Starry Heavens

A fixed idea becomes a work of art

The "starry sky" project has always been in our heads, but it was too expensive to implement. Of course, it is technically possible to create a watch with a starry sky and of the highest quality. However, such watches are hardly affordable. But we wanted to make such a work of art accessible to everyone without having to sacrifice high quality. So without overpriced manufacture movement and without real enamel dials, or even rotating glass dials. Not everyone can spend € 30,000 or even € 200,000 for such a watch from our competitors. We had no problems when looking for a case, glass, hands or straps of a similar high quality as the expensive competition. Our manufactory watch case can measure up to all cases in the world in terms of quality, feel and appearance. Our domed sapphire crystal is one of the most expensive and best crystals in the watch industry. Our domed hands are made of stainless steel and then rhodium-plated. Only the most expensive watch manufacturers in the world have such hands. We only use alligator leather from a German leather manufacturer. The same leather straps are also mounted on the priceless watches from Switzerland. Only the movement and the dial had to be compromised to make the watch affordable. We had an easy time with the movement. Anyone who needs a manufactured movement and would like to pay € 30,000 upwards will find it elsewhere. We use the well-known ETA Unitas 6498-1 manual wind movement. A Swiss movement that has been built and refined since 1960. There is no better Swiss watch movement that would be affordable. We only reached our limits with the dial. A dial with a starry sky requires insanely expensive tool costs. So the project didn't seem to be feasible and was hidden somewhere in the back drawer. Until we had a fixed idea by chance. We were able to paint the dial by hand using a very simple but equally innovative process. We wanted to paint the small seconds without stars and the rest should be provided with small and large stars. As you know it from the starry sky. Since we paint the dials by hand, each one is unique and each results in a different (fictional) constellation. We have rarely created a more sophisticated looking watch than this.
