In all the hustle and bustle, and back and forth of business travel, it’s hard to stay focused on the things in life that really matter. Sometimes you need a reminder to stop and check out the view from 30,000 feet. That’s where the Stauer Viator comes in.
During his first years as marketing director for a major corporation, my friend commuted to work four days a week — commuted 2,000 miles. His family had settled on the West Coast before the company moved to the East Coast. And instead of uprooting his loved ones, he made the ultimate sacrifice and decided to red-eye it for a few years. As hard as it was, it was the right decision. And so, I designed this watch for all those coast-to-coasters out there.
The Stauer Viator Watch is sure to get attention from the person in the aisle seat next to you. Its unique convex crystal accentuates the striking North American map that gives the face so much character. With lines of latitude and longitude, it’s like wearing a globe on your wrist. The hour and minute hands are strikingly geometric and the second hand ticks away in bold red. Set into the map face is a scrolling date window, and the case is constructed of polished stainless steel. And to finish the look, a genuine black leather band with white stitching is attached to the case by a sturdy double hinge. The next time I feel my commute through traffic is too much, I’ll look down at this watch and think of my friend. Sometimes it’s good to see the bigger picture.
