Some watches do much more than just give you the correct time — they connect you to history. Our Stauer Brigadier Watch is a direct descendant of the first timepieces worn by the British Army during World War I. At the start of the 20th century, wristwatches were not standard issue, so many officers bought their own. Those "Officer's Watches" proved vital during combat operations and after the war, the toughest timepieces continued to tick away as horological badges of honor.
We've recreated the look of those vintage designs with a classic black-on-white dial set inside a sturdy, stainless steel case. Two must-haves for the military were bold, easy-to-read numerals and uncompromising precision. The advanced movement inside the Brigadier oscillates at an amazing 32,768 times per second to deliver dependable accuracy. You'll even find an isolated seconds subdial at the 6 o'clock position, a key feature that help men on the frontlines achieve victory.
The best part about this watch is that you don't need to command troops to appreciate its timeless style and faithful function. Paired with a genuine leather band, the gold-finished Brigadier is equal parts officer... and gentleman.
