Luxury Bauhaus inspired design and the highest quality materials come together in the distinguished, yet versatile Model B3. It's more than a simple watch, it's your day-to-day, go-with-every-type-of-outfit watch.



Springbars / Quick release spring bars allow for a quick change of straps to match your current outfit.
Springbars / Quick release spring bars allow for a quick change of straps to match your current outfit.

In the last year, our team has developed dozens of watches designs until we found the perfect  one to represent the Bauhaus Era. Within the era, we’ve pulled inspiration from the Wassily chair designed by Marcel Breuer. Breuer was revolutionary in using bent tubular steel, which is both strong and lightweight, to form the structure of his chair. His innovation is reflected in the lugs of our watch, which bend and wrap around the case supporting both the case and straps. With your help, we’ll be able to bring this design and many more to the world. We’re absolutely positive you will realize this is the best watch you’ve ever owned.

Zeithuas was born in Chicago, a place where architecture has influenced and reflects the history of American culture and design. It is also the place of Mies van der Rohe, the final BAUHAUS director, who left a visible footprint on the Chicago Skyline.

What is BAUHAUS? 

Bauhaus is an approach, an idea, a way of combining all known artforms. 

The ingenious architect Walter Gropius had the idea and used it to design some of the most iconic buildings on earth. We have succeeded in combining modern BAUHAUS design, inspired by current trends, with BAUHAUS culture by continuing this tradition in Chicago, with a watch company.

Every detail is important to us. To ensure a premium quality standard of our watches, we have worked directly with some of the world's leading watch suppliers, which, for decades, have produced luxury watches for high-end brands selling at $ 2000+

Each Zeithaus watch has a sapphire coated mineral dome that is handcrafted in only two stages of creation. This ensures minimal risk of cracks, which makes our watches durable and ridiculously long lasting. The way our glass is designed and manufactured provides the aesthetic you need, without worrying about damage.


We know that even the most elegant watches require some protective materials. We also know that this plays an important role in how your watch will look and feel. 

That's why Zeithaus Watch Co. chose to work with a large watchmaker to bring you quality that can’t be beaten.

Movement

As part of our commitment to quality and value, we are proud to offer a Swiss Ronda 763 quartz movement. Ronda is an established Swiss brand that has been providing movements to high end watches since 1946. The 763 movement is a 5 jewel, fully serviceable movement that you will be proud own!

During everyday life people sweat, get caught in the rain, spill drinks and more, that’s why our case is assembled to resist liquid and continue functioning perfectly. 

The cases are designed with such precision that there are not even microscopic gaps between the internal components and the outside world.

We have a fair deal for you. 

If you feel that the watch did not meet your expectations, contact us and we will send you a 100% refund. So, what do you have to lose? Each model is limited edition so don't miss your favorite model.

We’ve removed all the middlemen and offer luxury watches, five to ten times cheaper than retail store pricing.

Our co-founder, Christian Soriaga, previously optimized and simplified the processes and management for an accessory company.

He has used this experience in the Zeithaus Watch fabrication process.

With this knowledge, we’ve made this price possible, offering you luxury watches for less than $200. 

Risks and challenges

Starting up a new brand is very challenging and exciting. We were facing many new problems constantly, but we believe the challenges will lead us to our dream - creating a truly unique watch.

Like any product other based business, time management is the basic requirement for us. We will strive to keep all the expected dates on track. However, we always have a possibility of running into some unexpected issues which can cause a delay. We will inform you immediately and keep you updated on any changes to the timeline.
