World’s most famous timepiece shrinks

Stauer resizes London’s legendary clock face in an iconic wristwatch guaranteed to deliver "jolly good time"

Here’s the truth about Big Ben: it really is big. Huge, in fact. The first time I saw the 315-foot tower, my jaw dropped. Growing up in Manhattan, I was used to tall buildings. I thought gawking was for tourists. I was wrong.

I’ve been back to London more times than I can count and the sight of Big Ben never gets old. The legendary Gothic Revival tower stands as tall as it did in 1859 when it was first introduced to the world. Except for a few snags, the famously reliable clock has chimed through good times and bad, in years of peace and during the scourge of war. Today, Big Ben remains the most recognizable—and hardest working timepiece—in the world.

The problem with Ben is you can’t take him with you, so we put the big clock on a diet. Using the famous 23-foot wide face as inspiration, designers at Stauer have created a scaled down homage that would make even Her Majesty proud. The Stauer Big Ben Watch features an etched enamel dial with black hands and markings that echo the 19th-century cast iron and opal glass design of the original. Protecting the exquisite dial is a gold-finished case that fastens with a genuine brown leather strap and is waterproof to 3 ATM.

Every Big Ben Watch is expertly constructed using state-of-the-art, computer-controlled, machines for remarkable accuracy that may just surpass the record of the original. It doesn’t matter if you’re a lifelong Anglophile or you’ve just always wanted a British accent, right now is the best time to make the most famous face in London yours!

Big Ben comes alive

I to have seen Big Ben in detail. The close up and detail was shown in the Movie ''Thirty-nine Steps starring Robert Powell, a British Movie. Your replica is exactly like the real Big Ben in every detail as far as I can tell. I looks good on my wrist and I love it as a watch. Haven''t had it long enough to establish accuracy but I believe being a Quartz it is probably accurate.George James

Simply Blown Away

This watch was advertised at this price($49) during the summer of 2010 and can you believe it I didn''t buy it and it slipped away, so much so that Stauer didn''t even have it on their website. So when Stauer started showing up on a cable Shopping Network at the beginning of 2011 and had this watch on it renewed my interest in it. During that airing the Stauer rep. mentioned that this was the 2nd generation. The 1st generation had a gold case. That''s when I figured out why last summer Stauer was selling it for such a great low price. So I googled BIG BEN and found a link that brought me back to the Stauer site and for the price of $49. Figuring it was the gold tone case I said what the heck, for the price no one will know the case had been changed. But to my surprise when the watch arrived and I opened the box, I had the newer case which is with an antiqued finish giving it the look of age. I was blown away. The detail on the dial is great especailly in the center where the design is gold and really stands out when the light hits it. I have 2 other Stauers and 15 total watches in my collection and this one ranks right up at the top as one of my favorites even though it is the new kid on the block so to speak. So my advice to those who wait to buy a watch when Stauer has it for a great price, don''t. Get it right then so you don''t have to wait 6 months like I did. Thank you Stauer. I will definately be buying more watches in the future.
