Mission: We wanted to build an affordable & durable timepiece with awesome product design for less than 300 €. We believe that good design has to be affordable for everyone.
Problem: We think it is annoying that affordable watches often don’t have a good design and medium or bad quality. Why?
Solution: The STERNGLAS timepiece
We designed a high-quality watch, tested by a German watchmaker (Staatl. geprüfter Uhrmachermeister). A durable domed mineral glass, stainless steel case and quartz movement made by Swiss manufacturer Ronda.
MOST IMPORTANT: Superb product design
We think the STERNGLAS watch is the best designed watch in the price segment up to 500 €. We have used traditional german design principles linked to Bauhaus-Design to design an remarkable timepiece.
- 38mm x 8mm stainless steel case with screwed caseback
- Domed & hardened mineral glass
- Swiss manufacturer Ronda movement 714-Ronda with date-function / mercury-free (Quecksilber frei)
- 3 ATM (bar) waterproof / 30m wasserdicht
- Oiled calf-leather with quick-release strap
- RohS & CE certified
MY WATCH DESIGN STORY
"I want to show the true character of a product. Creating products that don't interrupt people. No fancy colors to attract attention. Just geometrical forms, aesthetic colors, domed glass, steel and leather. Brought to perfect harmony.
The 90s and 00s were a time when flashy, coloured products came in place. Today we want to go back to the true essence of a product. Minimalism and Bauhaus-Design, this all comes from the desire to see the primary product design.
My passion for watches came up when I was 16 working for one of Germany's best watch brands. I've learned that you can only create a great product by constantly improving. I started designing watches 5 years ago, but it took me until today to create a product that is affordable, durable and well designed.
The STERNGLAS is a product created for everyone, who wants to wear a beautiful watch. Nothing else."
