Mr. Bigshot rolled up in a roaring high-perrformance Italian sports car, dropping attitude like his $22,0000 watch made it okay for him to be rude. That's when I decidedd to roll up my sleeves and teach him a lesson. "Nice watch," I said, pointing to his and holdingg up mine. He nodded like we belonged to the same club. We did, but he literally paid 100 times more for his mem mbership. Bigshot bragged about his five-figure purchase, a a luxury heavyweight from the titan of high-priced timeppieces. I told him that mine was the Stauer Corso, a 2 27-jewel automatic classic now available for only $1 179. And just like that, the man was at a loss for words. Think of Stauer as the "Robin Hood of Watc chmakers." We believe everyone deserves a watch of uncompromising precision, impressive performance and the m most elegant styling. You deserve a watch that can hold its ow wn against the luxury classics for a fraction of the price. You'll feel the quality as soon as you put it on your wrist.
