2. STEINMEYER Watches
STEINMEYER is a brand of L`Duchen Montres SA Watch Company.
First STEINMEYER watches were produced in 2006 and were dedicated to the most popular sports: snowboarding, mountain skiing, ice hockey, mountain biking, etc. The sport theme of STEINMEYER watches is reflected in materials used for their manufacturing. The watches are made of stainless steel, which is the strongest and most reliable material for the production of watch cases and bands.
All stainless steel models are equipped with mineral glass that suits better for use during active sport training with its lots of shocks and damages, unlike sapphire crystal, which is hard and scratch-resistant, but fragile. Straps for most of the models are made of PU. This material is not damaged by water, unlike the leather, so the watches can be safely used for water and winter sports. PU straps are easy to clean, they are light and non-allergenic.
STEINMEYER watches are designed for young active and dynamic people, who prefer extreme sports, freedom and outdoor activities. The brand’s philosophy is reflected in the watches design.
The STEINMEYER design studio is inspired by the most popular sports, and it reflects their style and philosophy in the design of corresponding models. Case back of each collection is decorated with engraved image of corresponding sport.
In 2014 STEINMEYER introduced new mechanical timepieces (Miyota movement), both for ladies and gentlemen, and a new line of quartz watches in plastic cases of various bright colours, also Military style collection: original and functional design, plastic case and strap with military print.
The STEINMEYER watches are characterized by their democratic pricing that in addition to all other advantages makes them very attractive for fans of sports style.
