The price was substantially lower than the same item offered by other sources.The product actually looked much better "in the flesh" than in the pictures.Delivery was very prompt and service was excellent.Comparable watches from other sources cost from ten to 100 times as much. Only a few decades of ownership will tell if the Stuhrling holds up as well. My experience with a Rolex is that any mechanical watch will need periodic service/overhauls, so I expect this Stuhrling will continue to impress as a genuine bargain,
I was unsure about the "Rose" Gold Plating but it looks great and quite masculine. The circumference of the watch was larger than I expected but looks great and calls attention to itself. In fact, just today at church, a four year old girl in the class I help with told me she liked my watch - too cute. If you have a wrist on the smaller size like I do (mine is 7.375 inches), you will probably want to have a jeweler put another hole in the band. All in all, this is an excellent looking watch and keeps the time well.
This was my first time using the website and, I have to say, it was a pleasurable experience. The watch itself is great. It keeps good time and looks nice (if I do say so myself). It was delieverd on the day it was supposed to be. No problems whatsoever!
I fretted for weeks about what I would use as my "totally silent personal timing device" before I settled on this fine watch. It was excellent: Clear, reassuring, steady. Then I went to a wedding the following week and received many compliments. I plan to wear the watch every day.
This is now my "New" favorite watch. I collect watches and this one is GREAT. Easy to read, a beautiful face and never needs winding, or a battery. Keeps perfect time & is very comfortable. Not bulky, like some auto watches. Buy one !!!
The only thing that we haven't figured out is how to fix the date; also it doesn't show the month, only the date, which is somewhat frustrating. Apart from that it is a very nice looking watch, and we are very pleased. The picture made the leather band look black, but it is actually brown. That was what we preferred, but if you want black, this isn't it.
This watched kept great time for about 4 months...... Then something broke loose in the movement. Now the time is correct twice a day, 2:33am & 2:33pm. I'll have to send it back to Stuhrling for what I hope will be warranty work. It did work great......until it didn't.
I find some of the newer large watches to be too large. I was a bit hesitant after reading the comments on this watch saying how large it was, but now that I have it and have been wearing it for a while, I really like the size of it. It is bigger than my previous watch, but not as large as some other watches I have seen. The watch has a very clean and impressive look to it ... easy to read ... Overall I am very pleased with it.
