Helmut W.There are only a few watch companies in theHelmut watch factory in Ganburge 1878 world, that are engaged in the production of handmade wristwatches. Hentschel German watch company is one of these brands. It was founded by Andreas Hentshel. Hentschel company has been specializing in the production of exclusive luxury mechanical watches for many years. Hentschel company is located in the German city of Hamburg, that by the 13th century has been already known as the city of trade and navigation. Hamburg is one of the most authoritative members of the Hanseatic League, the Union of the market cities, that has been established to ensure the security of trade in the sea and on land. It was during those years, when a lot of watchmakers had moved to this city. There they began to manufacture watches. Then, here the watchmaking school for the best watchmakers was opened.

An unusual thin sapphire crystal also attracts everyone's attention. But in fact, the thickness of it is 4 mm, the same as in watches from other collections. The curved black or white dials have Arabic or Roman numerals. The collection includes models with automatic or manual winding. There is one feature that distinguishes Hentschel watches from other watches. It is a subdial with a  second hand at “6:00”. This is the watch with manual winding. And in the automatic models the second hand is located in the center of the dial where there are hour and minute hands. The watches have a sapphire crystal exhibition back.

Hentschel H1-M and Hentschel H2 watches are equipped with A. Schild AS1130 movement, that has quite a long history. In the early 30s, the watches of the German Army were equipped with AS1130 movement. And as the military watches were  based on the AS1130 caliber, it was known as "Army Caliber." The task of the watchmakers was to develop one of the best movements. The fact, that all the parts of the movements were of a large size, and hence the movement was quite a big one, presented some difficulties. The large and durable movement had to be remade, but it must not have any influence on the accuracy and reliability of the watches. However, the watchmakers coped with this task, and thus the accuracy of the watches remained unchanged.
Watches of Hentschel H1 collection are equipped with Swiss ETA 900 movement.
Hentschel brand also produces custom-made watches.
So, the wrist watches are characterized by the old traditions of watchmaking art, the original and elegant design. These are the feaures, that Hentschel watches can be proud of.
