Watch paroled after 84 years

Dont ask too many questions. Thats what the man said when he agreed to show me the watch. "All I know is that it belonged to a man of questionable integrity," he said. "Ill leave the rest up to your imagination." Then he opened the safe.

I’d heard stories that a cache of vintage wristwatches was found in a Chicago vault. Rumor had it that a player in the 1920s underworld had a thing for giving out luxury timepieces as gifts. He’d socked away a good part of his collection at a local bank, but got "detained" before he could come around to collect them. They sat untouched in a safe deposit box for more than 80 years. Most had gone for top dollar to private collectors, but my associate had snagged one for himself. And he was eager to show off.

Did the watch really have a criminal past? Nobody can say for sure. Maybe it belonged to a prohibition-era mobster or maybe just a little old lady with a love for luxury watches. But after being locked away for eight decades, this piece had certainly served its time. I’ve always been a firm believer in second chances. And rehabilitated or not, a watch this remarkable deserved a comeback.

After all, the original watchmakers didn’t spend months crafting a timekeeping masterpiece just so it could end up lost in the pages of some hierological history book. The watch was born to be worn.

Inspired by that stunning antique, the Stauer 1926 Quarté features a rose gold-fused tonneau case and a classically complicated ivory dial. Bold, black Roman numerals surround a quartet of eyes that mark the month, date and day of the week. Just above the 6 o’clock position is a monthly moon phase window. You can see that we’ve included the same details that distinguished the most prestigious watches of the day including a genuine sapphire crown and swirled, guilloche-style face. Protected by a solid, stainless steel case back, the Quarté secures with a genuine brown leather strap and is water-resistant up to 3 ATMs.

We’ve reproduced the luxurious look of the 1926 original, but looks aren’t everything. Thanks to 21st-century timekeeping technology, the advanced movement inside the Stauer 1926 Quarté may just make our update even more accurate than the original. And the fact that we can offer such a spectacular watch for this exclusive price could be seen as proof that sometimes crime does pay... for you!

Again, pictures don''t do this justice!

This is a beautiful piece! First, it''s more narrow band isn''t gaudy at all and the case thickness is perfect for slipping under your cuff sleeves. It looks amazing with a suit and finally, a formal watch that matches a pair of brown shoes! You guys nailed it on this one! Thanks for making a beautiful watch and one in a shape that stands out among other circular watches on the market!

Classy, One of a Kind Look

This is the first watch I have ordered from Stauer. It arrived today and made me say WOW! Next my wife commented on how nice the watch looks.The online and catalog picture do not do the watch justice. It reflects light from the dial face details making people notice. The sapphire stem helps, too.The watch does not make a sigle sound but the second hand has that nice clicking motion. The mechanics of setting the watch are easy to accomplish using the instructions.The watch and band will fit a small wrist just fine. The watch is a little thick but does not have any weight. I hardly know it is there and do not normally wear a wrist watch.If you want to wear a watch that draws attention and makes you different from others, at a very reasonable price, than this is it.I hope you find this review helpful as I do not normally post reviews. The look a quality lead me to let others know that this watch beats the heck out of the competition.

1926 Quarte Watch

FINALLY got this one,and once again,am TOTALLY happy, and pleased with yet another Stauer watch.!!Did however, "beat" their price,by going through "ShopNBC". Got this one, for $60.00 bucks. Wish the good folks at Stauer would re-consider some of their prices.There are about 6 more I would love to have from them, but the prices are a bit steep right now. Like I said above,--finally got this one,and am VERY pleased with it. Looks great.!,--runs PERFECT.!!Another great watch from Stauer.!!!!!!

Bought this watch for a present for my husband. He loves it and is always showing it to friends. This watch has replaced his more expensive watches. Easy to read, cool moon calander. Nice brown alligator strap. Rose gold colour is beautifully done.Highly recommend
