EINSTOFFEN Watches Display the Best of Beautiful Alpine Style

Ever since our ancient ancestors first walked this Earth, we have been inspired by nature. Thousands of years ago, natural wonders were the subject of cave paintings. Fast forward to the 15th century, and Leonardo da Vinci studied birds in order to design his own flying machine. Even today, in this age of technology, nature still provides the starting point for many designs. Take the new EINSTOFFEN watches — these timepieces combine Swiss design with natural materials and alpine style.

– Swiss-made wood and metal watches with street fashion style

– Several looks to choose from and two different straps

– Ronda movement inside sapphire crystal, waterproof to 5 ATM

Alpine Style

Back in 2008, four friends from the east of Switzerland set out to build a new urban fashion brand. EINSTOFFEN began with eyewear, but quickly branched out into new niches. Although the company focuses on cosmopolitan style, it credits Mother Nature as a co-designer on every new product.

This tradition continues with the new range of EINSTOFFEN watches. Much like the Swiss Alps, these timepieces were not constructed overnight. In fact, the folks at EINSTOFFEN have been refining these designs for years.

The end result is a series of watches that will appeal to any eye. Furthermore, each watch is built to endure.

Natural Looks

EINSTOFFEN’s watches are split into three separate collections.

The Automatic collection puts the latest Swiss Ronda movements inside handsome steel or natural wood. Strictly limited to 50 pieces per design, these watches are mechanical masterpieces. EINSTOFFEN has used walnut and sandalwood in the Maggia models, while the Altenalptürm timepieces are crafted from stainless steel.

Each of the watches in this collection has its own refined face, covered by sapphire crystal. In addition, you can admire the movement via a see-through back. With dark and light versions available, you should find your perfect style.

The Wood and Metal collection offers a similar feel, but with a few key differences. Firstly, these watches count the seconds with a separate dial. The Tamaro model also adds a splash of color with the hands. You can choose from three different face sizes — 43mm for men, 38mm and 30mm for women.

EINSTOFFEN’s Steel collection pays homage to the great Swiss tradition of watchmaking with classical designs. But don’t think that these pieces are old hat.

These cases are made from 316L stainless steel. The classic face resides behind sapphire-coated, scratch-resistant mineral crystal. Beneath this cover, a precision quartz movement keeps perfect time.

Of course, it would have been nice to see the automatic Ronda Mecano movement in all three collections. That said, EINSTOFFEN has cut no corners with its choice of lesser Ronda movements. You are still getting premium components at an affordable price.

Durable Refinement

While the style of each collection varies, all EINSTOFFEN watches share a few key attributes.

For starters, every timepiece is crafted to the highest standard. EINSTOFFEN offers a five-year warranty on production faults, which applies worldwide. Additionally, these watches are shock-proof, and waterproof to 5 ATM.

Furthermore, the watches all come with quick-change straps. You can choose between metal mesh and sustainably-sourced Italian leather.

”EINSTOFFEN is inspired by nature. In Switzerland, gorgeous natural scenery is always just a stone’s throw away. Nature plays a big part in our daily life and it has been an integral part of our brand since day one.”

“We named all our wooden timepieces after Swiss forests and lakes. The fine wood that encircles the casings evokes the feeling of one of those last warm days of fall. The colors of the watch hands are based on the calming cobalt blue of a mountain lake and the black and grey of its pebbles.” — EINSTOFFEN on Kickstarter
