The ‘Fabulous Fifties’ was a time of awakening and new fashion (Read more in our article ‘The style of the 50s’). Heinz Huber was right in the middle of it and founded a watch brand in 1955 in Pforzheim, the center of the German watch- and jewelry industry in the Black Forest. Circula was named after the circulating balance wheel in mechanical movements.
In 2018, financed through crowdfunding, we took up the heritage with a new watch collection. The watches combine the original vintage design of the 50s with today’s urban style and allow an elegant as well as casual appearance. Our watches are timeless and stylish companions for any occasion.
ABOUT THE (NEW) FOUNDER
The fascination for watches was passed onto Cornelius Huber, grandson of the original Circula founder. For over 90 years, the family is active in the watch industry that combines craftsmanship and shape in such a unique way. For him, building watches is a passion and a tradition.
Inspired by elegance and style of his grandfather’s vintage watch, the wedding gift of his dad, he had the idea to make such watches again. Following the family tradition, good watches have to be affordable and last for many years. Just like his grandfather passed the love for Circula onto him, each watch is built so it can be handed on to the next generation.
ABOUT THE QUALITY
High quality wristwatches for today’s and future generations
Swiss Made – In Switzerland, the single components are assembled with ultimate precision and each watch undergoes a thorough quality control.
Accurate and reliable – In the heart of our watches, we fit a quartz movement of world-renowned Swiss manufacturer Ronda.
Vintage inspired with a modern touch – We have gently modernized the minimalistic and elegant chic of the 50s. Traditionally domed dial, double-domed mineral, combined with a bigger case, new colors and fascinating details on crown and second hand. Read more in our article ‘The style of the 50s’.
Flawless without scratches – The case of our watches is made of high-quality 316L stainless steel. For the glass, we made the deliberate decision to use K1 mineral. K1 is almost as scratch-resistant as sapphire, yet doesn’t shatter as easily. Read more in our articles ‘316L Stainless Steel‘ and ‘Watch glass comparison‘.
Elegant and durable – The watch straps are made of stainless steel, textile or genuine Italian nappa leather. They combine vintage look with high endurance and wearing comfort.
2-year warranty – on the movement, hands and dial.
