Schaumburg Watch, based in Rinteln, Germany, was established in 1998 by Messrs Lindburgh and Benson. This boutique watchmaker produces less than 1,000 timepices per year year. Their focus is to produce interesting timepieces for collectors that are reasonably priced. The manual wind watches in their collection are in-house modifications of the Unitas 6497. The company makes its own plates and bridges in the typical German tradition, with beautifully engraved balance cocks. Movements also feature rhodium plating with gold engraving, blued screws, and beveled edges. Schaumburg also uses very high grade mainsprings for increased power reserve and consistent rate. For automatic models movements are Swiss based with upgraded escapements.
