Steinway and Sons

Steinway and Sons Luxury Swiss Watches

Pianist, designer and watchmaker, Fabrizio Cavalca has launched a line of Steinway & Sons Luxury Swiss Watches. The watches are inspired by the look of Steinway & Sons's grand pianos.
Steinway watch model D with 140 diamonds.

On the models D and M Steinway's logo can be seen on the to right hand corner of the watch dial. The seconds hand is skilled to resemble a tuning fork. The watch dial features a grand piano soundboard shape for the 18ct solid yellow gold, white gold or red gold with 12 hand attached strings on the dial. In the diamond version, instead of strings, the soundboard is decorated with 140 individually set diamonds. The strap is made of alligator or pure silk.

One of the watch models has a one-second metronome on the dial. The one-second metronome is developed by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht who won the award for "Best Watchmaker" in the 2007 Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève. The "Seconde Métronomique" is a limited edition of 300 timepieces: 100 in solid yellow gold, 100 in solid white gold, and 100 in solid red gold.
