About Germany


German Flag

Germany is one of the most powerful industrial countries in the world. Germany is located at the center of Europe, and is bordered with Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark.

Germany, which has one of the highest standards of living worldwide, is the largest economy in Europe and the fourth largest in the world (after the United States, Japan and China).

There is a large market in Germany for luxury watches and fine jewelry. There is also a demand for custom-made single series watches with mechanic mechanism. The most sought after jewelry designs in Germany mainly feature metal settings with high-quality small diamonds, while the precision and quality of the work are of high importance, especially in diamond settings.
