Showcasing the latest watch models and emerging trends in watchmaking: that has been the mission of the Munichtime watch show for eleven years, a staple in the event calendar of anyone with a love for premium mechanical wristwatches. On the last weekend in October, visitors perusing the exhibits on more than 15,000 square feet were wowed by displays of outstanding horological innovation. Prominent among the exhibitors was Leinfelder Uhren München. Making full use of the glamorous setting of the Bayerischer Hof luxury hotel, the watch manufacture unveiled three new models.
Leinfelder Uhren München’s motto for this year’s Munichtime: great things come in threes. The Munich-based company showed off three new models to interested visitors at the prestigious watch fair. Strikingly lit on the gallery of the hall, the Leinfelder booth was well-frequented throughout the event.
The Leinfelder Benno’s dial is graced by the best-known symbol of the Bavarian capital: the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady, also known in German simply as the Frauenkirche. The two iconic 323-feet-high domed towers are realized in a pencil drawing on the dial. On the occasion of the centennial of the proclamation of the Free State of Bavaria and the bicentennial of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Bavaria, Leinfelder Uhren München pays homage to this beloved Bavarian monument with a very limited collection.
Wearers of the Leinfelder Elysium Steel, in turn, are sure to make a splash, with the colorful, iridescent dials drawing the gaze of those around them. Several layers with varying finishes give the dial an elegant, three-dimensional appearance.
And with the new PopArt, Leinfelder Uhren presents vibrant wearable art. Designed for collectors and art lovers and produced in very limited quantities, this three-hander is a tribute to the pop art movement. With vibrant colors on the face and strap that are sure to draw attention to the wearer’s wrist, these watches recall the works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring.
