One day, he was strolling the bombed-out streets of Palermo in dusty olive drab. Months later, he's headed uptown in a gray flannel suit. He missed the comfort of his rifle and felt absolutely naked without his stripes. His friends set him straight. They reminded him that here in the big city, you don't have to worry about rank. All that matters is class. A tight haircut, a sharp suit and of course, a wrist watch worth showing off.
The watch he wore could be considered the great grandfather of our Stauer Madison Automatic. It was a big-bodied, broad-faced rose gold beauty that he'd picked up overseas. He kept it safe and it kept time in even the worst of conditions. Now that it was back home, he drafted it into civilian service. Office work. Much less dangerous, but sometimes just as demanding. He walked every day to the office. He liked the fresh air, didn’t mind the crowds and the walk kept his watch running as regular as the 5:00 train. As long as he was moving, his machine would never skip a second.
Inspired by the simple, classic style of the late 1940s, the Stauer Madison Automatic shows off a satiny silver-toned face finished with day-of-the-week and 24-hour displays in charcoal dials. The rose gold-finished case also features a display back for observing the intricate movement of the rotor and elegant etched watchworks. A classic comeback from Stauer!
