In the most decisive sea battle of the Napoleonic Wars, the French navy and its allies lost a total of 22 warships. The British lost none. During the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, Britain’s Admiral Horatio Nelson became a national hero...but also lost his life. The Stauer Nelson Timepiece is modelled after the gold pocket watch found on Nelson after he was killed. Built by legendary British watchmaker Josiah Emery in 1787, the original watch recently sold at auction for more than £637,000.
This unique timepiece replicates the extremely rare, “regulator” style that counts minutes along the outside dial while hours and seconds are clocked in separate complications. The automatic, 20-jewelled Stauer Nelson features a handsome gold-fused stainless steel case, case back and crown. Mineral glass protects the antiqued, ivory-coloured dial, marked with bold black numerals. The watch fastens with a crocodile embossed leather strap and is waterproof to 3 ATM. Fits wrist 6 " to 8".
