In the early 1930's watch manufacturers took a clue from Henry Ford's favorite quote concerning his
automobiles, "You can have any color as long as it is black." Black dialed watches became the rage
especially with pilots and race drivers. Of course, since the black dial went well with a black tuxedo,
the adventurer's black dial watch easily moved from the airplane hangar to dancing at the nightclub.
Now, Stauer brings back the "Noire", a design based on an elegant timepiece built in 1936. Black dialed,
complex automatics from the 1930's have recently hit new heights at auction. One was sold for in excess
of $600,000. We thought that you might like to have an affordable version that will be much more accurate
than the original.
Basic black with a twist.
Not only are the dial, hands and face vintage, but we used a 27-jeweled
automatic movement. This is the kind of engineering desired by fine watch collectors worldwide. But
since we design this classic movement on state of the art computer-controlled Swiss built machines,
the accuracy is excellent. Three interior complications display day, month and date. The crocodile
embossed leather band is adjustable from 6-1/2" to 9", fitting almost any wrist. And the screw-down
crown keeps the watch water resistant to 5 atm.
We have priced the luxurious Stauer Noire to keep
you in the black... so slip into the back of your black limousine, savor some rich tasting black coffee
and look at your wrist knowing that you have some great time on your hands.
