African Gem Cutter Makes $2,689,000 Mistake...Will You?
Allegedly, just two years after the discovery of tanzanite in 1967, a Maasai tribesman knocked on the door of a gem cutter's office in Nairobi. The Maasai had brought along an enormous chunk of tanzanite and was looking to sell. His asking price? Fifty dollars. But the gem cutter was suspicious and assumed that a stone so large could only be glass. He told the tribesman, no thanks. Huge mistake. It turns out that the gem was genuine and based on common pricing, that "chunk" could have been worth close to $3,000,000!
Would you have made the same mistake? Will you make it today?
Tanzanite has become one of the world's most coveted gemstones. Found in only one place on Earth (in Tanzania's remote Merelani Hills, in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro), the precious purple stone is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds. Luxury retailers have been warning that supplies of tanzanite will not last forever. And in this case, they're right. Most believe we only have a few years left. Some along Fifth Avenue are more than happy to charge you outrageous prices for this rarity. Not Stauer. Staying true to our contrarian nature, we've decided to lower the price of one of the world's rarest gemstones.

In 1770 a Swiss watchmaker created a legendary movement. He built the first watch with an automatic mechanical drive. The innovative movement required no batteries and never needed to be manually wound. His invention changed the face of time forever. More 150 years later, someone did it again. Now it's our turn.
It could be said that the Stauer Midnight Meisterzeit was born on the battlefields of Europe. During the fierce combat of World War I, a British serviceman and watchmaker had a revelation. He found that opening a watchcase to manually wind it left the delicate mechanics vulnerable to dust and moisture. After the war, he developed the very first self-winding, self-contained wristwatch. Building on the historic designs of a Swiss genius, he transformed the way the world kept time.
Our Midnight Meisterzeit has been painstakingly handcrafted to meet the demanding standards of vintage watch collectors. We engineered this classic with millions worth of precise, Swiss-built machinery. Every interior dial has been carefully engineered to replicate the "complications" of the earliest multifunction watches. Interior dials display day and month and a date window sits at the 6 o'clock position. The 27-ruby-jewel movement utilizes a self-winding mechanism inspired by the British soldier's 1923 patent.
With an exhibition back, you can see into the heart of the engineering and watch the rotor spin to keep it wound--it's powered by the movement of your body. The watch secures with a genuine leather strap and is water-resistant to 3 ATMs.
- 27-jeweled Vertex automatic movement
- Exhibition back
- Genuine black leather band fits wrists 7-1/4" to 9-1/8"
