I agree. I love that they still keep things small, truly hand-made (no CNC, etc.), super high-quality, beautifully designed, etc. They are indeed a family business, but it looks to me that Dirk Dornbluth is still pretty young; they do have assistants; and if DD's son or daughter don't take over the business I assume some life-long employee will continue the brand, like Jorg Schauer has with Stowa. This interview was done just this past March, and DD's answer indicates a stable future: I think it is absolutely great that in 1999 Dirk D presented his father Dieter with a watch for his 60th birthday...the first in-house Dornbluth movement, which the father had designed (but never built) 40 years before! Such a cool story. Newcomer, If you haven't read it yet, this is also a very nice piece on Dornbluth, longer and with many good photos of the workshop. Obviously the best way would be direct from Dornbluth, but that takes more time as they are made to order. Otherwise the non-Germany ADs are listed here. The ADs, however, don't have large quantities as Dornbluth only produce 120 watches per year. Prices range from ~ $4,000 to ~$8,000, more for custom of course. easy_golfing, that 09 Jasmin you linked is the only women's watch Dornbluth produce, to date. 34.5mm.
