We take it for granted today, but in 1939, new technologies pushed us headlong into the modern age. Pilots flew the first transatlantic commercial flights connecting New York to London. Simultaneously, brilliant physicists like Enrico Fermi were discovering atomic power. Both of those advances led to the development of the most accurate watch the world has ever known: The Stauer Transatlantic Atomic Watch. This vintage-inspired, aviator-styled watch uses the most advanced time reading technology ever developed. The Transatlantic actually receives the time directly from the world's most accurate atomic clock, in the Cumbrian mountains. The massive clock defines the time standard for the nation and is so accurate that it only loses one second every 20 MILLION YEARS!
To honour the adventurous spirit of the first transatlantic pilots, we based the Transatlantic Atomic Watch design on historical timepieces worn by the daredevil aviators of the 1930s. While crossing the vastness of the ocean, they often relied on the navigating functions of their pilot's watches. But those original versions didn't have the"brainpower" of the Transatlantic. As a matter of fact, today's commercial pilots and air traffic controllers use this same atomic clock technology to keep fleets of commuter jets safely on course and on time. The Transatlantic combines the styling of those cockpit classics with the world's most precise timekeeping technology. Inside the handsome, gold plated case, a distinctive dial marks both analog and digital time. The Transatlantic secures with a genuine brown leather strap. It's a powerful watch. Not powerful enough to guarantee that all your flights will be on time. But at least you'll never be late.
