There’s a new stylish homage to Hamburg’s historic Speicherstadt (literally: ‘City of Warehouses’, meaning warehouse district): the new Hamburg Automatic dark blue bronze. A timepiece created for stylish watch enthusiasts who wish to carry the unique charm and history of the Speicherstadt with them.
This new timepiece is a charming combination of the popular predecessor editions, Bronze and Küste. The result is an elegant connection to the historic district Speicherstadt and the hometown of Sternglas: Hamburg, Germany. Once a warehouse of global trade, the Speicherstadt is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
In this special timepiece, the bronze-colored case meets the rich dark blue satin-finished dial. The iconic bronze color of the case recalls the red brick buildings of the Hamburg Speicherstadt and the shimmering propellers of international shipping of the last centuries. Correspondingly, the gently curved dial in deep blue color gives the Hamburg Automatik dark blue bronze a maritime character, meant to symbolize the infinite expanse and depth of the sea.
The skeletonized needle hands, the “buoy” second hand, and indices with luminescent Nemoto Luminova accentuate the technical character and enable precise time reading. A real eye-catcher is found on the four-screw case back: the engraving of the Speicherstadt with its impressive bridges and the famous Elbphilharmonie (the famous concert hall of Hamburg) in the background captures the spirit of the past and creates a connection between tradition and modernity.
