  • Ultra-flat and understated

    Inspired by the Bauhaus movement, the dial is reduced and kept clear. Fine details, such as the concave curvature, nevertheless give the model an independent character.

The ultra-flat Bauhaus automatic watch

In watchmaking, the rule of thumb is: the flatter the mechanical movement, the more expensive the watch.

That is why mechanical watches with a case height of less than 10.0mm quickly cost over €1,000.

Through clever design, we have succeeded in creating a flat timepiece with a case height of only 8.5mm. This special design achievement was awarded the GERMAN DESIGN AWARD SPECIAL 2022 by the German Design Council.

Worry-free thanks to sapphire crystal

We only use sapphire crystal for our timepieces. This type of watch glass is usually found in the luxury watch market.

For a perfect view of the dial, we apply a double anti-reflective coating to the sapphire glass.

What exactly is sapphire crystal?

Sapphire is the third hardest transparent material in the world - after diamond and moissanite.

Curved sapphire crystal not only looks good, it makes the durable watch crystal even more resistant.

This makes it virtually impossible for your sapphire crystal watch to get scratched in everyday life.

Extraordinarily flat design

With a case diameter of 40 mm and a height of 8.5 mm, the Asthet is understated, yet sophisticated and exclusive.

Japanese premium automatic movement

The mechanical automatic movement 9015 from the Japanese manufacturer Miyota does not need any batteries at all. The wearer's natural hand movements cause the rotor to oscillate and thus the movement to run.

Thanks to 28,800 A/h (vibrations per hour), the second hand floats particularly smoothly over the concave dial.

What our customers say about us

Why we make Bauhaus watches?

In your search for a classic and durable watch, you are faced with 2 alternatives today:

1. you can buy a watch from a luxury manufacturer for a very high price, or
2. a watch from a trendy brand whose quality is as short-lived as the trend that made the brand popular.

Moin! I'm Dustin Fontaine, Founder of STERNGLAS...

When I worked in a watch manufactory during my school days and was looking for a watch for myself, I realised that there would have to be a 3rd alternative.

3. Since 2016, we have been breaking new ground and developing timeless Bauhaus-style watches that will outlive trends and continue to give pleasure for many years to come. And all that at a fair price.

In the meantime, over 53,000 watch lovers are convinced of our mission and our watch design has received several awards.

Find out what makes our timepieces so special by reading on.

Mechanical watchmaking for your wrist

With a flat height of 3.9mm and 42 hours of power reserve, the premium automatic movement 9015 from Miyota offers a stop-second and date display.

According to Miyota, the accuracy is max. -10/+30 sec/day.

Every timepiece is adjusted and tested by us after assembly, so that we are well below the maximum values.

Velvety soft leather bracelet made in Germany

In the middle of the Bavarian Forest, a small leather manufactory has been producing leather goods at the highest level for decades. It is punched, tanned and sewn with much love and care. Most of it is still done by hand.

When we held these leather bracelets in our hands for the first time, it was immediately clear to us: it doesn't get any better than this.

The velvety soft calfskin and the outstanding workmanship of our specially developed premium bracelets create a noticeably pleasant feeling when worn.

Easy strap change without tools

Thanks to the quick-change system, you can give your timepiece a new look in just 10 seconds:

1 — Slide the pin of the spring bar inwards.

2 — Pull the strap off the watch.

3 — Put on a new strap by sliding the pin inwards again and inserting the spring bar one after the other into the holes in the case.

Any questions left?

Can I order the watch with a different strap?

We will be happy to check whether we can realise your desired combination. Please contact us by e-mail at support@sternglas.com and we will help you personally.

How is the movement maintained?

We recommend that you have your watch serviced every 3-5 years if it is used daily.

Since there are oils and resins in the watch that can dry out over time, they should be replaced regularly, otherwise mechanical abrasion or bearing damage can occur in the movement. Seals should be checked every 5 years and replaced if necessary, crown and barrel every ten years. This ensures that you will enjoy your mechanical watch for a long time.

You can have your watch serviced directly by our watch service or by one of our specialist retail partners in your area.
