I'll take mine black...no sugar.
"As a professional restorer of antique and classic watches for major museums, I recently reviewed the movement and individual parts of the Stauer Noire watch. The assembly and the precision of the mechanical movement are excellent."-George Thomas - Towson Watch Company
In the early 1930s, watch manufacturers took a clue from Henry Ford's favorite quote concerning his automobiles, "You can have any color as long as it is black." Black dialed watches became the rage especially with pilots and race drivers. Of course, since the multi-functional black dial watch went well with a black tuxedo, this adventurer's timepiece easily moved from the airplane hangar to dancing at the nightclub. Now, Stauer brings back the "Noire" a design based on an elegant timepiece built in 1936. The rare, black-dialed, complex automatics from the 1930s have recently hit new heights at auction. One was sold for in excess of $600,000. We thought that you might like to have an affordable version that will be much more accurate than the original.
Basic black with a twist.
Not only are the dial, hands and face vintage, but we used a 27-jeweled automatic movement. This is the kind of engineering desired by fine watch collectors worldwide. But since we design this classic movement on state of the art, computer-controlled Swiss built machines, the accuracy is excellent. Our Accuracy Standard is an astounding 99.94%. Three interior dials display day, month and date. The screw-down crown keeps the watch water resistant to 5 atms. We have priced the luxurious Stauer Noire to keep you in the black. So slip into the back of your black limousine, savor some rich tasting black coffee and look at your wrist knowing that you have some great time on your hands.
