AS SEEN IN

German made luxury watches: exclusive and expensive until we came along. We reinvent luxury with nifty design elements unlocking features never seen before in premium handmade German watches at this price level. We create value in small batch watchmaking our customers are looking for. In partnership with the 4th-generation German watchmaking family company Mitschele and German leather strap manufacturer Di-Modell (since 1969). Both enjoy excellent reputations earned over decades.     

THE COSMOPOLITAN

Professional watches have quality, simplicity, functionality and durability. A day to day luxurious dress watch is slim and accessible for an honest price without cutting corners. 

Quality made in Germany! 

Pursuing this objective we started consumer dialogues, and after their feedback, reinvented the Bauhaus watch principle of geometrical shapes, incorporating the elements of today’s lifestyle. Our first watch was born. A modern classic for him and her without bells and whistles. Slim, clean, aesthetic, harmonious and distinctive.

Only our B logo appears on the dial to avoid design disruption.

 

The Cosmopolitan, a German “Meister” piece with Mitschele’s authentic manufacturing certificate and Belcori/ Mitschele’s unique 5-year warranty, as we are very confident about our quality.

BAUHAUS INSPIRED DESIGN

Inspired by the iconic Bauhaus design, with its signature straight lines and geometrical shapes, the Cosmopolitan is a true classic, updated with refined details for a modern appeal. Slim, clean aesthetic, harmonious and distinctive.

CULTURED LUXURY FOR HIM AND HER

For cosmopolitan men and women. Sophisticated. Your daily time companion for easy travel with extra Belcori´s vegetable-tanned fine leather straps suitable for every outfit.

Made in Germany guarantees exceptional quality, master craftsmanship and precision engineering to last. To ensure that all our watches also have attractive price points, not everything can be made in. Germany at a competitive price. 

Some components are sourced from selective foreign partners, adhering to stringent German industry and social standards. Watchmaking, assembly, testing, packaging, product shipping is all done in Pforzheim, the cradle of German watchmaking and the home of Mitschele. Mitschele is a typical German family company, handcrafting watches for famous names as Mercedes, Audi, Braun Bueffel and many international fashion brands. 

Our vegetable tanned leather straps are handmade by Di-Modell in Tauberbischofsheim. Another family-owned company with exports to 90 countries including Japan and China. A Belcori German-made watch is an accessory to enhance your lifestyle. A benefit is the Belcori/ Mitschele/ Di- Modell partnership you can rely on for after-sales service and peace of mind.
