Karl Falk Einzeiger-Single Hand Watch with Swiss Automatic ETA 2824 Movement.

The Einzeiger watches have a single hour hand which denotes the time in 5 minute intervals with every 15 minutes marked by a more prominent line. The red tip of the hand enables precision time reading. The dial is simple and uncluttered, allowing clear and concise time reading. The glass backs allow the viewing of the fantastic mechanical ETA movement.

This watch is the signature piece of the Karl Falk collection which are mechanical single hand watches in a range called the "Einzeiger" which means "Single Hand" in German.

Drawing inspiration from the first pocket watches created in 1524 by Peter Henlein, the "Einzeiger" watches are a classic design example featuring a range of carefully thought out design details resulting in a precision made watch that is beautiful in its simplicity yet outstanding in its functionality.

The Karl Falk Watches are German Engineered and actually made in Pforzheim, Germany. The watches are made using only the best materials. The case is made from brushed stainless steel and the movement is the world-renowned Swiss Automatic ETA 2824.

The movements are deliberately undecorated so that the aesthetics of the entire watch adhere to the concept of simplicity yet functionality which is why we like this watch so much.

The watch comes fitted with a black leather band which has side air vents and a signed brushed steel pin buckle. The watch also comes with an additional stainless steel strap and a watch tool kit to enable easy interchanging between the leather and stainless steel strap and shortening and lengthening of the stainless steel strap as required.

The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal glass face which scratch resistant and unmarked, which means the watch can be worn on a daily basis in most circumstances without worrying about potential scratches or damage.

This watch is also water resistant to 5 ATM which means that the watch is guaranteed water resistant under certain conditions such a splashing, showering or swimming.

The tool kit with this watch comprises an eye loupe, watch knife, watch band pin remover, metal tweezers, spring bar tool and screwdriver.

All the Karl Falk watches are guaranteed against material or manufacturing defects for 2 years from date of purchase so this watch comes with the remainder of that guarantee which ends in October 2014.

For those whom are interested in the history behind Karl Falk please read further......

Karl Falk was born in 1874 and lived in Stuttgart, Germany. His passion about mechanical watches and their functionality has passed down through generations of his family.

Karl Falk Watches is a family run business, now headed by the great-granddaughter of Karl Falk. The Karl Falk watches are manufactured in Pforzheim, Germany but there head office is based in the UK.

Inspired by the evolution of the first pocket watches crafted in 1524, Karl Falk Watches brought the "Einzeiger", a classic design example, featuring a single hand as symbolised by early timepieces and we hope you will like it as much as we did when we first saw it.

Be quick and get yourself a bargain as this watch is almost half the price of a new one yet only approximately 9 months old but still looks almost as new!
