The Louie


The Louie

Take one look at Stuhrling Original’s “Louie,” and you’ll find it difficult to look away, because the shear amount of effort placed into creating this watch from concept to finish is nothing short of remarkable! Let’s start with the naming of the watch. This timepiece was named after King Louis XIV, France’s Sun King, who held the longest rule in European history. This watch was named after a king, and it certainly looks like it’s fit for a king!

A highlight on the movement in this watch, the Louie is a master calendar! For those who don’t know what is a master calendar, it is a timepiece that displays the day, the date, and the month, and this watch has all of those. Up top at 12 o’clock is the date box. You will find the day sub-dial at 4 o’clock, the month at 7 o’clock, and just for good measure, we’ve added a third sub-dial at 6 o’clock that’s a 24 hour indicator! And the most amazing part about it: the Louie is a mechanical automatic watch! It takes an incredible feat of engineering to create a timepiece that accurately tracks time as a master calendar without the aid of computer chips, quartz crystals, or batteries, and this watch does it all!

Louie - Case Back

In terms of case design, the Louie is unique in the entirety of the Stuhrling collection. Of all our watches, this timepiece is the only one that features a crenelated bezel, that is, the gear shaped design. This is featured both at the front of the watch and on the exhibition case back that shows off the ratchet mechanism that winds the watch with the movement of your arm. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind Stuhrling watch, and a master calendar at that, then the Louie is the watch for you! Don’t miss it!
