Stuhrling The Emperor
Stührling Original The Emperor
In the history of Stührling Original, never has a watch been so anticipated, created so much excitement and delivered anywhere near this much shock value. Starting with the extra wide case (13mm) that sits atop your wrist with the crown and bow at twelve o’clock, it makes an impression that is hard to forget and is as distinctive as any timepiece in the world! However, the case is only a small part of the overall vision created by The Emperor. When you gander at its face, you will see one of the most striking open heart implementations that has ever graced a timekeeping device! And that’s not all. The circumference of the dial features a stunning mother-of-pearl ring which has been recessed into the dial and it really pops! The elegant applied Roman numerals are an exquisite complement to The Emperor. Named The Emperor for its “open heart” exhibition in homage to the famous fable of The Emperor and the Nightingale, this magnificent timepiece lives up to its title. The fable is a wonderful story in which the beautiful voice of a singing bird nurses the Emperors failing heart back to health. Once saved by the nightingale, the Emperor’s heart was indeed transformed. Once a self-centered and cold hearted ruler, the Emperor became altruistic and pleasurable with a beautiful and tender heart which all those in his kingdom could easily see! The Emperor has all the usual Stührling Original features that we have become synonymous with: 21-jewel self-winding mechanical movement; Krysterna™ crystals (front and back); 5 ATM water resistant; alligator embossed genuine French leather strap with a push-button dual deployant clasp; decorated screw down exhibition case- back; Côtes de Genève decoration on the movement with blued steel screws and a Damier finish on the Stührling signed rotor; solid 316L surgical grade stainless steel case; the rose-gold executions are fused with 16K rose gold; and a gem cabochon set in the knurled edge onion style crown. All in all, The Emperor is about as dressy of a watch as you will ever find and will get you looks, stares, conversation and complements galore at even the most formal of affairs!
