Rock around the clock tonight
Standing in front of the guitar shop window was the greatest thrill and the worst kind of torture. As a kid, I never had the money to shell out for a mint-condition Gibson, Rickenbacker or Les Paul. After playing for what seemed like an eternity on dinged-up secondhanders, I finally got my first Fender Stratocaster. The guitar looked and felt like a masterpiece. That's the thing about a classic guitar, the work of art is the piece you play...and the piece itself.
It's no wonder one look at its voluptuous outline brought me right back to the glory days of rock-and-roll. The unique shape immediately brings to mind those round-bottomed bodies of vintage electric guitars.
The eye-catching, ivory face features blue Roman numerals on the left of the dial and bold Arabic numbers on the right. Blued, Breguet-style hands keep time while additional complications mark the day, date and month. A date window sits at the 3 o'clock position. Inside, the 27-sapphire-jewel movement utilizes an automatic self-winding mechanism that never needs batteries. The Stauer Guitar Watch secures with a genuine black leather band and is water-resistant to 3 ATMs.

Stayer Guitar Watch
Received watch today,09/22/2009. Nicely packaged. Upon opening I was even more impressed. Very handsome watch. Catalog pictures don''t do it justice.This is the third Stauer watch I''ve received. Exceptional values. I''m awaiting the Stauer Atomic with great anticipation. I''m thumbing the catalog for my next purchase.

I collect watches invicta,bulova,citizen,fossil.Iget your e-mails and catalogs.You guys have good deals and from what I can see very nice watches.I need to start taking atvantage of your offers.The guitar watch is a unique style. Keep up the good work.
This is a "Diddly" of a watch!
Very unique, different and appealing. Count on it added to my collection! Watches are addictive and Stauer feeds mine! I mean this in a good way of course. DrWho7

it''s a go!
this watch passed my test,just bought the black face,diamond at the 12 position and open heart with the"s" on it and a red seconds hand at the six position,i tell u if you want to start a watch collection at a good budget,STAUER is where to start.All the watches look real expensive and a lot of deatail!yes the company is new but i think they''ll b around for a long time making more great watches....put ten STAUER watches in a watch box...man they look inpressive to show off!
This is my 5th Stauer watch. My collection consists of 22 watches. From $79.00 to $2,000.00. I like quality and Stauer seems to be lacking in this department. Of the five Stauer watches that I have, two must be returned for repair. The Graves ''33 watch has a detached hand floating around under the crystal and the hour hand on my Chrome Monaco is seriously lagging behind. Neither of these watches has ever been subjected to abuse. This Guitar Watch looks stylish and feels good on the wrist. I get alot of comments about it. I just hope it is of better quality than the previous watches I''ve purchased from Stauer. Maybe it''s the Chinese movement? I''ve recently purchased a watch for $79.00 that has a Swiss ETA movement and it hasn''t given me an ounce of trouble. I would gladly pay a little extra for a Swiss movement in these watches. Listen Up Stauer!

Just got it....I LOVE IT :) IT''S EVERYTHING I EXPECTED TO BE. Thank you stauer.com :)
Different and Attractive
Stauer has done it again - this one looks great and has a style all its own. It certainly appears to be a high-quality item, though of course time will tell. It''s my second-favorite Stauer watch, after the Presidio (with which I''ve had no problems so far). Thanks, Stauer!

