Outstanding value for money
Uhrenwerft is Hentschel’s small series collection comprising the classic Longitude model with centre second, date display and navigation compass delineation.
The streamlined case is made from polished stainless steel and features gentle curves that hug close to the wrist for a comfortable wear.
Uhrenwerft watches are hand-assembled and feature uncluttered, clean dials, beautifully flame-blued hands, and domed sapphire crystal case fronts that are cut from a solid crystal block (not temperature formed as you find on most other watches in this price range) thus making them clearer and sturdier.
The vintage 1970s, new old stock ETA 2824-2 chronometer-grade movements are overhauled by Hentschel to ensure optimal functionality and durability. Each movement is fully disassembled and hand-lubricated with fresh oils before being reassembled and rigorously tested for 1000 hours in different positions – attention to detail that you will find hard to match for this price.
