Karl Falk Einzeiger Watch - Single Hand Watch
The Karl Falk Einzeiger Automatik in black is one of our favourite watches. Made in Germany with a swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, this watch features only a single hand. This goes back to the beginning of the watch (1524) when the first watches ever made only had a single hand.
In the 1500s the mechanics in a watch were not sophisticated enough to show time to the exact minute and a single hand sufficed to give an approximate indication of the time. The Karl Falk Einzeiger is reminiscent of that time and shows time in 5 minute increments.
Those who wear a single hand watch say that wearing a watch with only one hand leads to a less stressful day to day life - who really wants to be living life governed by every minute - it is much more relaxing to have an indication of how time is creeping forwards rather than an exact time stamp.
All the Karl Falk watches come with a leather strap and a steel strap and took kit for changing the straps.
