars, he was involved in their repair. He also repaired watches and produced for them, the leather straps. In 2002 he built the first model wristwatch Minute Repetition, and in 2005 together with Alexander Walter designed and constructed Germano & Walter 500 m.
Walter Alexander was born April 27, 1963 in the German city Berching. Since childhood, his career was a foregone conclusion: the inventor and designer. From 1985 – 1991 he studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich. Since 1998 he is an engineer - developer of the BMW company.
