The Negotiator - 42mm Swiss Automatic

Wrist Size
How to Measure Your Wrist

In order to select the correct band length for your wrist, you'll need to know your wrist size.

Measure your wrist with a soft tape measure around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch.

If you don't have a soft tape measure handy, you can measure it by wrapping a piece of string or ribbon around the part of your wrist that you like to wear your watch. Mark the length and measure it with a ruler in inches. This is your wrist size.

If your wrist size falls in between 2 lengths (ie. a 6.25" or 7.0" wrist), you have to know your preference - would you enjoy a shorter band with less tail, or a longer band with more tail?

Depending on your style, remember to consider if you like to wear your watch looser in the Summer than in the Winter.

Layaway Program


In a nutshell, if you want to put a watch on layaway, you must make payments of at least $100/month.

Here’s how to get started… 

1) Browse our site and choose your favorite watch.

Terms and Conditions - Only watches are eligible for layaway. Merchandise such as straps and accessories are not eligible. Custom watches are not eligible. 

Deposits - Your initial minimum deposit must be $100 and must be paid within three days of requesting the layaway option. Your deposit will serve as your down payment for items placed on the layaway plan.

Terms - A $100 deposit and $100 monthly installments are required to stay current in our layaway program. When your initial payment of $100 is made, this binds you to the layaway plan agreement of completing a minimum of $100 monthly installment payments due on the 1st of each month.  

Invoices and Payments - Invoices and Payments for the layaway plan will be processed via PayPal. You must provide a valid email address to receive payment information and make payments towards layaway plan. Invoices will be sent before the payment is due and will include your statement information

Late Payments - Payments that are received after the 5th of the month will result in an additional $10.00 fee charged for late payment. Late payment fees will not be applied to the principle balance of the layaway plan items. 

Cancellation Fee - Any layaway plan account that is cancelled by the buyer or terminated by the seller due to non-payment before the maturity of the account will result in a $30.00 cancellation fee. 

"Synergy is what happens when one plus one equals ten or a hundred or even a thousand. It’s the mighty result when two or more respectful human beings determine together to go beyond their preconceived ideas to meet a great challenge. It’s about the passion, the energy, the ingenuity, the excitement of creating a new reality that is far better than the old reality." ~Stephen Covey, The 3rd Alternative

Our mechanical watches embrace sustainability, art and longevity. In a nutshell, mechanical watches are made to last. They are designed to be repaired instead of replaced. With proper care and cleaning, they can outlast generations. Take a look at any watch museum and you’ll find timepieces from the 1700’s ticking away.

Mechanical watches are also considered eco-friendly because they use a renewable energy source (the movement of your wrist) for power. They don’t require batteries but it’s a good idea to have the inside of the watch cleaned and relubricated every 5 years or so to keep it running smoothly.

In regards to sustainability, another advantage of purchasing a Swiss Celeste automatic is that not only are the dials handcrafted here but the watches are assembled and regulated here in Oregon too. Any needed servicing down the line will be done here. Compared to having an Omega, Rolex or other Swiss brand serviced, the process is greener because you don’t have to send your watch overseas (or wait 3-6 months for its return) which minimizes the carbon footprint of having your watch serviced.




Power Reserve

The STP Caliber uses a longer and thinner mainspring resulting in a boosted power reserve of 44 hours - almost two days.



STP1-11 has an accuracy of -3s to +7s/day, resulting in a maximum variation of 10 seconds/day. On the wrist this would result in an on wrist performance of +/- 2 to 4 seconds as per research done by WatchGuy (Read the review). 


The STP1-11 features 26 jewels. This extra jewel is used to support the top of the barrel arbor. The barrel bridge can easily wear out so having a jewel here increases the longevity.
