A free car with every watch?... keep reading
I love classic watches. They are finely tuned miniature mechanical marvels that are both beautiful and functional. But many Swiss models cost more than my new car. So we at Stauer decided to replicate the movement of a magnificent $26,000 Swiss Automatic watch but sell it to you for a fraction of the cost. So you end up with thousands in change. That's enough to buy a brand new sedan or SUV.
Is their watch really worth $26,000...
Well we don't believe that any watch is. That's the point. How did we build such a fine machine for such a low price? We decided that we could save you a fortune on the perfect watch if we moved the factory across the border and out of Switzerland. By using Swiss built machinery and Swiss trained engineers, Stauer is able to build this magnificent limited edition Stauer Monaco automatic timepiece for 93% less than a comparable luxury model.
Our factory spent over $22 million on Swiss made machinery to insure the highest quality parts. We hired Swiss trained engineers to manage the production. We even purchased Swiss calibrators to insure rigorous accuracy. But we avoided the high taxes and high marketing costs in Switzerland.
We built this brilliant timepiece with a 6-hand movement. The Stauer Monaco displays the date and day of the week. A third interior dial displays 24-hour military time. The exquisite automatic movement is powered by your body's motion so it never needs batteries. The interior workings have over 185 parts assembled by hand. Twenty-four rubies act to minimize the friction on the gears and rotors so the movement maintains incredible accuracy. Every single watch is timed for 15 days before it leaves the factory. You can tell the quality by the smooth sweeping motion of the second hand. It doesn't click like a mass produced quartz movement.
For the first time in watchmaking history, a watch this refined is on the market at this low a price. You are dealing directly with the manufacturer so we can pass the savings on to you. Stauer brings the ultimate luxury watch directly to you. This one comes with the added luxury of keeping your money in your wallet, not on your wrist.

Stauer Chrome Monaco
Great watch at a great price.Looking to purchase other items from Stauer!
Stauer Chrome Monaco
I love the smooth action by the second hand, this watch makes me feel smart and savy. Thank you for making such a wonderful time piece.
I like the Chrome Monaco
This is my third watch purchase from Stauer.A good looking watch that is classy but can still be casual at the same time. Has a quality look and feel and the price is very reasonable.
I''ve had my Monaco for a couple of years now. I don''t wear it every day. Usually, I''ll wear it for a couple of weeks and swap out with another of my watches. All it takes to get it up and running is a few shakes and setting all the small dials and the time. I love the style of this watch. The sweep second hand is a joy to watch. I like the way the buttons to set the day and date screw down to prevent them from being inadvertently pressed. I also like the screw down crown. The watch has been very accurate. Like all automatic watches, it gains a little time over a week, but it is not a problem. The band is also very nice. I had to take some links out and this was easily accomplished with the threaded pins. There is a lot of quality in this watch for the price. I have not had a minute''s problem with mine and I highly recommend it.
The finish of the watch is smooth and sophisticated. The movement of the second hand displays effortless Swiss movement and accuracy while the mother of pearl face is absolutely beautiful. This is a time piece that every collector should highly consider.

I like it
It still works!
This is the watch that started me collecting. After several Invicta, Rotary, Casio, Timex, etc., this watch is still my favorite. Very comfortable to wear. It looks a little beat up considering I work with my hands on computer equipment. The coloring has come off the outer numbers, and there''s some scratches on the crystal. Yet, every time I polish it with metal polish, I see the beauty of its'' bright stainless gleam. Accurate as my Rado DiaStar if not more so. Love this watch.
Stauer Monaco: Great looking watch!
I just received this watch for my birthday and I am very satisfied with it. The contrasting chrome/satin finish of the watch and band is a great look. This version differs slightly from the photo on the website as the hour markers and hands appear black but are actually very polished stainless steel. The face is also described as "white" but has a mother of pearl finish.But the quality appears excellent and I am delighted with my first "automatic". My only suggestion to improve it would be to give it a skeleton back.I look forward to my next Stauer. Thanks!
I love this watch!!!!
Just received mine today. Wow! is all I could say. I love the feel and look of this watch. I cant believe I paid this little for it. This is my first Stauer and will not be my last. Keep up the good work!
I love this watch
The Chrome Monaco is a classy timepiece.
I own the black faced Corso as well and have a hard time deciding which one to wear.
I recommend this watch for personal wear or to give as a gift because of its quality. It keeps time with little need to adjust and is very durable.
I chose it because I love automatic watches and the Corso proved very dependable.
I plan on buying from Stauer whenever I need another watch.
My Favorite Watch
Stauer does great work and the Chrome Monaco is yet another fine watch in their collection.
I have two other Stauers but the Monaco is my favorite. There is a simple elegance to this timepiece. I recommend buying the Monaco for anyone who wants a high quality watch at a great price.
