Iron Walker is made for the independent man who doesn’t waver from his principles. Instead of being dazzled by short-term mainstream taste, he prefers modern design and sporty elegance combined with durability. For these free spirits, the Iron Walker line with integrated stainless-steel bracelets offers four different men’s models: a chronograph, a diver’s watch, and two flat dress watches. When all the design variants are taken into account, a total of sixteen new models with self-winding or quartz movements are available. Steel strength and sparkle for strong, self-assured women. This kind of woman prefers to wear an individualized stainless-steel watch that expresses her personal lifestyle. The Iron Walker line offers women’s watch models with self-winding or quartz movements and three different dial colors. Here too, the stainless-steel bracelet is integrated into the design and ensures an optimal fit.

Iron Walker watches are powered by Swiss self-winding calibers or quartz movements of proven quality. To ensure that Wempe standards are met, the movements are assembled in the company’s own workshop in Glashütte, Saxony, and optimized with a fine adjustment and are precisely timed to undergo chronometer certification. Watches that pass the German chronometric testing process must be capable of being set to the second. The caliber may not be tested separately but only after it has been integrated into the case. Only if the watch has an average rate deviation of two seconds per day or less can it pass the German test in accordance with the ISO 3159 standard and thus be called a chronometer.
