A collection inspired by the 70s.
Compound 6 modelsor rather 4 with different sizes, the Strarer Tourer collection is the first of the brand that is not offered in chronograph. Each model is available in 5 colors (blue, black, green, brown, gold), which gives you the opportunity to choose between 30 combinations ! This time, the Swiss brand is committed to 3 hands with date, GMT or triple date (annual calendar). Even with this barrel box that made the success of the Synchro, Legera and Curve-Chrono collections, this watch has several crowns, giving it a very well-known style at that time and used for diving watches: the supercompressor. An atypical provision that reinforces its retro look and shows once again that Straton is no exception to its rule and affirms its uniqueness. The same for the bracelets: a steel with 7 links in a jubilee style, then perforated leathers with Italian seams. With such attributes, charm operates instantly.
