Martin Braun USA Watches
Martin Braun stepped onto the world stage in November 2000, unveiling the EOS model; a watch displaying the times of sunrise and sunset. Braun simultaneously announced that he was launching his own brand. Previously, he had honed his craft in the German city of Pforzheim, working for years on vintage pieces as he perfected the design of the EOS.
Today, Braun has completed the EOS watch and EOS Boreas watch collections and has also unveiled Martin Braun's Classic watch collection. These are inspired by his work with vintage pieces, but each has a uniquely contemporary feeling. His Korona watch line "captures the sun," expanding Braun's legend and legacy.
