Few things say as much about a person as his watch. Some people just wear their watches to tell the time. For them, a simple wristwatch for less than twenty dollars is the right choice. But for the rest of us, a watch means so much more. For us, the jewelry on our wrist is a mirror of our taste, our personality, and our preferences. Wearing a SÖNER says that time is important and that I choose my timepiece with care.

We first launched the brand a couple of years ago, offering only quartz watches. Since then, we have matured as a company and watch brand. we have listened to feedback from the watch community, we now know, more than ever, what we want to offer. We want to offer the Momentum, a modern and minimalistic designed, and affordable automatic watch that combines originality with high quality.
The name SÖNER
SÖNER was founded by Freddie Palmgren to challenge the status quo of round-dial watches and bring something that’s both original and truly timeless. Created as a tribute to his sons William and Widar, the brand captures the father-son bond which was first represented by the introduction of the LEGACY collection and showcased through its distinct logo featuring the initials SW and three dots which represent the founder and his two sons. SÖNER means sons in Swedish and reflects the founders strong belief in the importance of family and the idea of a watch that can be passed on to future generations.
Through high-quality timepieces that stand the test of time, SÖNER aims to create timepieces that can be passed on through generations - an idea that’s printed on the box of each watch - “A man's legacy is the stories he leaves behind…”
The carefully designed timepieces capture the essence of the 1920s art deco movement, inspired by the square and rectangular shapes that dominate architecture and contemporary design even today. From rectangular windows to screens, phones to doorways, each SÖNER watch is aesthetically inspired by the symmetry of quadrilaterals.
Inspired by the iconic JLC Reverso and Cartier Tank, our timepieces blend the best of art deco and modern watchmaking to create something that is truly unique. The thick stainless-steel case with its beefed-up lugs pushes through the dominance of round shapes and challenges the world of fashion to embrace the square again.
Reinforced with a anti-reflective sapphire glass and powered by a reliable automatic movement and available in vibrant colors, SÖNER watches are statement pieces that leave a mark wherever you go. The minimalist designs add the perfect amount of balance to your outfits and give it that sophisticated art deco charm.
Quality Without Breaking The Bank
Few watches in the same segment have such a unique design and high quality while being affordable at a moderate price.
The case of a SÖNER is cast from a high-quality (316L) solid piece of stainless steel. It sits comfortably around the wrist with its arched back and easily disappears under the cuff. The watch closes tightly down to 100 meters pressure (10ATM), so you can easily take a swim with your SÖNER. The luminous (C3) hands and dial are protected by the super hard, anti-reflective (2 layer, inside), and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, one of the world’s hardest materials that can only be scratched with a diamond or another sapphire. Below the dial sits the high-performance Japanese automatic movement Miyota cal. 9039 from the famous Citizen Miyota, which guarantees many carefree years of accurate time. As the finishing touch, we have fitted the watch with a custom made crown with our logo embossed on its top.
Born on the Swedish west coast, our watches follow the Swedish tradition of design and quality, the same fantastic quality that has made Sweden known all over the world. Let the Swedish reputation for quality and exquisite design speak for itself. Our automatic watches, with their elegant and radiant dials, are guaranteed to impress. Every watch tells a story and brings your outfit to life, showcasing true originality and a refined sense of style.
Miyota cal. 9039 the perfect choice
After endless discussions, we finally found what we feel completes the Momentum. In the Miyota 9039, we found the ultimate combination of a modern, thin, reliable, high-beating, and well-known movement that we were looking for. The Japanese Citizen Miyota caliber 9039 is a 24-jewel automatic movement that was introduced to the market in 2018. As a member of the 9000 family of movements, this caliber is part of Miyota's Premium automatic line.

The response from buyers of our original quartz collection has been remarkable. Here you can read a few quotes from our amazing customers. Since the base and the quality of the Momentum is the same as our quartz collection, we are confident that this trend will continue.

Throughout the campaign, we will engage in a dialogue with our communities to finally arrive at the best combination of function, design, and price. The specification you see here at the moment is the one that illustrates our minimum specification, we strive for top quality and are working to improve specifications where possible.

We have the design, the components, the suppliers, the organization, and logistics in place and ready to go. But! we don't have the funds to take our brand to this next level.
