Other: Here at watchsteez.com, we don't discriminate on brand name or price point - This rare and unassuming Louis Super Automatic is a perfect example of our "less is more" philosophy. It looks deadly with a bespoke suit or equally as stylish with a plain t-shirt and jeans, commanding just enough attention without going over the top. The unique textured metallic silver dial with glossy black outer track is without a doubt the most attractive element of this watch, especially with the subtle line of red "Super Automatic" text. The dial changes tones depending on the lighting condition and the stainless steel case with twisted lugs wears extremely well on the wrist.
