Manufaktur Waldhoff was started in 2015 by Nicolas, a Swiss Watch Designer, and Manfred Starck Uhren Gmbh, a watch manufacturer based in Pforzheim, to create a line of high-end Automatic watches. Our idea is to combine the skills of a Swiss watch designer with high-tech engineering and time-tested craft of a German watch manufacturer.
Our primary goal is to create extraordinary Automatic timepieces of a high quality level, entirely assembled and calibrated by hand, in house, in our factory in Germany. We are not after quick money and misleading marketing slogans, as we want our products to speak for themselves.
We started design work in 2015 in Geneva, just steps away from Lake Geneva. Nicolas did countless sketches, concepts, prototypes and samples until we were fully satisfied with every detail. Our designs are classic contemporary and timeless, so that they will still look beautiful decades from now.
Our quality testing standards are ISO 2859-1 (ANSI/ASQC Z1.4-2003), and we thoroughly inspect all components 100% before proceeding to assembly in our very own factory in Pforzheim. Movements are subject to accuracy testing machine with allowable tolerance (+/-0.1ms), and Dials are assembled under an electronic alignment machine. We strive to produce as much as possible ourselves even if it costs us more or takes longer.
The Multimatic is our flagship product for the discerning gentleman. The Multimatic has a commanding presence that is hard to miss, and will attract attention for its bold and detailed dial.

The Republic is our most sporty style. It features a see through dial showing its mechanical movement and beating heart. Large hands and hour markers with Swiss Tritec luminous ensure easy readability. Sporty yet classic, it can be worn in the office just as well as in a game of polo.
The Regent is our most sophisticated style for the watch connoisseur. It features a dial window revealing its mechanical heart, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour. Its design is a harmonious balance between modern and tradition.
At 42mm it looks at home even on a 6.5" / 16.5cm narrow wrist.
The Renaissance is our most subtle style, taking its design back to time-honored basics, functionality and dependability. Inspired by the timeless shapes of late 20th century German race cars, it is intended to keep a modern look even decades from now.
