We traveled back in time to bring you this rarely seen masterpiece. In fact, this classic watch was nearly lost to history books. In 1923 a small European watchmaker in the little known region of Steinhausen started manufacturing this rare timepiece. So rare in fact that only a handful of these timepieces were ever made - entirely by hand. Watch antique experts and historians have estimated that an original kinetic watch would have a value of well over $300,000 today.
Beyond the breathtakingly detailed design what makes the Steinhausen unique? The Steinhausen was one of the first watches with the ability to display day, month and date with stars and moon graphically depicting AM and PM.
No one has ever attempted to recreate this classic original until now. Every facet of this incredibly handsome timepiece has been painstakingly reproduced down to every detail including the graceful, sweeping second hand movement. The uniquely shaped case and buttons are crafted of brushed and polished stainless steel. The handsome ivory face is accentuated by striking roman numerals. Of course it was also updated with kinetic power. Just like the original mechanical movement designed by inventor John Harwood in 1923, this 35 jewel mechanical automatic winding watch never needs batteries and never needs to be wound. It is constantly charging itself with the movement of your body.
Every detail was carefully engineered to replicate the original classic. With a limited edition issue it will not be long before this classic disappears for another 80 years. Also includes both brown and black interchangeable fine leather wristbands for different looks.
Hand-cut precious sapphire gemstones have been set into the buttons of the cabochon crown, creating a rich luster. Be the first to wear this remarkable new addition to the world famous Steinhausen family of timepieces and accessories.
