With it’s unmistakable raised and rounded bezel and simple no nonsense dial the Deluxe gauge by Stewart Warner has spanned generations of automobile enthusiasts- providing accurate engine feedback with no bells and whistles. How can one improve a classic? That was Timedrivers’ challenge as we sat down to design the Deluxe watch. The flat mineral glass crystal is firmly retained by the 47 mm polished stainless steel bezel machined to within .001 of the original. The flat aluminum dial features the same silkscreened white numbers on flat black surface with precise hours and minutes ticked off by the spire shaped hands. The knurled pattern crown is easy to grasp and offsets the polish of the bezel. The Deluxe is waterproof to 30 meters and the Japanese quartz movement is shock resistant. The medium grain black leather strap with polished stainless steel buckle completes the simple elegance of the Deluxe watch.
