Make up for lost time

Stauer has finally revived the 1945 Swiss timepiece considered one of the rarest watches in the world

I've only seen two watches like this in my life. One was on my grandfather's wrist. The other was at a luxury collectibles auction in London. Unfortunately both of them disappeared. My grandfather's was lost on a train somewhere between Chicago and New York. The other fetched thousands and vanished into a private collection. I realized that the only way I'd ever see one again is if I made it myself.

Our 1945 Léman Timepiece is inspired by a classic from the most famous of vintage Swiss watchmakers. Advanced technology makes it even more accurate than the original, without losing any of its signature style. Holding the finished product makes me wish I could share it with my grandfather.

The wristwatch that started it all. His father gave it to him as a gift for being the first person in the family to graduate from college. Throughout my childhood, whenever I asked him to see it, he'd show it off like a proud parent. I loved that watch almost as much as he did. And so when he lost it, I think I was the only one who understood how much it hurt.

Reconstructing the past. It was only once I got into this business that I fully grasped the true value of such a rare timepiece. I've been working for the last 20 years trying to recreate a worthy replacement for his missing masterpiece. Just like the 1945 original, the Léman has been given a distinctive square case marked with simple indicators. The face is rich with vintage detail, including a serpentine hand to mark the date and a distinctive moonphase display. With the introduction of our Léman, I'm finally making up for lost time.

Unique Watch

Beautiful watch with square body. Brass with white face and roman numerals with blue hands. This watch is unique, because of the date hand which is brass. I've never seen a watch with a date indicated by a hand on the face. The day and month are a bit on the small side, but they are readable. The lunar phase can easily be changed by pulling the crown out to the first position and rotating the crown clockwise. You will need to check the lunar phase in a calendar or online. It's easiest to set it on the full moon. The other lunar phases require some guess work. You should note the phases are approximations. They do not match the shape of the moon just the moon phase.

Overall I am happy with the watch. The only issue was that the crown shape allows the crown to pull out by catching on some clothing. A crown with a cylindrical shape prevents this. The crown on this watch is shaped like a cylindrical funnel. This means the top of the crown can catch. This happens rarely.

A Unique Time Piece

I recently purchased this watch because of its unique styling. The date hand is really impressive. I have worn it only a few times, but I have received several positive comments from friends. The leather strap is also well done. Even my wife wants to borrow it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a distinctive watch at a very affordable price.
