I received this watch as a gift. I have never seen anything like it before. The design actually makes a lot of sense and is very easy to read.The construction of the watch is solid. I am looking forward to wearing this for years!

Easy to read, have had nothing but compliments, favorite watch in my collection.
MY DASHTRONIC & MY SPORTS CARS
When I first opened the box from Stauer and saw my Dashtronic it brought back the memories of all the sports cars I have owned since I was in college back in 1959! Now I have had the watch for a month and I love it and the memories of my ''57 Austin Healy,TR-6s,Porsche 356B and many others.My wife bought me a Rolex Submariner 30 years ago and I cherish it, but when I have the top down on my Mustang and look down on my Dashtronic I really don''t feel 68 years old.Thank you Stauer for bringing back those memories.Sincerely, R. H.
very uniqe somewhat different time piece hope to purchace one for my son in collage will be nineteen in febuary.
I got "wow" comments the first hour I showed up at work with the watch. I love not having to buy batteries.
Seems to be quite well made. Solid construction, accurate function. Have had several people inquire about the design and the manufacturer. Good purchase for $99.00.
My early Christmas Gift
I am a very active person an destructive. I was reading through a National Geographic magazine one day at the dentist office in front of my fiancée just mentioned how tough the watch looked. The watch ended up being a early Christmas present because she couldn’t wait to see it on me. I have had the watch on every day since can''t wait to order the night winder display box and send it in for its yearly services. The watch has lived up to my expectation and would be a good gift idea to anybody. Thank you baby (to my bully)
Hubby Loves this watch !
Bought this for my husband for Christmas and he is so proud of this watch. Thanks. Great watch.
Solid watch and fun to wear! Great conversation piece! Easy to read! I must say of my seven watches from Stauer,this watch is one of my favorites!I love my Stauer 1930 Dashtronic watch..
I have gotten tons of compliments on the watch since recieving it as a gift - i love the uniqueness of the 1930 Dashtronic. Thank You, Stauer for the Great watch and affordable price.
This is classy! I just received it and I like it better now that its on my arm. Seems the Ladies like it as well, this watch will turn heads. Its started two conversations today already, and its my first day wearing it. Thank You Stauers!Your Loyal Customer,Christopher Taylor
My mom bought me this watch for my 58th birthday. What a surprise it was, and still is.Self winding is cool. Not having to replace a battery is a plus.Its kind of weird have to read the watch display backward, as the display does read that way, but I''m getting used to it.Suggestion: a way to light up the display in the dark.
My wife got this watch for me as a birthday present. I have had it 1 day and have already received several compliments on it - my boss said he was glad he was transfering because now he is going to get one for himself!It is nice and heavy and seems to be very durable. Something I will keep for many years.
Another very different selection from Stauer
Great attention getter. Very unique, like many of the other Stauer watches I own. Reliable time keeper and the 100.00 gift certificate given with numerous Stauer watches keeps me returning. I now own at least (8) eight Stauers and numerous have cost me little or nothing... What a terrific company.
Great Value & Cool
$99 doesn''t buy much watch nowadays. This watch is very cool and retro style is very different.So afr so good, it keeps acccurate time & wonce you get used to the position of the numbers in th edial it is suprisingly easy to check the time.Only comment is that it would have been a home run if it contained another windo wfor the date, but now I''m getting picky.
Long Island, NY
My girlfriend bought this beautiful watch and when i open the box i was, wow nice work THANK U
unique and timeless
My wife bought me this watch for christmas. I saw it my street thunder magazine, ripped the page out, and put it on my board. All i could do was talk about this watch. Now its on my wrist and always on conversation!!!
I have sold watches for ten years. I own a Bulova, Mavado and Seiko. When my father-in-law gave me this watch, I instantly flipped for it. I love it. It has so many strong points, such as the automatic movement, pressurized water resistance, tough and stylish casing-all coming together for one simple and flawless function, to give an accurate time. There is a minimalistic, industrial beauty to this watch that continues to grow on me. Thanks dad. This watch is the bee''s knees. Oh by the way, I put away all of the other watches.
I Got this watch last year as a gift from my wifeI love the way it feels solid and strong,plus thefun of telling the story behind the watch.Put oneon and enjoy the compliments.
Much better than I expected
This is the first Stauer watch that I bought and my experience was so good that I now own six Stauers and bought two for gifts. The Dashtronic is truly unique, but takes a while to get used to. In a sense, the face moves while the hand stays still, but since most watch mechanisms turn clockwise, the watch appears to turn backwards. It took me about a week to get used to that eccentricity. However, it just adds to the charm. Like the other reviewers, I am amazed at how durable it is so I wear this model for rougher activities. Out of all of Stauer’s watches, this is probably the most unique and the most fun for the low price. If you only buy one, this is it.
It sure gets noticed
Just got my birthday present I bought myself while out of town.(saw it in the airplane magazine) Went out to eat with some friends and got compliments from everyone and the waitress noticed it too. I almost wish I would have gotten the gold one to. When the Doctor at the dentist office complimented me and said he thinks gold would have looked better.The real test will be how well it preforms at work over the next few months but for now I couldnt be happier.
