Been looking at the steinhart website a lot lately and noticed most of the special editions are for a Russian forum and all seem to be designed by den71is ??
It's a shame the limited editions because I think most of them would be great sellers, I would love to get my hands on a terra incognita.......stunning watch....
may be steinhart should employe den71is?
cheers

I feel the exact opposite when it comes to the majority of the russian forum designs - most look like a tart's handbag to me - so it's really true that one man's trash can be another man's treasure. Nothing wrong with that. ;-)

Regardless, Steinhart already employs an excellent designer. And if the company ever traded him for the person behind those russian editions, I'd probably never buy another Steinhart.

Agree.
lot of them look like Fashion Watches. but then again: to each his own. i believe there's something for everyone..

but for me, i Love Bold & CLASSIC Design that makes a Statement. such as the Latest : The LGE Chronograph which is One of Simon's inspiration :-! .

The current portfolio already fills the needs of a greater majority. Special Edition pieces will not be made into mainline models as their very purpose is a limited run of special order pieces. They have been designed in conjunction with Steinhart by enthusiastic members of forums & the general concensus from these forums is that their piece will remain limited & this for the most part is Steinharts position. Steinhart can & have however introduced models that are similar but not the same as a couple of S.E pieces.

Steinhart don't need any more designers. They already have gigabytes of plans, some on the drawing board & I can assure everyone that GS & Triton (Simon) have many more ideas & plans for new & updated models in the works.
