NB Yaeger Pilot Watches was conceived and presented by master watchmaker Martin Braun. The Martin Braun company is a well established German company led by Martin Braun. Martin began life as an antique watch restorer, specializing in complicated watches. He quickly let to eminence for being able to restore, and re build the most complicated watches in the world. At the same time he was working on his own projects such as the EOS complication watch. This took five years to build which included one year just for the mathematical calculations of the sunrise and sunset times, which this watch is able to indicate into the future. Martin also makes other complicated highly functional watches which feature astronomical complications, equation of time indicators, world positions, moonphase, day and night, chronograph and calendar watches. Martin Braun has won many industry awards and are recognised as being leaders in complicated watchmakers, which are hand finished and not mass produced. Apart from Martin the workshop has two watchmakers, two master watchmakers and two quality inspectors. That is on quality inspector for every two employees! Perhaps an obsession for quality as well as watch making ingenuity.
