In the early 1930’s watch manufacturers took a clue from Henry Ford’s favourite quote concerning his automobiles, “You can have any colour as long as it is black.” Black dialled watches became the rage especially with pilots and race drivers. Of course, since the black dial went just as well with a black tuxedo, the adventurer’s black dial watch easily moved from the airplane hangar to dancing at the nightclub. Now, Stauer brings back the “Noire”, a design based on an elegant timepiece built in 1936. Black dialled, complex automatics from the 1930’s have recently hit new heights at auction. One was sold for in excess of £305,000. We thought that you might like to have an affordable version that will be much more accurate than the original.
Basic black with a twist. Not only are the dial, hands and face vintage, but we used a 27-jewelled automatic movement. This is the kind of engineering desired by fine watch collectors worldwide. But since we design this classic movement on state of the art, computer-controlled Swiss built machines, the accuracy is excellent. Our Accuracy Standard is an astounding 99.94%. Three interior dials display day, month and date. The screw-down crown keeps the watch water resistant to 5 atms. And, we have priced the luxurious Stauer Gold plated Noire at a price to keep you in the black!
An offer that will make you dig out your old tux. The movement of the Stauer Noire wrist watch carries a years warranty. But first enjoy this handsome timepiece risk-free for 30 days.
