In an age where the time is instantly accessible via a myriad of digital devices — old fashioned style is making a comeback in the fashion world in the form of pocket watches. In 2010 Sotheby’s reported a strong demand for antique pocket watches. Last year, Sotheby’s sold a small early 19th century pocket automation for an astounding $774,000, almost double its estimated value.
With antique pocket watches being coveted at auction houses, the market for new pocket watches is also on the rise, and designers are taking advantage. At Stauer we are vigilant about spotting trends that are on their way to becoming tradition. So we created a timepiece destined to not only join the ranks of these comeback artists, but set the pace.
Our open-faced pocket watch exhibits a finely detailed guilloche face almost like fine parchment. But, don’t let its vintage charm throw you. This watch is a modern day marvel of craftsmanship. Your movement is all it needs to operate. A high precision automatic mechanism comprised of 22 jewels keeps impeccable time. A quartet of subdials track day and date including a 24-hour sun and moon dial. Capture the essence of precision timing while recapturing the elegance of a bygone era with our Gentleman’s Watch.