Nice!I received the watch a few days ago, and am quite satisfied. Winding take a bit if getting use to, but other than that - excellent value!
Just got mine today. Took my $3,800.00 Rolex off and put this on. Already several of my co-workers made positive comments and assumed that I paid a lot of money for it. They were all in disbelief when I told it only cost me $99.00. Looks like Stauer will have more customer in the near future. Thanks for a nice watch and great value...
AWE INSPIRING DESIGN !!!
This is not a timepiece for the faint of heart.The photos (even enlarged) do not do it justice.My wife initially thought it''d be ''tinny'' and too ''kiddy'' for a man my age. Upon opening the package my jaw dropped and my eyes opened.With the advent of cell phones I haven''t carried a pocket watch nor worn a wristwatch in years; I will now! This is a ''meaty'' man''s watch of great caliber.Love the gold-tone inlays and domed bezel. Better value than my expensive and uncomfortable Citizen.My son''s all want one; guess I''ll be obliguing them soon. Thank You !
I''m a guitar repairman and a watch service specialist. I''ve had eht Graves 33 wrist watch for 4 years now. It looks and works like the day it arrived. However, with this guitar watch, I''m not so sure I get the Guitar connotation. The crystal vaguely resembles a guitar shape and the lugs and case design sort of do too, but it''s definitely NOT what I''d think of at first glance. Well, guess that doesn''t matter much. It is what it is; an interesting design.I think it''s sorta cool, and may be worth buying, but it specs out like it''s very large, heavy watch. I like smaller automatic watches. I may get it and see.
Guitar Watch - Totally GREAT!
I was a bit apprehensive to buy from a company I had not heard of online. I have collected watches for over 15 years, and always am intrigued by uniqueness. As an avid musician, the guitar watch caught my attention. The order process was easy, the watch showed up (with beautiful case and great documentation) earlier than anticipated, and the watch is simply fabulous. I have already received numerous compliments, and I only started wearing it yesterday. Great quality, GREAT design, great experience. I will most definitely be perusing the Stauer catalogs in more detail! Buy this watch! You won''t regret it.
Rockin'' around the Clock
This is a ridiculously cool timepiece! I own a number of Stauer watches--can''t beat the combination of style, reliability, and price.The Guitar Watch, however, is one of my favorites.Feels great on the wrist, not lightweight--and not only is great to look at, but is a terrific conversation starter. For a rock and roll wannabe, like me, this is the closest that I''ll ever get to thrashing an axe onstage. But hey--I''ll wear this and crank up the Doobie Brothers--works for me.
I just recieved my Guitar watch and when I opend the box I was very pleased , it looks FANTASTIC . When I took it out of the beautiful box the leather band fell off , but other then that I`m soo Happy Thanks Stauer !!!!

MY STAUER GUITAR WATCH
This past Christmas I received my Stauer Guitar Watch from out-of-state family. Was instantly amazed and my jaw probably dropped when I openned up my gift and got through the 3 boxes it took to finally get to the watch...lol. I am a singer/guitarist/songwriter and I''ve never had a watch feel so right as this one especially while performing on stage. Needless to say this watch will be accompanying me to many gigs in the future.
Day 1 review
I just got this Geetaw watch yesterday, and initial reaction is better than expected, and I expected a lot. My son is jealous thus will probably be getting one for his next birthday. As good as it looks though, it is a tad large as it stands almost 1 cm tall, back to face. Does not feel as big as it looks fortunately. Will give an updated review once I have taken it for a lengthy test ride.

I saw the add for this watch in an airline catalog while flying from Tennessee to Vegas, I was really struck by the design of this watch and decided to order it. I was absolutely blown away when it arrived, this is absolutely a stunning watch. as of now I''ve had it for 2 weeks and it has worked flawlessly. My boss who owns a collection of Rollex''s commented on what a fine looking watch it was and asked me where I got it. Great job guys keep up the good work

I do not collect watches, I simply needed a new watch, was enthralled by the quality of Stauer, and took a little gamble after seeing this watch! The watch is described by Stauer as a reproduction. I''m not sure which original it is a reproduction of, but it appears to be a really nice watch for the price! And it more than lives up to the intro! It is very detailed, is rather unique, and is a very artistic piece! It feels great on my wrist, not too bulky, yet solid enough to know I am not wearing a toy! No, the movement isn''t Swiss, or Japanese, but I''ve bought many Chinese products in many industry markets, and have found that when held to manufacturer''s specs, they do produce quality work! I cannot understand others making a 4 star rating on this watch, yet reviewing other watches instead? That''s confusing. But if you want to know about Stauer''s Guitar watch, I say buy it, and buy it now!
This thing Rocks!!!
This thing ROCKS!!! Been wearing it for a week it feels great on my wrist, Fit and finnish is outstanding. First time I ever bought anything from an ad in Playboy.
It''s Time To Rock!
I recieved mine about a month ago, in silver, and I''m very impressed and happy with it. The pictures in the ad don''t really do it justice. It keeps great time and so far has stood up to band practice very well! BTW, I play guitar, but right now in the band I play the drums!
Stunning! I get paid in a week.
