Time travel at the speed of a 1930s Speedster?

The 1930s brought unprecedented innovation in machine-age technology and materials. Industrial designers from the auto industry translated the principles of aerodynamics and streamlining into everyday objects like radios and toasters. It was also a decade when an unequaled variety of watch cases and movements came into being. In lieu of hands to tell time, one such complication, called a jumping mechanism, utilized numerals on a disc viewed through a window. With its striking resemblance to the dashboard gauges and radio dials of the decade, the jump hour watch was indeed "in tune" with the times!

The Stauer 1930 Dashtronic™ deftly blends the modern functionality of a 21-jewel automatic movement and 3-ATM water resistance with the distinctive, retro look of a jumping display (not an actual jumping complication). True to "Machine Art" aesthetics, the sleek brushed stainless steel case is clear on the back, allowing a peek at the inner workings. The 1 ½" case is complemented with a black alligator-embossed leather band. Fits wrists 7"–8 ½".

Great Unique Watch

One of the most unique watches I have owned. I am a watch fanatic and saw this watch in a magazine ad. I immediately went to the Stauer website and ordered the watch. I get lots of compliments each time I wear it. I could not give this watch enough compliments. Great buy.

the price is alot better than the others. The other brands think that the more money the better. I bought a watch for 500.00 and one for 3000.00 and this watch gets more questions and more looks mthan those. I love this watch, most people think that this watch cost around 3k or even 20k that''s cool. they have no idea, cause i wont tell the price til i let them know the web site. Thank you for the inexspensive watch that looks exspensive!!!1

Great watch

I love my Dashtronic watch. I wear it daily as my regular watch and get compliments on it often. The glass panel on the back makes it fun to show off the moving parts. The automatic winder works well and it keeps excellent time. Last, the watch seems very sturdy. I haven''t been concerned about damaging it through regular wear.

Howard Hughes would wear this watch!!!

Just like a scene from Rockateer it is that pre-war modernism concept that this watch has inherited. Fantastic buy though a little bulky it is a perfect fit.

Nice one

A nice one but little bulky and I''m 54 yrs. old. Needs to wear an eyeglass to see the time. But nice one.

Best watch I''ve ever owned

After trying several automatics from Stauer, I decided I liked the Dashtronic. It is very accurate and a real eye-catcher. I cracked the crystal due to my own stupidity and will buy another in gold. While getting this one repaired. Love it

Wow! What a cool watch!

That''s what I hear over and over again from people who see me wear it everyday. I also am a watch fanatic and have Gucci, Movado, etc. I''d rather wear my Stauers. I get more complements on them then the others and they are so unique that not everyone has discovered them yet. Since I bought my 1st Stauer I''ve recommended them to a lot of friends and given them as gifts. You can''t beat the quality and price. When I gave my Dad one his first words were "you spent too much!"Then added "but I''m keeping it!" I never did tell him it was only $99.00. The Metropolitan is a great watch as well.

Complements!

A great fun watch! I get lot''s of complements every time I wear it. Most people haven''t ever seen anythng like it. I never tell what I paid for it, most people think it''s much more expensivethen the orig. price of $129.00 would never guess the sale price. Now one of my favorites!

Received today as a christmas gift

I saw the watch in a magazine add tore the page out and gave it to my wife and said to her "don''t ask what I wan''t for christmas". I really was not expecting her to get it for me but WOW BATMAN here it is. I can not give it a 5 or 4 rating at this time I have not experienced the quality and workmanship so I am cautiously optimistic I will be happy with my 1930. I will say I am impressed and excited right now and I am 57 years old and never get excited. (TIME WILL TELL) Will re-post at a latter date. Thank you

So cool

I just got this for Christmas. It is so cool. Someone else said "like a scene from the Rocketeer". That exactly what I said to my wife when she gave it to me. I''ve only had it for a few hours, but so far so good.

Get''s noticed

I like this watch and I wear it often. I get plenty of compliments when I wear it. I am hard on watches but I have not damaged this watch in anyway and I have owned it for almost 1 year. My only complaint is that the numbers are not better aligned.

I love this watch!!

I love this watch, this was the first watch that i purchased over the amount of $60.00 and it is worth every penney. Every one in the office loves it and all of my friends want it! I did have the band changed, I am yonger guy so the leather thing doesnt work that well for me. It also keeps time very well. You got to get you one!!!!

Bulky, heavy

I was born in 1930 - a natural. A beautiful watch but my arms have a light build. A former Casio automatic (equally heavy) gave me a "watch" elbow (like a "tennis" elbow) and I had to stop wearing it. I decided to return the Dashtronic rather than suffer the disappointment again. No problem with the watch, just my problem with an unfortunate match.

Beautiful unique watch!

I absolutely LOVE watches and this watch is one of my all time favorites! This piece is a striking example of 1930''s art deco technology with superb quality and a gorgeous, heavy antique gold case but best of all the watch has a crystal back allowing a glimpse of the fascinating automatic mechanical jeweled movement. A must have for a true watch aficionado!

Very Unique and Stunning

I bought this watch about 3 months ago, and I must say, I do enjoy wearing this watch. Very well made, and anyone who sees it asks about it. It appears as though the quality of the automatic movement of the watch is top notch. Looks very durable. I can see this watch lasting for many years, and it is truly a classic timepiece that will catch the eye of anyone who sees it for years to come.

Merry Birthday to Me!

I bought the 1930 Gold Fused Dashtronic for myself for a combined Christmas/birthday present. I can''t take my eyes off of it and am amazed at the supreme calibration the lab did when they built this watch as I have not had to adjust the time at all since the day I got it almost a month ago! I''m a collector, so I keep the watch in a Select Winder and the pair work flawlessly! Thank you Michael!

Dashtronic Gold

Very stylish. Gets many compliments. But...the online and catalog pictures of this watch are quite zoomed in. If you have anything less than good eyesite, the minute scale is VERY hard to see. Even worse in low light. Also, mine runs 1 min slow per day. But if you only wear it on occasion like me, no biggie. I think the looks offset any negatives. And the price is right!

Conversation Piece!

I had my eye on this watch ever since I saw an ad in a magazine. When it finally arrived, it was just as stunning as I thought it might be. Many people have commented on our unusual, yet classic it is. My next watch will definitely be from Stauer.

Stauer 1930 Gold Finished Dastronic Watch

The watch is very nice but it was wound while in the box and left on the doorstep in the cold!!!!!! Had a very hard time getting the correct time set, seemed to have locked up because of the cold and wound up too much. Shipping was great as far as time but Stauer needs to pack these for cold weather. Hope everything will work out with this time peace and it has a BROWN WRIST BAND, not a black one as in your add in the HOT ROD Mag. If not working with great time, you will see it back.
