Steiner Limited – customize your own watch
The man behind the Sea-Dweller Jacques Piccard Edition has more good thoughts. His own watch, the Steiner Limited, can be modified to the clients wants. And… it’s the originally affirmed chronometer from the Netherlands.
In north-west Europe, and perhaps around the world, Steiner Maastricht is renowned for their tremendous assortment of entirely collectable vintage watches. Steiner Maastricht additionally offered the all around sold-out Sea-Dweller Jacques Piccard Edition, likewise called Single Red Deep Sea . The absolute last one was unloaded a month ago and got a cost of 40,000 Swiss Francs. That’s more than twofold the retail cost of just under 20,000 Swiss Francs.
Steiner began offering their own watches in 1980. Presently a-days more watch stores have their own line of watches, simply consider Wempe or Steffen in Antwerp. Just Steiner Maastricht offers the likelihood to redo your watch to your own ideas.
After 2 years of building up the Steiner24 was delivered. This watch was accessible in rose gold and in platinum, restricted to just 24 of each model. Presently there after a hardened steel restricted release of only 50 watches was presented. Since October 2006 the new Steiner assortment is accessible and now one can pick between the 39 en 42 mm measurement, tempered steel, rose or white gold, and platinum renditions with 8 individual dial plates.
More than 50 sections have been planned and created for the Steiner Limited. The crown has an engraved star which is the seal of the city of inception, Maastricht, headquarters of Steiner. The dials to browse are white lacquer, silver, brushed silver, mother of pearl, dark green, earthy colored, blue and plated dark. I especially like the dark green and the dark dial.
After choosing your decisions, the watch is being hand-made and won’t leave the workshop before being completely confirmed, checked and tested.
The sapphire precious stone is against relfective covered and the sapphire gem for the situation back gives a reasonable perspective on the Valjoux 7751. This notable and entirely solid development offers a chronograph work, schedule, 24 hour hand and moon stage marker. The day and month in Dutch 🙂
The Steiner Limited is additionally accessible as Official Certified Chronometer. At Wenge’s in Glasshütte (Germany) the developments are tried for 15 days, as indicated by the severe Din 8319 models. These standards are a lot stricter than the Swiss based C.O.S.C. use.
Of course I needed to make a wrist shot of Philipp’s own Steiner Limited (sorry for the awful photo).
The Steiner Limited in steel begins at € 4,500 and in rose gold at € 10,000. Investigate the Steiner Limited site to see the diverse dial and metal options.
