Bruno Söhnle: Facetta

My best time

Bruno Söhnle joins 1957 in the Big Watch Factory “Heges” of his older brothers. Just 17 years young, he is fascinated by the idea of placing state-of-the-art technology within the limited space of a watch case on the wrist of the people–ten years later he has devoted himself to the production of wristwatches under different brand names.

But the way to your own watch brand is marked by ups and downs, as with any human being. But his will and his tenacity to make self-watches will pay off. In the year 2000, for his 60 birthday, the active entrepreneur Bruno Söhnle presents himself his own watch brand. In the Saxon glassworks he first relies on the construction of classic wristwatches with quartz as in “With this step,” says Bruno Söhnle, “began my best time.”–the slogan of the brand Bruno Söhnle was born.

2012, Bruno Söhnle leaves his production facility, the old-venerable former Assmann house, lavishly renovated. The watchmaking studio is adapted to modern work processes and is set up according to contemporary watchmaking. The ceremonial opening is also the starting signal for a new big project. Together with his team he develops the idea of a completely new watch: “Facetta 1957” is the last body influenced and inspired by Bruno Söhnle and reflects the facets not only of his, but of every life: good and bad times, ups and downs are symbolized by polished and matt, steep and flat facets on the casing of the watch. This created a watch that became a personal symbol of his own life for her wearer, a philosophical timepiece with personality and character.
