High quality materials, highest precision and
accuracy have always been a feature of Liha
gold watches. As one of the oldest watch
manufactories in Germany, we combine
modern production with the tradition of
the Liebhaber watchmaker family.
Liha gold watches show the time at its best. A distinctive feature is the depiction of the lunar phases. In the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o‘clock positions, the moon can be seen as a quarter, half, threequarter and full moon. The symbolic celestial bodies stand out from the dial by the use of golden appliqués. Thus, even during the day, the shining moons can still be seen.
The watchstraps for Liha gold watches are made of the best and finest leather in more than 170 operations. All the leather is worked by hand according to the elaborate procedures of the traditional leatherworking craft. An exact hand seam requires all the skills of a master craftsman. The traditional Swiss Vollumbugg method ensures that the highest quality standards are satisfied.
Apart from the intangible value of a Liha watch based on its tradition, history and craftmanship, Liha gold watches are characterised by the top quality materials used – in particular by the precious metals: Liha only uses alloys of the highest quality that have been proven in Germany to be ethically sourced. Due to the lasting value of the recious metals, Liha watches retain their value in an exceptional way.
The history of the watch brand Liha started in 1918 when Johann Liebhaber registered his one-man watchmaking business in the register of qualified craftsmen. In the 1930s, elaborately designed Liha watches were already worn in Europe, India, China, Africa and South America.
The company founder‘s son, Max Liebhaber, was born in 1928. Few months before the end of the Second World War he was drafted into the German Army. Three sons of the family of seven did not return from the war. In the following years, the sale of promotional items and watches began to take hold and in 1963 the company “Johann Liebhaber GbR” was established. Thus the Liha gold watch became much more than „just a watch“: it embodied the history of a unique family tradition.
Elegant, highly accurate and very reliable – Liha emphasised these attributes to promote its automatic clocks in the 1950s. Then as now, the golden clocks have always been characterised by the quality of their materials and fine watchmaking, combined with their clear lines and unique design. Johann Liebhaber created a clock for generations of people, laying the foundations for a strong family business.
Do some good – that was Max Liebhaber‘s philosophy which Liha still upholds today: with each watch sold, charities sponsored by the “Max Liebhaber Foundation” are supported. Thereby Liha customers not only purchase a very special watch but also do some good contributing to Liha‘s social commitment.
Max Liebhaber‘s philosophy remains at the heart of the institution bearing his name, the “Max Liebhaber Foundation“. Founded in 2012, it supports social, cultural and sporting projects.
