"Kronen & Soehne" was founded in 1992 by a group of mechanical watchmakers in Germany. Beginning with a small workshop in an unknown alley, over the course of a few years its watches were praised for their elaborate art and craft and thus became more and more known. Gradually, the style and sophistication of the KS watch fascinated people in Germany, although they would sometimes struggle to afford one. Despite the increasing fame of the watch, the KS watchmakers remained consistent to their craft and chose to follow their heart and zealously pursue to perfect the mechanical watch.

With years of continuous development and experience, KS grew into a successful business and rapidly expanded to America, Asia, Australia and many other parts of the globe, exceeding its national borders. However in the following years, the widespread popularity of the Quartz watch had inevitably a significant impact on the production and sales of the mechanical watch, resulting in the decline of orders and idleness, driving the KS business into a crisis.

Still, the watchmakers in KS never changed the business to quartz watch but with strong enthusiasm and conviction remained true to the uniqueness of their skill and invested in research and development of the mechanical watch instead, firmly proving its everlasting and exquisite qualities.
