|How to build a better antique Unlock the timeless secrets of the watchmaking masters with the Stauer Avante Watch In today’s world of disposable technology, almost everything we own is guaranteed to have a better version available in six months. That’s why we built the Stauer Avante Watch to stick around. Our secret? Start with classic lines and designs, inspired by the masters of watchmaking. Add a modern movement. Then drop the price off a cliff. Hundreds of years ago, those talented men labored in their shops for months at time. Their goal was to launch a watch on a journey through generations of proud owners. Success was measured in decades, not days. Today, Stauer turns back the clock and embraces the true meaning of timelessness. The Avante is a near-flawless recreation of exactly the sort of vintage-inspired design that sets auction records among serious collectors. Because those rare originals command such astronomical prices, our goal was to deliver a practical, wearable version for much, much less. We poured over the horological history books and the designs of master watchmakers to compose this mechanical ode to fine craftsmanship. Take a closer look at the distinguished dial and you’ll find the hallmarks of a true luxury timepiece. The details are breathtaking, from the textured patterning of the dial to the classically sophisticated color scheme of gold, silver and blue (with a strategically placed shock of red on the 24-hour subdial). Wear it and you immediately get a sense of the weight, comfort and pride of ownership that comes with choosing timeless over trendy.