DASHTRONIC -- WOW !!
I''VE WORN THIS WATCH FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS AND HAVE HAD MORE COMPLIMENTS THAN I CAN SHAKE A STICK AT. EVERYONE THAT SEES THE WATCH IS AMAZED AT IT''S APPEARANCE. SOME HAVE WONDERED HOW I TELL THE TIME BUT OTHERS READILY SEE IT AS A "UNIQUE" TIMEPIECE. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISPLAY YOUR CLASSIC OFFERINGS...
I am not much on Brand Names or their prices. What I am big on is quality engineering and unique application for a fair price. My watch is a reflection of me, not I of it. Thanks for a great watch.
LOVE THIS WATCH
LOVE IT. IT TURNED A FEW HEADS AT WORK. I REPLACED THE LEATHER BAND ONLY CAUSE I WORK OUTSIDE. KEEPS TIME VERY WELL. THANKS FOR A GREAT WATCH.
SAN ANTONIO TEXAS
If you want something different here it is. People will come up to you and ask you about your watch and ask you were you get it. I got both stainless and gold, there one of a kind.
I just received the watch and received complements about it on my first day of wearing it. I love the looks and it is a nice addition to my watch collection. It is fun to explain it''s unique design.
OL'' Skool Styling
Everyone who has noticed it, they all want to find out who sells it. And I found the add in one of my Hot Rod Magazines. In my opinion the watch is very unique and has that certian touch of class, it is my favorite watch out of my collection. Thanks for a great watch.
I''m in love with my Stauer!
I received my Dashtronic as a Birthday gift in early June of 2009. Since putting it on my wrist it''s been the only watch I wear. Not only is it attractive but it''s an attention grabber and instantly generates conversation when seen. Thanks for such a quality product! I''ll treasure it for years!
Holy Cow I Love It !!!
By Far The Coolest Watch I Have, Bar None. My Buddy Showed Me Your Add In A Car Magazine And Said " I Thought I''d Show You This, I Know It''s your Style." And he Was RIGHT , I Ordered It That Night. Waited Like A Little Kid. Then I Got It. WOW...I Have A Rolex,A Tag,A Diamond Cartier,A Chad Musca Diakka, Etc. And This Is THE COOLEST. And The Price, Oh My God, Where Were You Guys Before I Bought Those Other Watches? Thank You Stauer, I Will Be Making More Purchases From You Guys...
This is the coolest watch I''ve ever owned. It keeps good time and in the three months I''ve had the watch, I haven''t had to adjust it once. I look forward to purchasing the gold one in the future. Another Great Job Stauer!!!
When people notice my Dashtronic they say "whats up with that watch".The look and feel represent a good value for the price. Having a watch that gets noticed...Priceless.
I just ordered the watch, can''t wait to get it. Never been into watches but when I saw this Stauer in a magazine I couldn''t, not order it. Could anyone give this watch a bad review?
Raymond, Alberta Canada
Very Unique watch!Bizarre design. No one in our office has anything like this , it'' great Thank you and i will send some business your way. A+
San Diego , Califorina )
Very neat watch
Great accurate watch. Outside casing scratches easy though; it is not the sturdy brushed aluminum that it looks. It is very cool though, a bargain for 99 dollars.
INTERESTING MECHANICAL DEVICE!
Keeps excellent time. Very interesting to look at. Has excellent weight, so you can feel it when you''re wearing it. Very easy to tell the time. One of my special timepieces out of my collection of over 1,000 watches, ranging from Timex to Patek. Oh, a very wonderful present from my precious wife! :)
A MUST HAVE FOR HIS COLLECTION!
I saw the add in a magazine while I was on a flight and knew my husband would appreciate it. His collection has gotten to the point where he has just about everything and it''s difficult for me to buy watches for him anymore, especially watches that are unique. This watch was intriguing and was a MUST HAVE for his collection. He r-e-a-l-l-y likes this watch - its different style, the backwards movement, he loves automatics, the nostaglia flavor. When he''s happy, I''m happy!!!
I just received mine a few days ago and already I have gotten 3 compliments on it. I have other watches with price tags in the thousands and I hardly ever get compliments. This is very unique and a great price. i hope it doesnt just stop working one day......but for now, it seems to keep pretty good time.
New York, New York
...this is the 5th Stauer in my collection...had to have it. When was the last time you saw a timepiece like this?...It is so unique!...and unusual..time calculation is a different process but is part of the charm as you wear it..had cause to return the first copy sent...the return process is flawless and the new copy arrived promptly..this one works perfectly...as do my other Stauers...
need a woman''s version, please!!!
this watch is so unique! and visually attractive!please offer a woman''s style version!!!
A Picture is worth a THOUSAND words
Great watch bar none.I can''t say enough good things about the Dashtronic. Beautiful timepiece,takes me back to my younger days.The craftmanship is all that I expected. Thanks for a great classic wrist watch.
Very impressed, but....
