As the 1930s roared, watchmakers borrowed wisdom from Henry Ford: “You can have any colour as long as it is black.” This simple but profound philosophy witnessed the emergence of black-dialled timepieces, which rapidly grew in popularity, gracing the wrists of pilots, racers, and even the elite in tuxedos at opulent ballrooms.
Reintroducing the allure of that epoch, Stauer proudly presents the Noire, a watch echoing the design sensibilities of a 1936 masterpiece. While auctions see similar vintage black dialled timepieces fetch prices upwards of £305,000, our vision with the Noire was to offer that vintage charm without the exorbitant price tag.
The Noire is not just a homage to the past; it’s a fusion of yesteryears’ design and today’s craftsmanship. Its dial and hands ooze vintage charm, harmoniously driven by a 27-jewel automatic movement. This juxtaposition of classic aesthetics and modern engineering ensures precision that challenges even the finest watches, with our Accuracy Standard standing at a remarkable 99.94%.
Additional intricacies like the three interior dials – showcasing day, month, and date – further elevate the Noire. Ensuring its resilience, the watch’s screw-down crown guarantees water resistance up to 5 ATM. And for a touch of luxury, it’s embraced in gold plating.
