Sothis Watches are Made in Germany
Sothis Watches are the creation of innovative watch designer Wolfgang Steinkrueger, who created Sothis in 1996 in Bielefeld, Germany in a lovely mountain valley between the Wiehen-Mountains and the Teutoburg Forest. By creating his own brand after years of making fine watches for other companies, Steinkruger was able to fufill his dream to combine technical innovation with beautiful design in a unique vision inspired by a star. Sothis is named after one of the night sky's brightest stars, which is better known in English as Sirus, the Dog Star. This star, following the great hunter Orion in the night sky symbolizes the faithful companion of the ages time.