Overall, a really nice looking watch with unique styling that appeals to me very much as a car/plane/train/machine enthusiast. Great looking, nice thick band, seems well designed and assembled. My only gripes are that it has Chinese movement, and that it wasn''t available with a stainless steel band as an option, which I would have gladly asked my wife for, as it was a gift. It just kind of tarnished the happiness factor seeing the tiny words "china mov''t" on the back case. But, what isn''t made in China these days. If this doesn''t matter to you, consider my review to be 5 stars instead of 4. Great looking timepiece, I will still treasure it.
Very Durable, Long Lasting
Watch has been put though the mill from working in the yard, running the tiller, to running the chain saw and turning wrenches on my and my brothers Trucks I really love this watch, not to mention all the complements I get about the looks and the different way it tells the time
Madison County, Iowa Home of covered Bridges
Great quality, fascinating display
I bought this watch for several reasons, namely its great price, excellent quality reputation, and interesting display style. When it arrived, I was blown away by how far it exceeded my (already high) expectations. This is a great watch at a great price. Made me a fan of Stauer for life.
If I was told this watch cost in the thousands, I''d believe it! What a classic timepiece for a mans wristMuch thanks!
Boca Raton, FL
I finally, unnecessarily purchased this `Dashtronic'' watch, for myself (if I had waited 2 months 2 years ago....). - Instead I purchased the `Re-Tourno'' (or something spelt similar) the accuracy of that watch, compared to an Orvis "Field Watch" of same price/similar Chinese movement; is 1.5 minutes variance per week. The Orvis "Field Watch" loses 6.5 minutes weekly.With a "Dashtronic" watch, I can exclaim "...look ma, no Hands!!!"!You only get so much value for $149.00/$99.00. Accept that I did, years ago. The "value of my purchase has come back to me; the precision of time keeping is "Spot On". - That''s why I am purchasing another `Stauer'' time piece from you. - "Green - is Self-Winding". "Soylent Green Is People!!!" !
Carl Junction, MO
Bought this watch as a gift because of its unique look. The gift-getter loved the look. I was a bit surprised at how large the watch was -- was not expecting it to be that big. But, it is quite comfortable and an attention getter -- he is happy with it.
This is a great watch! Looks good dressed up or down. Accurate time keeper. Love the automatic wind mechanism. Retro style, yet timeless! Excellent purchase, and the price is nice!
Olive Branch, MS
Not a Watch More of a Time Piece
i don''t have one of these yet but plan on asking for it this christmas. haven''t worn a watch in 40 years but this is so unique i thought it might be a good time (no pun) to re-think wearing one again. the reviews pushed me over the edge so if nobody gives me one i''ll be back on line to buy it myself. kind of a digital analog combination. should be easy to read in the cockpit. will return with a first hand (not second hand) review once i have it around my wrist.
1930 dashtronic Watch
When I was reading the Super Chevy magazine, and I was just skimming through till what catch my eyes. The Dashtronic watch got my attention when the page passed by and I turned the page back to what got my attention. I never thought the beauty of the 1930 Dashtronic Speedster Watch will be of that beauty and to my mind and heart I am dreaming of owning one soon. I would rate it a 5 stars. I have the Promotional Code and waiting till the day I am ready to order it with a big smile.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Awesome watch, no batteries is a big plus and the dial is killer. I love watching people when they ask the time and I flip the watch towards them...It has thrown about everyone for a loop to figure out the time at first glance.
Amazing and beautiful!!
I was a little apprehensive about getting this, because my friend said, "It looks like a scale..." When I got this watch just now in the mail, I was BLOWN AWAY - amazing! I LOVE THIS WATCH! This company is doing it right....they are amazing...and I feel like a winner with every purchase!
Los Angeles, CA
What a watch
This is by far the most conversation invoking watch in my vast collection. It is elegant and a superb timepiece. The pricing is perfect, and the performace is very exacting.
Love the watch!
I just received my Dashtronic in the mail yesterday as a gift from my wife. The packaging was very elegant. The watch is extremely unique and substantial. I love being able to see the workings through the glass back of the watch. My only issue is that I need to put on my glasses to see the exact minute. That, and my wife thought that she was buying the gold-finish version, I''m glad that she didn''t - the brushed steel finish matched matches the Art Deco industrial motif.
I am a guy and I have four older brothers. My Father bought five of these for us. This watch reminds him of his Father and his Grand-Father. They were both hard workers of the 30''s Era. They both wore them. Because I love cars, I highly enjoy the design. It''s comfortable and it allows me to remember three generations of my family.
Love my Christmas present!!!
Just received my watch from my wife for Christmas, I love this watch. The style, quality, and old fashion look. It looks dated and new, depending who looks at it. I will be a PROUD owner for years to come.
Best watch I''ve ever owned
I''ve had a lot of watches in my 48 year old life, but none quite as nice and elegant as my new Stauer 1930 time piece. Seems like everyone has a Rolex these days, but the limited edition Stauer is a much rarer find. Everyone wants to look at it and asks how it works. I hunt alligators so the accompanying alligator band was like the icing on the cake. I work outside and it''s so nice to be able to wear such a unique and beautiful watch in all kinds of weather without the fear of it being damaged. Other expensive watches of the same caliber are only worn on special occasions and usually only indoors, but my Stauer watch stays with me no matter what I''m doing. I look equally good wearing my Stauer watch whether I''m working outdoors, or whether I''m indoors attending a formal function. The two-year warranty is fantastic, but I doubt I''ll ever use it. This watch is a fine piece of machinery and it will be the last watch I''ll ever buy or wear. It was the best Christmas present I''ve ever received from my wife. Get yourself a Stauer...you''ll never regret it.
