Based in Hamburg, Germany, Sternglas creates functional, no-nonsense timepieces inspired by the Bauhaus design movement. The Topograph is one of their latest releases, centered around a black brushed stainless steel case and black dial with thin white markings. Among the highly legible indices is a Rehaut with each second inscribed that conveys the appearance of a technical measuring device. The minimalist watch is powered by rock-solid Miyota 821A automatic movement that's visible through the crystal case back and protected by slightly domed sapphire glass. Short, curved lugs make for a comfortable fit along with a leather strap that is handmade in Germany that can be swapped out in seconds for another thanks to the built-in quick release spring bars.
