Wempe Adds a Trio of New Watches to their Iron Walker Collection

For the better part of two decades, Wempe has been producing high-quality watches out of their home in Glashütte, Germany. Three new models from their Iron Walker collection have been released, each exhibiting the Vorliebe that our Teutonic cousins have for precision, beauty, and exceptional quality.

The first to debut in the new Iron Walker collection is the Diver. Taking inspiration from the steel constructions that defined the era of imagination in 1920’s New York, the Diver marries the simplicity of a good watch and the beauty of a great watch into one. At 42mm, it’s a robust size but the overall finish, such as the diminutive day date and the lumed hands, help to keep it from feeling too bulky. The Diver comes in two colorways (blue and black), is water-resistant to 30 bars, and runs on a ETA 2892-A2 automatic movement, giving the wearer up to 50 hours of power reserve. 


Next up in the Iron Walker collection is Tide. Mixing maritime influences to the collection, this watch is as much about function as it is about form. While one could enjoy the balance of blue and black against the steel case alone, the real beauty is the internal mechanism of this watch. For life on the coast, the Tide’s rotating bezel offers maximum visibility on how much time will elapse between the next low or high tide. Similar to the Diver above, the Tide shares similar specs, such as an ETA 2892-A2 automatic movement, 30 bars of water-resistance, and lumed hands and hour markers.

Last, the Iron Walker GMT completes the series with its bright profile and everyday functionality. Like Tide and Diver, the GMT is a 42-mm stainless steel watch. This watch is equipped with an internal adjustable 24-hour bezel to quickly display a second time zone. With its contrasting colorways in either orange-and-black or silver-and-black, one can easily keep track of day and night for the second time zone. The GMT is powered by a SW330-2 movement with an independently set 24 hour hand, which provides roughly 42-hours of power and is water-resistant for up to 10 bars. 

All three of these watches are now available via Wempe’s website with prices starting at $4,150.
