Tweet Friday and Tweet Monday Coming to Steinhausen

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Black Friday is a trending topic on Twitter right now. Black Monday should be trending as well. For decades companies have been living and dying by the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Internet introduced Black Monday because so many people do their Internet shopping on the Monday after Thanksgiving when they get back to work.

2009 will be the first holiday season with a solid Twitter user base. We’ve started a Twitter account and have plans for some exclusive promotions available only to Twitter and Facebook followers/fans!

Steinhausen Tasche Collection Has Arrived

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Just a month ago I was talking about the eminent arrival of a new Steinhausen timepiece pulled from the archives of Ulrich Van-Heusen. It seems like this year has gone by so quickly, and the last 30 days are no exception. While the announcement of the new Tasche (German for pocket) Collection won’t receive the same fanfare as the new Motorola Droid, it is still a marvelous timepiece worthy of attention.

The first arrival is the Tasche Enrich, which is my personal favorite. There is just something about the remote second hand that is so unique. It really is an amazingly handsome piece of craftsmanship!

The Remote Sweeping Second hand make the Tasche Enrich a watch to attract attention from those who appreciate a fine pocket watch.

We stayed true to Ulrich’s original design as best as we could. We even included the butterfly case, which allows you to open the back after you’ve opened the front, revealing the gears and¬†immaculate¬†movement inside.

A limited number of each Tasche Collection watch are being made. The timepiece comes with a stainless steel chain that is sturdy and sure to last for generations.

My favorite part about this watch (besides the sweeping hand) is the ticking. Nothing in the world sounds quite the same as a mechanical pocket watch.

Of course, pocket watches are rarely seen on anyone who is not wearing a three piece suit. Steinhausen plans on changing that soon with a new accessory that Ulrich envisioned decades ago as he saw the business world moving towards a more casual work environment. This new accessory will be coming soon!

A Classic Pre-Dating the Original Steinhausen

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Every once in a while we all crack open the old attic to explore our old memories or discovery the memories of generations passed. When you hear the name Steinhausen, 1923 instantly comes to mind. We have long treasured the history and legend of our name. This has never been more important to our company since a distant relative of the Van-Heusen family brought the Steinhausen name back to the family!

I’ll have to admit that I was bit of a kid in a candy store when I first got to see some of the antique designs of the Van-Heusen family with my Steinhausen colleagues. The amount of detail that went into the Steinhausen Classic is astonishing, an immaculate masterpiece. However, nothing could prepare me for what we uncovered when we dusted off an old set of sketches we found nestled away in a family study. It was like stumbling upon one of the greatest treasures in timepiece history!

Based upon the information included with the sketches, these unbelievable designs predated the Steinhausen Classic wristwatch by at least 20 years, making them one of Ulrich Van-Heusen’s first designs as a watchmaker. We painstakingly duplicated every detail down to the exact material and mechanical specifications of the movement to bring you one of the most impressive Steinhausen timepieces in history.

A limited quantity of these timepieces will be available for the first time in November 2009 and are sure to be the desire of serious watch collectors. Of course, I’m going to tease you with a picture of just the box. I’ll leave it up to your imagination as to what is inside, but as is always the case with Steinhausen, you won’t be disappointed.
