Our History

What is the unique DNA of RB Baumgartner Swiss Watchmaking?

The unique about RB Baumgartner are the people who develop this young watch brand every day with great commitment and shape it with their ideas; it is the fascination, emotion and passion of these people that makes RB Baumgartner unique!

That’s why our watches are presented to you in the three categories “Fascination”, “Emotion” and “Passion”.

Each of these categories has one or more godfathers and godmothers who give the name to the individual watches based on their fascination, emotion and passion. Thus each watch is also a part of the history of the respective godfather or godmother.

      With Reto, it’s pretty clear. His passion are watches and therefore it is not surprising that he chooses names like “Amplitude”, “Ancre”, “Réglage”, “Rouage”, “Balancier” and “Barillet”. In addition to his fascination with watchmaking, he would also like to give homage to the language of watchmakers.
