An Artful Homage to One of Germany’s Most Artistic Cities
The historic city of Siegen, Germany has a unique place in the history of art. World famous Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens was born in Siegen, and in his honor, the city now awards The Rubens Prize of the City of Siegen every five years to a painter or graphic artist whose life’s work has been groundbreaking on the European stage. The city is renowned for its many museums, including the Museum for Contemporary Art and the Siegerlandmuseum, located in the historic Oberes Schloss castle. Siegen is also home to the Beatles Museum, recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest public museum in the world dedicated to the Fab Four.
The Rüdiger Siegen Collection takes its name from this historic city that traces its roots to the Middle Ages and continues to exert its influence on the arts through a host of concerts, plays, festivals and the 400 year old Johannimarkt fair. Siegen timepieces feature a classically proportioned Tonneau-shaped 316L stainless steel case with a characteristically German dial.

The Siegen’s simple, understated dial gives the watch a distinctly vintage look, utilizing a small continuous seconds display at 6 o’clock along with bold Bauhaus inspired numbers. A rose gold crown provides an elegant accent to the harmonious design, while a genuine leather strap with an antique finish and comfortable nubuck lining completes the look.
