Virginia-based Stauer has crafted a watch with an 800-year-old coin at the heart of it.
The Crusader has been described as a must for both history buffs and timepiece collectors alike by the brand, with its feature of a silver denier of the Crusades dating back to 1163-1201 A.D.
Struck by Bohémond III, ruler of the Principality of Antioch, the authentic coin features a cross pattée with equidistant flaring arms within a circle.
The Crusader Watch complements this historic coin with a brown leather strap and a 21-jewel movement to ensure accuracy and reduce internal friction.
Additionally, this watch marks the hours in a narrow window that shows a rotating inner dial and includes the words “Carpe Diem.”
