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.