Wanted it for so long.
I really wanted this watch since seeing it in a magazine advertisement a year ago. I am currently unemployed and wanted to get it when I get a new job. I wasn''t even expecting it for a gift this year for Christmas. I was surprised when I opened it. It is a really neat watch. The only two complaints I have are that the bad is too big for my wrists and that only one of the 4 sides of the top is machined that smoothly. The other 3 have a sharper edge on the lip. Other than that, really cool in my book!pHps it does take some getting used to reading for time. Most people read it an hour ahead the first couple times.
Christmas Gift in air,at sea or in the train?
My sons and their girlfriends ordered the Dashtronic as a present for me with Christmasbecause they know I love watches.The watch did not arrive yet so I got a photographthey took from internet from the Dashtronic.So I went to your internetsite and saw the positive reviews.You can imagine I can`t wait the day the watch(hopefully) will arrive.
Looks great, good price
I was not sure what to expect for $99 so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how solid and nice it looked.
North Vancouver Canada
I got my watch this Christmas.....It''s SO different and vintage looking. I really like it!!!
My favorite out of many, many watches
I LOVE watches!! I have some very expensive ones and some very inexpensive ones. My only criteria is that I like them and they have a degree of class or are in some way unique. Like many others I found my Staure "Graves" while on an airplane and bought it thinking for $99.00 there was no harm, no foul if it was not as good as it looked in the magazine. I can truthfully say this watch turns heads and is extremely accurate. I had a home invasion burglary in June 09'' and the thief overlooked a Date/Just Rolex and took my Graves. When it was recovered the police said there was "no way" it only cost $99.00 and the crook evidently thought the same thing. I wish Stauer made more mens rings and things. GREAT JOB!Incidently the theif got 25 years with no chance of owning a Stauer "Graves" watch:) I also love the Stauer catalog, great stories.
For Someone Special!!
When I first saw this watch I thought it was the coolest watch I had ever seen!! I am all for something different and unique!! So I bought it for a dear friend, and he has been getting so many compliments on this watch. From now on I am going to purchase all of my watches from Stauer!
ive had people stop me in the middle of a converstaion just staring at my watch. ive got to the point to where i just continue teh conversation and just showing them my watch.excelletn watch, just wish it had a battery backup
Sodiers Comment on my watch!!
Bought this watch for my self. Call it retro,old school,or whatever. I get all kinds of great compliments from my soldiers,and my command staff.
Fort Bliss, Texas
Nice, but disappointing...
I think it is a good deal for $99 but the advertising is misleading as it looks like the lettering on the face of the watch is engraved when it is NOT. Takes some of that "toughness" away from the look of the watch.
LOVE MY WATCH!!!
Saw this in a magazine.Ask the wife please may I have for my birthday gift.GIFE GRANTED.LOVE HER &THE WATCH.
Great service, great watch
Ordered this watch on Monday and it is on my wrist today, Friday. I can not stop looking at this watch, it is so nice. I am not a watch guy but after seeing this in an airplane magazine I was hooked. I am very happy with my purchase. And what great & timeliness service, hard to find that anymore. You will not be disappointed if you get this watch, it is solid!!
I get stopped all the time by people admiring my watch. Not only is it different looking, it keeps perfect time! I''m very rough on watches (can kill a Timex in a less than a month), and I''ve been wearing this watch every day for the past 14 months. My only negative comment, is that there isn''t a woman''s version, only the men''s. I was so entranced with the watch, that I went ahead and got the men''s. Luckily, I''m tall, so I can carry it off.
amazingly great watch
bought this watch after seeing it in a magazine off of impulse, which i dont ever do normally. Its very comfortable to wear and i am picky when it comes to wearing watches. looks great in person, picture does not do it justice. great watch, awesome case it comes in with cleaning cloth and customer service card and other info about it. A+
Waiting for it in the mail
Love this watch
Ewa Beach , Hawaii
A great watch to look at and wear!
I Got this watch from my mother in-law for christmas. It is the coolest watch I have ever owned. I showed my wife and am now hinting for a new Stauer watch.
I got this watch for Christmas from my folks, I thought that they spend a ton of money on it for how nice it is! I looked at the price and I was shocked! It''s a great piece and all of my friends love it too :D a great buy.. I believe that I''ll be sticking with Stauer for my future watches.
Red Oak, IA
Beautiful but not very accurate
This watch has a truly unique design that is beautiful and has a distinct style. However, it is not very accurate. The hour and minute dials do not align accurately and is most noticeable at the top and bottom of the hour. When the hour dial is lined up on the mark the minute dial is between 5 and 12 minutes in the previous hour. The customer service rep. even told me it was supposed to be that way. My watch has also lost 2-3 minutes in the last 2 weeks. I love the look, but would not recommend it due lack of accuracy.
