Steinhausen did not invent time, they just perfected it. The early 1900's, was an era in which only wealthy individuals could afford a timepiece. They were custom-made solely for influential people. Ulrich Van-Heusen was a highly-touted watchmaker, inventor, and architect laboring day after day, attempting to build the world's first automatic calendar watch. In 1923 he completed his first automatic calendar watch, setting the stage for Steinhausen to produce some of the finest watches
ever made across the world today. They are known for their craftmanship, accuracy, and durability. Steinhausen has mastered the art of creating a watch that combines old world style with a modern appeal.
