They dared fate. They did the impossible. From the earth to the heavens, the early aviators risked everything in their pursuit of history and glory. In planes made of wood and canvas, they took to the skies as daredevils, pushing boundaries and accomplishing feats few could even conceive.
Every major aviation milestone was accompanied by the deaths of brave pilots, all seeking something we now take for granted. Crossing the English Channel, crossing the country non-stop, crossing the Atlantic solo, circumnavigating the globe — these aerial feats captivated the world just two decades after the Wright Brothers made their historic first flight.
In an age before computers, these men and women of the sky needed a timepiece they could depend on, and based on their own specifications we've crafted the Stauer Aviator Chronograph Watch.
Handsomely set in durable gold-finished stainless steel, this is the kind of watch that's up for adventure. As it's a chronograph, this timepiece has three subdials for seconds, minutes and hours for use as a stopwatch: an important feature if you're planning a long flight. In case you end up in the drink, this watch is water resistant up to 3 ATM, and its black leather strap enhances its rustic charm.
Normally a watch like this would cost you over a thousand dollars, but because Stauer cuts out the middleman, we're able to drop a few zeros and give this striking timepiece a down to earth! Based on one of the oldest and most trusted timepiece designs ever made, this style of watch was good enough for those pilots in the early days of aviation. It was good enough to serve as a timer in the modern Olympics. It was good enough for explorers embarking on polar expeditions. Isn't it good enough for your wrist?
