Leonardo Returning to the Steinhausen Vault

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Leonardo Skeleton Face The Swiss movement Leonardo Skeleton was brought back for an ultra-limited edition release in 2009. While we are pleased to have sold out the inventory in such a short period, we are saddened that this handsome watch is returning to the Steinhausen vault after having been one of the most praised watches of the year.

The first Leonardo went on sale more than 50 years ago and was one of the most sought after Steinhausen signature watches of the time. Reintroduced in 2004 with just 100 watches made, the Leonardo was a favorite among Steinhausen collectors and those new to the name. We decided to reintroduce this classic Skeleton timepiece after constant requests from customers for this special skeleton watch. Only 80 Leonardo Skeleton watches were available for sale starting in beginning of 2009 and now the watch is no longer available.

However, we have several new skeleton models on the way for 2009 and 2010. The most notable are the pocket watches we will be reintroducing after more than 60 years of hiding! We dusted off some immaculate designs and have replicated everything down to the original Swiss movement that is so incredibly accurate that you’ll be setting your other watches to these pocket watches.
