A family-owned company discovers the threefold path to success: reliability, exclusivity and continuity
Wempe’s corporate history is approaching the 135-year mark, making it one of Germany’s oldest family-owned companies. Originally a one-man enterprise, it has become the employer of more than 700 men and women. From a small watchmaker’s workshop it has grown to encompass 32 branches — including two Rolex ,one A. Lange & Soehne and one Jaeger LeCultrue Boutiques — located on premium sites in Germany, other European countries, New York and now even Beijing. And from its beginnings as a trader of used watches it has grown to be one of today’s largest and highest turnover dealers of fine timepieces and jewellery in Europe, with its own jewellery brand (BY KIM), its own watch lines (Wempe Chronometerwerke Maritime, Wempe Chronometerwerke Glashütte i/SA and Wempe Zeitmeister Glashütte i/SA) and the largest watch workshop run by a European retail dealer.
