The Stauer 1930 Dashtronic Watch has a look inspired by the machine-age designs of the 1930s. Everything – from cars to toasters – had a sleek, streamlined look then. Even watches were influenced by the industrial designers of the period, and a new watch complication was introduced. Instead of hands, time was displayed by a “jumping mechanism,” which displayed numerals on a dial and looked like a speedometer in a car. This 1930 Dashtronic watch doesn’t use a real jumping mechanism, but it does look like those watches. It has 21 jewels and is water-resistant to 3-ATM. It has a stainless steel case and a black aligator-embossed leather band. This is an automatic watch, meaning no winding and no batteries are needed. It has a mineral crystal over the time dial and a clear back so you can see the watch works as they … work. The watch case is 1.5″, and the band is 9.5″ long and fits a 7-8.5″ wrist. The limited-edition Stauer 1930 Dashtronic Watch sells for $99.00.
