In the early 1930s, watch manufacturers took a clue from Henry Ford’s favorite quote, "You can have any color as long as it is black." Black-dialed watches particularly became the rage with pilots and race drivers. And since the black dial impeccably complemented a black tuxedo, the adventurer’s black-dial watch easily seguéd from the cockpit to the Cotton Club®. Now Stauer brings back the Noire, a design based on an elegant timepiece built in 1936.
Not only are the dial, hands and face vintage-inspired, but we used a 27-jeweled automatic movement. This is the kind of engineering desired by fine watch collectors worldwide. But since we made this classic movement on state-of-the-art, computer-controlled Swiss-built machines, the accuracy is beyond reproach. Three interior dials display day, month and date and the movement carries an extended two-year warranty.
