We see a lot of timepieces, but only one can be the Stauer Watch of the Year. And you’re looking at it. First, I’d like to draw your attention to the photo on this page, because part of the beauty of this watch is that it makes a glorious first impression. It conveys a level of seriousness, but with a certain restrained modesty. Second, this watch has an automatic 21-jewel movement, meaning it’s powered by your own movement. Third, this watch has nothing to hide. With an open heart on the front showing the escapement wheel and an exhibition back revealing everything that’s inside, you can be in no doubt about what makes this horological masterpiece tick. Fourth, allow me to explain some of the Champion’s complications, because it’s packed with features. The Champion has a date window at 3 o’clock, a day window at 9 o’clock, and both a sun/moon dial and a 24-hour display at 12 o’clock. Fifth and finally, the best part. Everything you just read should put this watch in a dangerously high price bracket. But we don’t have time for that. The Stauer Watch of the Year should be within reach of the savvy consumer, and so the Champion carries a winning price.
