FrontRunners: Shifting Gears

Not content with merely selling the wares of German watch manufacturers, the Hamburg-based retailer Wempe (www.wempe.com) has joined them. Wempe enlisted the German firm Nomos, located in the watchmaking center of Glashütte, to help develop its Wempe Chronometerwerke Glashütte watches. The company offers simple hand-wound models ($5,500 to $9,950) as well as a tourbillon ($110,500).
