    Sternglas - A new Bauhaus inspired watch

    Their aim is clear: affordable, stylish watches for everyone. The Hamburg watch start-up STERNGLAS offers a simple, but quality design and ensures some fresh wind in the Bauhaus „branch“.

    The Sterglas journey though unknown waters began in 2016. Via the crowdfunding platform KICKSTARTER they collected around 16,500 € and started their online shop. Here you found their first Bauhaus watch in two different colors and with a black and brown strap and a bracelets as well. Swapping straps and bracelet is no big deal (quick out) so that the watch adapts perfectly to the corresponding clothing.

    In terms of pricing, STERNGLAS was and still is far ahead and reminds me of affordable Vertigo Berlin watches.
    The first quartz watches, already fitted with a sapphire crystal, retailed for 189 € (brown or black leather strap) and 199 € (mesh bracelet).

    Right now Sternglas is offering their first automatik Bauhaus watch. Fitted with an Miyota 8215 the watch retails for €309 (pre order, later €349).

    ... I guess I'm not quite getting the appeal here.

    The appeal is a nice minimalist auto for a low price. I'd be happier if it was a bit more but with a 9000-series.

    Re: Sternglas - A new Bauhaus inspired watch

    Ah, at last! A post about the new Sternglas Zeitmesser here in Watchuseek! I have been pondering about if I should get this watch for months now. I would really like to buy a Bauhaus style watch to complete my 3-piece collection of "Great 38s" (Watch #1: Diver's Watch - Japanese - Automatic - Seiko SKX013, Watch #2: Military Field Watch - Swiss - Handwind Mechanical - Hamilton Hamilton Khaki Field Officer Mechanical H69419933, Watch #3: Bauhaus Design Inspired Watch)


    I haven't found any reviews for this watch apart from Kaminsky http://......./2GkRtRX and a review on YouTube but the guy doing the review was speaking Deutsch/German. Unfortunately YouTube did not have support to translate what the reviewer was saying to English. Shame!


    In photos it looks really nice and well built but would have liked to see it in person. Luckily, after discovering this post here on Watchuseek and prior to posting this comment, I came across someone who one. And wow! It looks nice in the photos, but even better in person! I now even more convinced to go ahead and buy this! What's not to like about the Sternglas Zeitmesser?


    Make: Sternglas Zeitmesser
    My Preferred Model: Bauhaus White Edition
    Country of Origin German
    Design: Bauhaus design inspired watch
    Occassion: Dress/Smart Casual - Very versatile!
    Purchase Price - £160.00
    Movement Type: Battery Powered Quartz
    Movement Caliber: Ronda Caliber 714
    Dial Colour: Eggshell White
    Seconds Hands: No - I actually like that this watch does not have the seconds hand. I personally perfer it if the watch is quartz, you don't have that annoying ticking visually and
    Date Display: Yes - Would have perferred if they placed the date window at the 6 O'clock position as it make the dial symmetrical and more balanced. But as it is is fine too. Not a deal breaker.

    Case Diameter (mm): 38mm - In my honest opinion, this would be the best size for a man's watch especially for small wrists (I have 6.25 inch wrists)
    Case Thickness (mm): 8mm - It's great that this watch is really thin, as it would have less "watch bulge" when worn under a shirt cuff, and in winter a sweater/jumper over the shirt cuff sleeve. I am seeing myself wearing this in the winter more often than my SKX013 which is a really thick watch!
    Case Length Lug to Lug (mm): 46mm
    Band/Bracelet Width (mm) 20mm - This is great as my other watches (SKX013 and Hamilton Khaki Field Mechcanical) both have
    Default Watch Band/Bracelet - Brown Leather Strap which is my preferred colour, but you can buy other straps. It's good that they used quick release spring bars which changing straps
    Crystal: Sapphire - Scratch resistance. Always looks new! What more can you ask for?
    Water Resistance - 50 meters - Just enough, you wont go swimming with a dress watch would you? At least when it rains (lightly), there are no worries!


    Is it a Junghans Max Bill? No, but for me it close enough and the price difference (Max Bill - £490 vs. Sterngla Zeitmesser - £160) is very appealing!

    Have a look at the Tale of the Tape between Sternglas Zeitmesser vs. Junghans Max Bill 041/4464.00


    Watch Design Type Bauhaus Dress Watch Bauhaus Dress Watch
    Make Sternglass Zeitmesser Junghans
    Model Bauhaus White Face Max Bill 041/4464.00
    Country of Origin German German (Made)
    Occassion Dress / Smart Casual Dress / Smart Casual
    Price £168 around £440
    Movement Type Quartz Quartz
    Movement Caliber Ronda Caliber 714 J645.33 (In-house)
    Dial Colour White White
    With seconds hands? No Yes
    Date Display Yes, at 3 o'clock Yes, at 3 o'clock
    Case Diameter 38mm 38mm
    Case Thickness 8mm 8mm
    Case Length (lug to lug) 46mm 40mm
    Band/Bracelet Oiled Calf Leather Strap Calf Leather Strap
    Crystal Domed Sapphire Domed Plexiglass
    Water Resistance 50 meters 30 meters


    However, to compare this with the likes of Daniel Wellington, MVMT, Vincero would be insulting to Sternglas! Just look at the specs!


    Overall, this watch is of high value for its price. And I can say is that I am so excited to add this to my collection and I very much look forward to the joy of wearing this in rotation with my other watches!

    L2L of the Max Bill is wrong imho. Case diameter is 38mm. If you are right the lugs would be only 1mm in length. Don‘t think this is true.

    I thought of the same thing too. But I found that info on the internet. I then searched it in YouTube, TGV actually has a video on the Max Bill https://youtu.be/wjwa64GtFiQ at around 6:46 of the video, he measured the L2L using a digital caliper and it actually measured 39.64mm
