Hollywood got it right in 1938. Just look at the list of films released or in production that year: "Gone with the Wind," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "The Wizard of Oz," "The Adventures of Robin Hood." It doesn’t get any bigger or better. And back then, screen idols created the gold standard for movie star style and celebrities have been trying to keep up ever since. Just hearing their names conjures an image of sophisticated cool: Cagney, Olivier, Garbo and Leigh. Gable, Davis, Flynn and Tracy. We longed for that bygone era of elegance so much that we decided to build a time machine.
The Stauer 1938 Majestic Watch is a sleek tribute to Hollywood’s Golden Age. This is the watch that the big screen’s biggest stars might have flaunted at red carpet premieres or the Academy Awards®. After combing through hundreds of vintage watches, we found a co-star worthy of history’s most popular leading men. The streamlined Art Deco design and unique display of the Majestic was inspired by a rare timepiece style of the 1930s. Wristwatches with digital indication used rotating discs instead of hands to show the time. Finding similar vintage movements in working order is rare. And even then, it can cost you a small fortune. But, by painstakingly reproducing the complex mechanics, we’ve given you a more accurate update of the stylish original. That’s like getting balcony seats at the world premiere for the price of a matinee
The easy to read dial shows the hour and minute through a triangular window in the gold-toned, stainless steel case. Powered by a precise movement, the Majestic secures with a black leather strap and is water-resistant to 3 ATMs. Finally a Hollywood remake that gets it right! Fits wrist 6-¾"- 8-¼".