This watch is SOOOOO cool! 2
I picked up a magazine on an airplane. Just like D.B.P. from Central Indiana in 2009 posted, "So cool. So retro. So different. And so reasonably priced".I gave the family about 15 min. Now my pastor and a few friends want one. I subscribed them to the magazine. I broke the Chrystal and unfortunately it is not under warranty but they will repair it for $29.95 USD. such a small price for such a wonderful conversation piece. thank you!
I have to say, this is an amazing watch. I just received it today and was impressed. This watch is solid and has some weight to it. I had seen this watch in a motorcycle magazine and I felt that I needed this watch. The design is great, it''s nothing like I''ve seen before. This watch is well made with a look that''s hard to beat, especially for the price. I highly recommend. Thanks Stauer for such a quality time/conversation piece.
great watch but i can''t read it without my reading glasses. is it possiable to get a magnifying lens ?

My early 20th B-day present
The Stauer watch is the most sophisticated watch i own in my small,yet growing collection of 7 watches in toltal it shall be passed down to my son one day
I''ve had this watch about a month or so now. The first one I received I ended up sending back because it would not keep time. I followed the instructions carefully, and even called customer service, (they were very helpful, by the way) but to no avail. In hindsight, I was not used to a watch that you had to wind, as this watch has no battery. I think maybe the watch I sent back was fine, and it was operator error that didn''t allow it to keep time properly. In either case, make sure you keep in wound. It is self-winding, but I always give it a few winds when I put it on and usually a few more once or twice a day. Since doing that, I''ve not had any problems.It comes with a "leather" band. The inside of the band is leather, but the outside I''m not convinced is. Not a big deal to me, since I changed it out anyway. To me, though, it felt as if the band would start to develop cracks in it if it was worn regularly, since it was so stiff.The watch takes a little getting used to, not having any hands. You have to be able to actually read the numbers to tell time, not just glancing at the hands. That also makes it difficult to read in dim light, since the watch has no back-lighting to help you read it at night or in dim light situations.Overall, so far I enjoy the watch. It''s just so different than I''m used to seeing. It''s a fun watch to wear, but I prefer to use my other watch, too, if I want the simplicity of just glancing at the hands to tell the time. The quality of the watch seems solid to me, and I believe the price to be reasonable for what you get. I don''t think anyone who is curious about it would be disappointed in it. It''s a neat, solid, heavy feeling watch.
I have the rolex and a trinatron but this watch is da snizzle. I've got so many "what kinda watch is that" then i get "I want one where do I get it"

Nice design and price
Gotta say I like this watch design a lot. Not only is the design unusual, but, unlike some other more expensive watches, you can actually read the time instead of trying to figure out where the hands are in the midst of the watch face. Comfortable weight and nice brushed stainless steel with a beautiful strap. Seems to run accurately. Also like the fact that it''s an automatic, and no messing with batteries. Recommended
Received the watch as a birthday present from my wife. Unique, classy design. I would have given the watch a 5 star rating if it weren''t for one problem. The movement reflects the country of origin, China, by reading right to left, intead of left to right, and has to be studied a bit to read the time. It would have been much easier for western eyes and thinking to have the dials rotate counter-clockwise and the numerals to accend accordingly. Otherwise well done...
Simpler time memory
Saw the watch in a truck magazine and it reminded me of all of the old cars my friends and I had growing up. Bought one for me and one for my kid brother. Great looks,fine workmanship & good time memories
National City, CA
I love the design of this watch. This makes three Stauer watches and I love all of them.
Received this watch as a birthday gift. I saw it in a magazine two months earlier and showed it to my wife. I was very impressed with the innovative style. It has always been my dream to own a Rolex, but this watch will pacify me for awhile.
my new favorite watch
Before purchasing this watch, my "collection" consisted of a $600.00+ Seiko, or my trusty, disposable $10.00 wal mart watches. I decided I wanted a watch that was more middle of the road. This watch has been more than worth every penny. I get compliments on a regular basis, including those from people who inform me they are "into watches". I would certainly buy another one, or give one as a gift.
Beautiful. It really captures the antique look of the 1930''s
Palm Coast, FL
Love this watch
I''m not an impulsive buyer but when I saw this watch in a magazine on the plane I just had to have one. I bought it for the look but am impressed by the quality. Many people have noticed it and made comments on how cool it is. The self wind reminds me of the first watch my grandfather gave me.
Very unique and nothing like it on the market. Band fits comfortably also. I could not be happier.
First Stauer Watch
The 1930 Dashtronic Watch was my First Stauer purchase. This beauty caught my eye in a magazine ad and I knew I had to have one. I am always on the lookout for "unique" watches. This watch fits the bill at a reasonable price.
There''s really no other way to say it, I LOVE THIS WATCH! Without a doubt, this is THE best watch I''ve ever had the pleasure of owning. Solid build, simple yet beautiful design, and absolutely stunning... It''s perfect. The "face" and method of reading this watch is beyond unique, but I don''t believe that it could be any easier or more extraordinary. Plus, it just looks gorgeous! If you want a fantastic, reliable, and ingeniously constructed watch, buy this... NOW! No regrets!
