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).
The first batch of their automatic watch iwas already sold out after only 5 days. However, the watch can still be ordered in advance with a black or white dial. Delivery date of the 2nd batch will be June 10, 2018.
