Stauer Swiss Military Chronograph Watch

Stauer Swiss Military Chronograph Watch

If you are a serious watch collector then this in one watch that HAS to be in your collection. Stauer set out to build the World’s toughest Watch and The Guiness Book of World Records agreed with them that they have.

This is a limited edition watch of just 1000 units. So why is the World’s Toughest Watch, well it can reach a record diving depth of 20,000 feet or 3 miles, as you would be pushed to dive to 1% of that depth it’s probably overkill but at least you know if you drop it over the side of a boat it will be still functioning if you can find it again! Then to show how hard the titanium case is Stauer shot at it with a shotgun and then finally for good measure they attached it to a stick of explosives (along with a Rolex dive watch for comparison) and blew it up. The Stauer survived the experience and was still functioning, sadly the Rolex didn’t make it. So if you are a diver, hunstmans or just play around with explosives for fun, you’ll be pleased to know your watch will take everything you throw at it and keep functioning. Actually as someone who constantly damages watches this sounds like my kind of watch!

In case you are wondering how this watch is so tough take a look at the photograph of the side view of the case and notice how the back is shaped like a dome to carry the pressure loads, actually the watch is almost spherical with the curved crystal. If you can manage to damage this watch then quite frankly nothing is going to be safe of your wrist.
Highly recommended.
