Haute Horlogerie Ambassadors
Christian Hübner´s excellent reputation as an established watch specialist extends far beyond the borders of Austria. He has taken over the company at an early age from his father, who started the business in 1914 in the very center of Vienna.
The Hübner company is considered in Vienna as something of an institution and as a proven expert in timepieces. The company stocks an unrivalled range of brands and can offer connoisseurs particularly fine items.
It is a family-run business supported by an ambitious team of staff. The perfectly equipped workshops conform to international standards, allowing highly qualified watchmakers to carry out even the most elaborate maintenance services and repairs on the premises.
Besides the original store on „Graben“ in Venna there are two branches in Linz and Wels offering high quality time-pieces and jewellery.
Family Business at Hübner
Companies with a long tradition can, and indeed must, keep up with the times. This is particularly true for an ambitious Austrian family business committed to offering exquisite, mostly mechanical watches and fine jewellery. The company – founded in 1914 - is undoubtedly a leading watch specialist with international reputation, owned by Christian Hübner and his daughters Andrea Daum-Hübner and Astrid Stüger-Hübner.

The passion for exquisite jewelry and watch-making was instilled in Wolfgang Stoess as a child growing up in a family of jewelers. The main focus of his education was learning the multifaceted craft of a goldsmith, which included gem setting, gemology and diamond grading. The skills of fine watch-making, and its related techniques, he has learned over the course of several internships and visits within Switzerland (Zurich, Geneva, Vallee de Joux) and Germany (Glashuette).
He studied, among other skills:
- - Goldsmith at Academy of Applied Science, Hanau (Germany)
- - Gemology at DGemG, Idar Oberstein (Germany)
- - Diamant Grading at DGemG, Idar Oberstein (Germany)
- - Jewelry Design at GIA, New York (USA)
- - Business-Studies at University of Applied Sciences, Wiesbaden (Germany)

Fine jewels and watches since 1886
Wilhelm Stoess opened its doors to the city of Berlin in 1886. Within the first generation, Wilhelm Stoess, founder and Wolfgang's great-grandfather, established it as a boutique renowned for fine jewelry. His son successfully maintained the goldsmith shop until the Second World War. In the wake of the devastation, he relocated the business to Wiesbaden in 1946. Now in its fourth generation, Wilhelm Stoess remains in Wiesbaden within a wonderful neoclassical building. On two newly renovated floors, we offer a full range of services including watch-making, goldsmithing, jewelry-design and gemology.
