How to outsmart a millionaire.
I wasn't looking for trouble. I sat in a cafe, sipping my espresso and enjoying the quiet. Then it got noisy. Mr. Bigshot rolled up in a roaring Ferrari, dropping attitude like his $22,000 watch made it okay for him to be rude. That's when I decided to roll up my sleeves and teach him a lesson.
"Nice watch," I said, pointing to his and holding up mine. He nodded like we belonged to the same club. We did, but he literally paid 100 times more for his membership. Bigshot bragged about his five-figure purchase, a luxury heavyweight from the titan of high-priced timepieces. I told him that mine was the Stauer Corso, a 27-jewel automatic classic. And just like that, the man was at a loss for words.
Think of Stauer as the "Robin Hood of Watchmakers." We believe everyone deserves a watch of uncompromising precision, impressive performance and the most elegant styling. You'll feel the quality as soon as you put it on your wrist. This is an expertly-crafted time machine... not a cry for attention.
Our specialty is vintage automatic movements. The Corso is driven by a self-winding design, inspired by a 1923 patent. Every second of power is generated by the movement of your body. Each timepiece takes six months and over 200 individual parts to create the complex assembly. Peer through the exhibition back to see the 27-jeweled automatic movement in action and you'll understand why we can only offer the Corso in a limited edition. The black dial features a trio of date complications including a graphic day/night display. The Corso secures with a two-toned stainless steel bracelet and is water-resistant to 3 ATMs.