Ellwood City, PA
My father purchased this unique watch for my birthday gift. I remember him asking me...do you have a watch? I said nope, because I can never find a unique...different watch than those ones that light up and look the same as any other.Amazing buy on my dads part. I am 23 now and I feel that the watch is something that used to be missing from my character. Now I feel like I have a long lasting watch to live the rest of my life with.
5 star GREAT VALUE.
This watch is perfect for my collection. Very nice rich appearance mine is the gold tone It fits with what i want in a watch. keeps great time and has a history behind it. I was born in 1930 I can relate the radio dials and dashboards of the cars. It draws attention quickly. You did a great job building the Dashtronic it almost seems it was for me. I am being a little selfish here because It does such a good job taking me down memory lane.
Great Time Piece
I really LOVE this watch, but I had to give it to my nephew who fell in LOVE WITH IT. I want to purchase another one as soon as my household income is stable. The were numerous compliments whenever I wore it.Also, I have my eye on the watch with the 3 eyes, Stauer Nautilus Watch.Thanks for offering such glamorous, elite quality products.
Pine Bluff, AR
I recently received my new watch and was pleasantly surprised. Cool look and nice feel. The only issue I have is when I looked at the bottom of the case and saw MADE IN CHINA! That took a little of the wind out of my sails; maybe it will stand the test of time.
Man i really love this watch for the same reason that roadsters love speeding. Quality is just incredible, strong durable stainless steel, just incredible. Its also very precise. I would recommend this watch to anyone interested in reading your dashboard while driving.

i bought this watch and i wanna tell just one thing this is amazing...Sexiest watch ever.i love it. thanks a lot Stauer company...
The watch looks great, but it is VERY HARD to read in low light areas. Forced to return the watch.
Hard to Read
A great looking, unique watch but it is virtually impossible to read without my reading glasses.
True conversation piece... and great watch!
Let me start by saying, I haven''t worn a wrist watch in over 10 years! I saw this one in a magazine and I started looking for an excuse to go back to wearing a wrist watch (it was easy).It''s a great watch, very easy to read (once you get used to it), and definetly a conversation starter.
cool looking watch
Everything about this watch is awesome!! except for one thing... The numbers are backwards!! It drives me crazy. Rather than going 1 2 3 4... it goes 4 3 2 1.

new addition to my collection!!
This is by far the most interesting time piece I own. Just got it and I am very impressed with it. Uniquely elegant
what a watch
this is the 5th stauer watch that i purchased and i love it. my father had a 1950 mercury and this watch looks like the dashboard of the car. i can''t believe the great quality and price of your watches. i guess i''ll keep adding your watches to my collection

I received my watch a few days ago, and love it. I only have one problem with it; that is the color of the minutes display. Having a bit of color blindness, red does not show up very well for me, so the minutes are difficult to read unless the light is good. I would suggest that you consider printing the minutes in black, or blue, rather than red.

He has no other watch quite like this one and now I''m looking at Stauer for another unique piece for his birthday! Although at our age, the numbers in the dial are a little hard to read, but who cares?! The watch overall looks magnificent! A cruise-worthy piece of jewelry for formal night!
Original and unique
I wear this watch everyday, and the number of comments I have received about it are astounding. Along with adults, this piece is a conversation starter for kids my age (I am sixteen).While it is a bit bulky for my taste, this watch definitely makes up for it in its style and low price.Even though I have to wind this watch back a couple minutes every week, because it is fast, I love it.
Great Historic Watch
This watch was a great Christmas gift from my wife...it is great that there is no batteries that need changing and the historic nature of the watch is great. Many people said that they have never seen anything like it.
I have many watches but this is my most unique. I get more questions and comments about this watch. It is easy to read, nice size, and keeps great time. Men and women will want to look at this and ask what type of watch this is. Great watch and great price for a very different timepiece.
Love this watch!
I bought this watch for my husband as a xmas present. I was impressed at how quickly I received the order and even more impressed by the quality of this watch. It''s such a unique piece.

most unique watch i own
Ive recently discovered my love for watches, and it all started with this one. absolutly my favorite watch. unforunetly i question how long it will last...be careful the brushed steel face will scratch, and the crown is slipping with the gears. Even though it may not be well built its still my favorite, and i may actually buy another one just incase this one fails.
A Gift for Myself
Ive always wanted a "expensive" watch but couldnt see spending the Money,till I saw this replica,I have gotten so many Compliments and Comments on the Dashtronic I feel like I''m wearing something very special and I did it without breaking the Bank! Thanks Stauer,I do have a few more already picked out.
I recieved this watch this afternoon and it is even better up close. Now my wife is searching for a watch! Thanks for great products!
Unique & an eye grabber... looks like it is from the future yet an older style thought system behind... i will have lots to explain when asked about the watch...
