Heinz Huber was in the midst of it and founded a watch brand in 1955 in Pforzheim, the center of the German watch and jewelry industry in the Black Forest.

Today as then, our goal is to create exceptional, precise watches, in high quality and at fair prices.
Cornelius Huber, grandson of the founder, revived Circula in 2018 to build on this heritage. After a successful start with quartz watches, we are now again producing first-class mechanical masterpieces. In homage to the founder and the brand name, a balance wheel is embossed on the crown. All watches are made by hand in Pforzheim and in the Heritage collection even the mechanical movements come entirely from Germany (more in ‘Vintage movements‘).
