    They make a Russian version, too, that's powered by 27 rubles.

    Needless to say, Farcebook somehow figured out I was taking photos of magazine ads for Stauer, and now Stauer ads keep popping up in my FookFace feed. Here's a doozy of a quartz watch, now dubbed the Piezo Watch, honoring the watch that revolutionized timekeeping in 1969. Just in case you need a good stocking stuffer ©

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    I imagine you could find Five Things about them.
    Here's their address:
    14101 Southcross Drive W.
    Ste 155, Dept ASW148-01
    Burnsville Minnesota 55337 USA

    Between their "history" and the family of zombie brands heralding from an industrial park in Hollywood FL, you could probably write a book on cheesy fictional luxury marketing.