Uniqueness Of This Watch For Me
Just found out about this watch last evening. It is very special to me in that it portrays my birth year 1930. I will be ordering it for my 81st birthday on March 15 of this year. My watch collection covers the decades from the 30s to the present. All of the technologies invented in that span of time. I hope that it is more efficient than the Bulova Accutron with the tuning fork design. That was a very big disappointment.
Love the watch
The only draw back is no back light for night viewing. I am astounded how many people inquire about the design and how it works.
This watch has garnered more attention than any I''ve ever owned! Young people (they like the steampunk design), older people, everyone loves it.I''m ordering one for my trusted car mechanic - he really couldn''t get over it.
Panama City, FL
I love this watch. Everyone asks where I got it and are amazed at the prize. I LOVE IT! I wear it everywhere everyday (Except in the shower, you don''t wanna get the strap wet).
I gave this watch to my son and he was absolutely amazed. He never saw anything like this and noted it resembled a car dashboard! He really loved it and it was a wonderful surprise.
West Haven, CT
I have received many compliments on this watch, and I like the fact that I don''t have to "baby" it, I have taken this watch camping, sailing, hiking, etc, and have "banged" it repeatedly, and it still works like it did the first day!I had to replace the band, for one made out of paracord, because the original band got chewed by my mastiff, and I was thinking of sending it back to be replaced, but I like it even better now, so it''s a keeper for me!Thank you Stauer!
I recieved my first Stauer today for Fathers Day from my fiance. Although I have many watches, I truely believe this will be my favorite. It is simply "Perfect"! I think I may wear it to bed...
Camp Taji, Iraq
Unique at its'' best
This is a great watch. I was impressed with the workmanship put into this watch. I get numerous compliments.I am ready to buy again from Stauer.
Absolutely amazing wearing this watch... I like gift I have received
Great Conversation Piece!
I love the watch! Many compliments. I can''t believe how difficult it is for some people to read the time, of course they feel dumb after I show because it really is obvious. Duty fees for Canada was just over $20, and took less than 2 weeks. Thank you, Stauer!
St.Catharines, ON Canada
Okay. I''m hooked!
This watch...I mean time peace is quite beautiful, uniquely styled, slightly heavier than previous dress timepieces, eye catching, and affordable. I always loved watches-especially those that were ''different'' in their approach to keep time. Could not afford a Movado or Rolex. But I know that when I wear this timepiece, I feel that I could swing on the starts of time with them! I purchased this Stauer with the membership and why did I do that? Now, I don''t know which of my Stauer timepieces to wear! Although time will tell if this will stand the test of time, I know that I am a Staur customer for a very long time. Born in the 50s but boy, do I love the 30s!
Just received this and it''s now my favorite watch! Clean, classic design.... being in the Motor City this is couldn''t be a better fit!
Great guy present
I bought this watch for my boyfriend for his birthday and our 1st anniversary present. I had seen this watch years ago and had always wanted one but never could talk himself into buying it for himself. The watch is amazing! I have to remind him sometimes to wind it but normally he does pretty well at keeping it on time. The backside of the watch is fun for showing off. He loves the watch! I love him! Its a great watch for any guy, unless they don''t know how to tell him, then this watch might be a tad comfusing for them.
GOT THIS FOR MY HUSBAND FOR ARE 1 YR HE WAS SO EXCITED AND HE LOVES IT AND IS LOOKING FORWARD FOR ANOTHER WATCH FROM STAUER IT IS SO DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE NOW LOOKING AT THE SKELETON WATCH WE BOTH LIKE SOMETHING REALLY RARE AND THIS IS TRY IT YOU WILL LOVE IT
Stunning, unique, accurate
My wife bought me this watch as a wedding present, and I love it! The styling is classically unique and I never fail to get unsolicited compliments when I wear it. It is different than any watch I had ever seen. Keeps great time too... Always a plus.
New York, NY
Fascinating to others, beautiful to me; all in all, one of the most interesting watches you''ll ever own.
1930''s for 30th
I saw this watch in Reminisce magazine and had to order it for my 30th wedding anniversary gift. I got it and looks great. Had it a couple months now, keeps time fine, but there are 2 things I don''t like: the band and there is a sharp edge around the stainless face all the way around, not sure if this didn''t get buffed enough or if they''re all that way. I put an expansion band on, but watch is heavy for that. Will probably go to a bracelet type.
Can''t get over how cool it is!
I saw this in a magazine and missed the window of time to buy it. Then my daughter tracked it down on internet and gave it to me for christmas. Best present I''ve had in years.
HUBBY LOVE THIS WATCH # 2
i was looking thought the carolina country magazine! and seen this unique watch!!!! and i said to my wife,I got to have this watch,CAUSE THIS ONE OF A KIND and she said do u want this watch? and she order it . GOOOOO STAUER!!!!!!
Best Present EVER
My boyfriend bought me this watch before I went to South America on an exchange program for half a year. During my time away, this watch went to the jungle, white water rafting, archaeological sites, 4 wheeler trips through the Andes, and so much more. It held up so well, I love that it doesn''t need batteries, and I never owned a watch that received so many compliments! It''s a men''s watch, but I think it looks great on women and everyone loved it on me! Love this watch, love this company!
