The link between HIRSCH and leather goes back to the 18th century : Johannes Franz Hirsch, born in 1765, was a master leather craftsman in Neunkirchen in Lower Austria.
Since that time, the Hirsch family has been involved in the processing of leather.
In 1945, HIRSCH decided to focus on making bracelets for watches. Its history is characterised by numerous important innovations, from the invention of the Rembordé technology of seamlessly joining the upper material and the lining, to the development of a method for making leather water resistant, to the only clinically tested system for the prevention of leather allergies in the world.
The purpose of all HIRSCH innovations is to ensure the long life, comfort in wear and aesthetic appearance of the bracelets in all the different situations in which they are worn.
HIRSCH's knowledge of and feel for bracelets for watches enables the company to provide full support, as a technical partner, to the development work of the watch making industry.
Every HIRSCH leather bracelet is :
- Remborded :
The Rembordé technology invented, patented and continuously developed further by HIRSCH, joins upper and lining leather without any seam. The bracelets are thus perfectly protected from external influences, highly resistant to wear and very long-lasting.
- water-resistant :
They are water-resistant and dry more quickly than conventional bracelets. Even if they get wet, their visual appearance, suppleness and functionality are by no means impaired.
- sauna-tested :
Conventional bracelets often become brittle after a short while or break even ! HIRSCH bracelets, however, are sauna-tested. Even the combination of heat, moisture and perspiration does not harm them. They stay in shape, remain supple and pleasant to wear...
