    Now the time has come for Sterglas Zeitmesser to show you a new model STERNGLAS KANTON. The Inhorgenta just raised the curtain and Sternglas is showcasing their new product in Munich.

    For Sternglas it is a real premiere to announce: Their first automatic watch made in Switzerland is now available KANTON!

    With this watch Dustin and his team fulfilled the wish of the Sternglas community for a Swiss Made automatic Sternglas and here it is.

    The KANTON is fitted with the Swiss movement STP 1-11 offering a power reserve of +/- 44 hours.
    and of course, the KANTON comes with a disply back (sapphire crystal) which allows you to see the Swiss automatic movement working. The KANTON STP 1-11 comes with blued screws and a gold-colored „Sternglas Zeitmesser“ engraving on the rotor.

    The polished 39mm stainless steel case with a height of 10 mm fits well on the wrist and under a shirt’s sleeve.
    The KANTON is available with a new quick-release strap made of leather in brown and black, the stiching is done in the same color.

    The Luminova coated hands and dots enable legibility even at night.

    Retail: €799

    I really wish rule #5 would be updated to require transparency on the part of WUS/Mods when they have allowed and are being compensated for posting sponsored content.

    I have no problem with the sponsored content. We all have to make a living. I would just like some transparency that is becoming more common on other social media outlets (which is how I know this one is part of a campaign, almost identical posts in other feeds today about SG).

    My thoughts too.

    Specs and design look good though, as does the date placement.

    Sleestax raises a valid point. I had always thought these reviews, and the terrific photos, were solely produced by Mike, but, yes, these same images, and descriptions, have been posted on instagram and elsewhere, kind of crossing boarders between fact and fiction, especially since they are not site sponsors, to my knowledge--curiosity heightened in the presentation, lessened in the product.

    I'm guessing the watch is actually made / assembled by Palladium or Grovana, similar to Steinhart.

    they only need to do that if they are in US since there is an actual law on the books for influencer endorsements, thats why instagrammers tag their posts with #sponsoredcontent #ad in order to comply

    Fairly sure Mike lives in Germany or somewhere in Europe since he pretty much just reviews German watches..so most likely they don't have any rules on that

    Plus who cares, the mods volunteer their time to run this insane asylum, if they want to make a few bucks posting announcements from brands so be it...plus usually its brands I haven't heard of, so there is def value in what he does...so I say live and let live

    This is not a sponsored post. It is an Inhorgenta preview using some text of their newsletter. I will meet Dustin and the team tomorrow. More pics and info will follow soon.
    If you do not like my post(s), just skip. Your assumption I make a living on this is completely wrong and as far as I am concerned I think it is defamatory as well.

    Sponsored posts are to be found on our HP and they are marked as such.

    Copy ? No. There‘s no Junghans looking identical.

    Bauhaus inspired ? Yes, absolutely.