Birthday present for big 50
I have been looking at this watch for two years in magazines and online. Wife got it for me for the big 50.I love it! What a unique piece. Very solid. Great price.
This watch looks and works great! Very interesting display. I am allergic to certain alloys and the fact that the watch and buckle are stainless was important too. The only downside to this watch is that the numbers are not very bold and the red ones are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to read in dim lighting.
My mother got this for me for Christmas. It was supposed to arrive Saturday - I am told - but actually arrived via Fed Ex on Christmas Eve as we were opening presents. It''s really easy to read, looks great! A very, very unique watch.
Better than the pictures...
...which is pretty remarkable considering that the pictures are very nice. Unsuspected heft to the actual watch, reminiscent of a fine timepiece. Face is stunning to see, and nicely fitted and finished. I had heard some negative reviews on the non-engraved wording, but the font and letter finish are very nice and exude quality even without engraving. Perhaps the easiest "at a glance" watch I''ve owned - I "see" the hour hand first, and have a rough hour estimate without even focusing on the minute hand. And no battery is simply refreshing - I enjoy hearing the weighted winder spin as I move. Leather band is also better than expected. Worth more than I paid.
No matter where I go, someone always asks: "What kind of watch is that? How do you tell time on that thing?" And then I use that as an opportunity to tell them about Stauer's fine watches. Another great timepiece Stauer! Thanks!
Love The Watch
Purchased this watch for my husband. It is unique and elegant. He gets compliments on it often. Was a great gift!
stauer 1930 watch
Just recieved my watch, love the design. A real conversation piece. One wish is that it illuminated, but other than that love the watch!
the best reproduction in the world
My cousin bought the watch for me as a graduation gift and I wear it always with my suit because what is a gentleman who has no perfect time than a good jeweled watch.
a 1930s beauty
The most astounding watch I have seen as such a low price and high quality.
Everybody asks me about this great 1930 automatic watch
I purchased this 1930 automatic watch about 7 yrs ago, and I tell you that I get not only the joy of wearing it. But everywhere I go, people see it, and they get excited as I explain how it works. Because it's not a ordinary watch, it's extra special in the way it works, plus if you look carefully, you will notice that the 2 dials actually run backwards when you compare it to a standard watch. Everyone usually have to take 2 or 3 looks at the dials. No joke....
I am still so very thrilled that I purchased it, after 7 yrs, today I came online to find a new band for it, for I simply wore it out from everyday use. And I consider it a good bargain to get a new band for a watch that made to last a lifetime or more. My 2 sons have argued over who will get it, when I am gone. LOL Simply the best watch I have ever owned.

I love this watch. Everyone who looks at the watch is amazed, and wants to know where I purchased it. I suggest if you collect watches, this one is a great, inexpensive addition to your collection.
A must buy.

Gets Lots of Attentiion
After becoming tired from constantly replacing watch batteries, I ordered the Stauer 1930 Dashtronic as a last resort.
The Stauer 1930 Dashtronic is a very handsome watch and everyone who sees it asks, "what is that on your wrist?" When I tell them it is a watch they have to take a closer look.
I am so pleased with this watch that I just ordered two more Stauer automatic watches.
Keep making these well crafted and eye-catching watches at prices I can actually afford.
Other watches get stored away in the dead watch drawer but not the Stauer.
And no, I do not work for this company but I would be proud to.
I'm so glad i got this watch
I got this watch back in Nov for my birthday. I had been eyeing it for years. It went on sale around that time, and I got it
It is totally classic. It's a nice weight and size. The only thing i did was change it from a buckle clasp to a butterfly deployment clasp (5$ on eBay). Now, it got even better. Easy to put on and makes the watch look spectacular
This is definitely a must-have for any watch enthusiast! I cannot say enough good things about it
Takes a little getting used to the dials, but it’s a great watch. I bought this watch 7 years ago and it still work and looks great. This is the watch that turned me into a watch guy. Great quality!
Woodridge, Illinois (Chicago Suburbs)
Love this watch so much. I am always receiving complements on it, and it also acts as a great conversation maker due to its uniqueness.
I purchased this watch because I wanted something interesting in a timepiece that wasn't crammed with extra dials. I just need to keep up with the time. I also like the retro look of this watch.
This watch fits well. I have big wrists and have trouble finding bands that fit properly. The watch is weighty, easy to read and keeps time as it should.
Asheville, North Carolina
Art my husband bought a watch for me! I am outside much of the day and needed a good watch that would hold up!! He bought me the HARLEY! By the way I ride a Harley 883 as well. It stands up to everything I do! Looks RICH AND LADYLIKE,but really can take a beating!LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
Saw someone at a coffee shop wearing this watch and admired it. But now that I'm looking at it closely online, I think the text "Automatic 21 Jewels" really spoils the design. It would look much cleaner and nicer without it!
Have owned this incredible watch for many years...it still keeps excellent time and always draws attention and interest! Enjoy it so much, I bought a gold one, as a gift, for our son. The band on mine is finally wearing out....I'm visiting Stauer website looking for a replacement and decided to submit a review for this most unusual timepiece!
