The Fleddermann von Rieste story is one rooted deep in family pride and tradition. Our founder comes from a strong German heritage, with roots in agriculture and metalworking. The desire to produce legacy quality timepieces is a labor of love and a passion for quality that provides a generational link.
Our founders noticed the pride his father took in owning his grandfather's watch at a young age. He took note of the care his father gave it and listened to the stories of family history and the pride his great-grandfather must have had in his watch.
Enamored at how his father cherished this watch, he learned that a timepiece was special. At this moment, our founder realized that a watch could be much more than a tool for keeping time.
This watch was much more than a tool. It was a piece of pride. It was cherished by each member of the Fledderman family who has owned it. Bought during the Great Depression, a sacrifice was made for the purchase. While this was not an ultra-luxury watch, it was still much more than a watch from the local discount store.
Seeing the pride his father felt in owning his grandfather's watch never left our founder's soul. He remembered every moment of the first time he saw it, held it, hoped for it to be his one day. This memory stoked a fire to bring quality, dependable, and stylish timepieces to you and the future generations of your family.
Fleddermann von Rieste offers a two-year warranty period on all watches.
We promise that every watch we send to your family meets the same standards as it would for ours. We design each watch to become family heirlooms from the first wearing.
We take great pride in providing attainable legacy timepieces that generations can be proud to wear, share, and cherish.
The Fleddermann family arms bear the family values of Faith, Industriousness, Integrity, and Service. We hold these values within the mission of our company.
Everyone deserves a second chance at confidence.
We believe it is the right of every person to feel confident in the pursuit of their dreams. For some, without a second chance, these dreams may seem unattainable. Unfortunately, many need a second chance. To error is human, and every person should be allowed the opportunity to make amends for their past.
We will donate a portion of every sale to charities devoted to helping incarcerated and previously incarcerated individuals find a successful re-entry into the workforce, their families, and our community.
