Malchert watches represent an homage to UNESCO world heritage city Quedlinburg. From every direction, the Schlossberg and its famous Stiftskirche church attract the observer’s eye. It is the city’s famous landmark and therefore the name giver of the first Malchert series of watches. The hand-produced SCHLOSSBERG combines design and technology to become a masterpiece of the art of watchmaking.
The Watchmaker on his Work:
»With this Malchert watch, you receive a product that has been created through my respect for my tradition, the art of watchmaking. At the same time I’m fulfilling my dream of combining my professional experience in Glashütte with my home of Quedlinburg.
»Attention to handmade details and craftsmanship are found throughout my watches. My first model, SCHLOSSBERG, includes hand-engraving and gold-plated plates. The surfaces of the three-quarter plate and balance cock have traditionally been grained by hand. The dial is the product of my personal new Malchert design and has been fabricated to my specifications.
»The minute hand has its own story. I found one with a similar shape in my grandfather’s box of spare parts for pocket watches and immediately fell in love with it. That’s why my watches have this special hand. Through the round shape at the end of the hand, new little pictures are created as it moves. The hands are polished by me and tempered blue.
»Even the packaging was handmade by a master carpenter in cooperation with me. Our logo was imprinted onto the wooden box using screen printing.«
