ARCTOS was one of the first German watchmaking companies to introduce the automatic movement made with zirconium oxide (ZrO2). The material, a high-tech ceramic and titanium, is ultra durable and can withstand bumps and scratches. ARCTOS began in 1923 when Philipp Weber and Jakob Aeschbach founded Weber & Aeschbach watches. Nearly 100 years later ARCTOS is still creating timepieces, now on straps, for the rugged adventurer.
