4. Unmatched Durability Meets Design: The Sapphire Crystal Advantage

We only use sapphire crystal for all our STERNGLAS 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 crystal.

Renowned for its absolute scratch resistance, sapphire crystal ensures your watch remains as pristine as the day you received it. This exceptional material also embodies our commitment to blending robust durability with elegant design. Experience the sapphire advantage and wear your timepiece with confidence, every day.

5. Award-Winning Aesthetics: Where Design Meets Excellence

Dive into the realm where design transcends to become art, reflected in our collection of award-winning timepieces. Our relentless pursuit of design excellence has been recognized globally, bestowing upon us some of the most esteemed awards in the industry:

  • Red Dot Award 2020
  • iF Design Award 2020 & 2023
  • German Design Award 2022 & 2024
These accolades underscore our commitment to not just creating watches, but crafting timepieces that embody creativity, innovation, and design excellence.

6. Exceptional Value: Where Quality Meets Affordability

Discover the perfect balance of great German Design, premium quality and durability at a fair price. You save money, nerves & time due to the certified, high quality materials of your STERNGLAS timepiece. Thanks to the high-quality and robust movements, you can enjoy your watch for a long time. Furthermore, all STERNGLAS watches are equipped with 316L stainless steel, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and are waterproof up to at least 5 ATM.

In addition to these foundational qualities, we infuse every timepiece with an unparalleled attention to detail. This manifests in the fine details and exquisite engravings found on our case backs, transforming them from mere timekeepers into personal mementos.

Should anything still not be right, the watch can be opened and checked easily by a watchmaker through the screwed back case, ensuring that the beauty and functionality of your STERNGLAS timepiece endure.

7. Core Precision: The Heartbeat of Our Timepieces

The movement, the heartbeat of every watch, is crucial not only to its functionality but also to its design and the intricacies of its complications. At STERNGLAS, we recognize the paramount importance of this component, which is why we entrust the development of the movements to the world's most distinguished manufacturers, each with decades of experience and a legacy of innovation.

For most of our quartz watches, the core is powered by movements from the Swiss company Ronda. Renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship, fairness in production, and the refinement of their movements, Ronda stands as a paragon of precision. These movements ensure that our battery-powered timepieces operate with utmost accuracy, reflecting our commitment to quality and reliability.

Conversely, our automatic watches come to life through the kinetic energy-driven movements from the renowned manufacturer Miyota. Miyota's movements are celebrated for their precision and reliability, holding their ground against their Swiss counterparts. Their international reputation for excellence speaks volumes, highlighting the global standard we adhere to in every timepiece.

In selecting these movements, we prioritize not just performance but also ease of maintenance. We understand the concern and cost associated with servicing an automatic watch – a necessity that can be both nerve-wracking and expensive, often costing hundreds of euros for luxury brands. Our goal is to mitigate these concerns by providing movements that are exceptionally low-maintenance, without compromising on quality or performance. Should the need arise, however, we back our commitment with an uncomplicated, in-house repair service, ensuring that your STERNGLAS timepiece continues to function flawlessly for years to come.

8. Eco-Elegant: Pioneering Sustainability in Every Piece
