Bantiger Uhr stands for regionality, sustainability and sees life as an adventure.
High-quality materials are used, such as the grade 5 titanium case, which is known for its high strength, low density, biocompatibility and corrosion resistance.
The name of the brand refers to the Bantiger, a mountain (947 m above sea level) in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. The peak is located in the territory of the municipality of Bolligen. From the Bantiger – almost a hundred meters higher than the Bernese local mountain Gurten – you have a panoramic view with a view of the Bernese Alps and the Jura.
The timepieces of Bantiger Uhr are produced in Switzerland to avoid long transport routes and support the regional economy. Switzerland’s world-leading expertise in the watch industry also flows into the creation and production of the watches.
Sustainability and animal protection are important to us. For this reason, no mother-of-pearl or exotic types of leather such as alligator or snakeskin are used. Wherever possible, responsible and sustainable solutions are sought in production.
A concrete example of our commitment to sustainability is the use of titanium. Part of this precious material comes from recycled sources and each piece is moulded using 100% renewable energy. In this way, we not only emphasise the exceptional quality of titanium, but also work to reduce our environmental impact.
Another example is our natural brown sturgeon leather bracelet. It can proudly claim to be a pure product from the canton of Bern.
According to my understanding, life is an adventure. That’s how I get most out of it!
Paulo Coelho once said, “One day you’ll wake up and you won’t have time for the things you wanted to do. Do them now.” So that’s what I did: I created my own watch brand.
The vision of seeing life as an adventure is something I also want to share with my clients. The watches I create will accompany people on their individual life adventure and remind them that the only way to have time is to take time. Enjoy it!
