2010 saw the birth of a new watch brand called Sonic Watches. It is a german brand based in Mannheim a beautiful city half way between Frankfurt and Stuttgart in Germany. So for Watch fans the first idea here would be to say, watches are only swiss-made or not. So what about Sonic Watches?

Peter Schall, co-founder of this new brand is part of a small group of watchmakers and engineers who decided about one year ago to develop accurate timepieces for professionals and watch lovers. Their passion background is Sea and Sky diving, so from this passionate engineers  come up a new technical brand.

Their first star product is the SONIC BARRACUDA 2000. A great piece of art that gets you down to 2000 meters (200 bars) !!! It has a Helium Valve and a Swiss movement from ETA (one of the biggest watch movement suppliers in the world).

They have a online shop and a friendly customer service where they promise a 24H answer, which is far more than some brands.
They also have a customization options like you can add your Logo on the Dialing, choose some surface finish and an orange minute hand.

I tend to believe that Watch making is not only Swiss but sometimes it depends on what we base the speech. Here with the Barracuda 2000, we can see that passionate people got a pleasant need to be filled.  What do you think?
