Let me start by saying that I have a small, yet decent watch collection of 6 pieces currently. I have been hunting this cuvette down for sometime, and when I finally received the piece, I was very excited. It is a classy casual watch with a slightly-wider band than another Stuhrling that I own. The face is well-proportioned and the milling, as always with Stuhrlings, is exceptional. The skeleton back is a nice little feature and the winder is noticeable unintrusive on the back of the hand when flexing the wrist backwards. It really is a nice piece and I commonly wear it with jeans and Khakis, though not as appropriate in the office/suit environment. However, this watch is not for the average watch person - unless you plan to make it your only watch - due to the watch's only real flaw .... the power reserve. If you take this watch off and leave it for 2 days, she goes to sleep. When the watch is motioned it comes right back to life, but it is clear that this watch must be on a watch oscillator when not being worn. Otherwise, you have to wear it every other day. For many people, this is no problem, but I am trying to keep all of my watches in rotation so it can be an issue from time to time. I had planned on sending the piece back when I realized the lighter power reserve of about 30-36 hours, but it is such a good looker that I decided to keep it on. Purchase it, wear it, and enjoy!
I really like this watch. This is actually the second one that I purchased as the first was lost. The only issue that I have with this watch is the accuracy. The first one that I had ran fast and the one I have now runs slow. Not a big deal, but minor time adjustments are needed ever two or three days. If you want that accuracy - buy a Rolex... An automatic watch is a mechanical watch - no batteries... You can wind it manually or it automatically winds itself with the movement of your wrist. If you wear it everyday, you never have to wind it. Most mechanical watches are really thick and are awkward to wear because your shift sleeve will not go over it. This watch is thinner and classic - really is nice.
This is a great watch but remember you need to allways wear it or have it on an auto winder to maintain current time and date. For someone like me who trades off watches this is just another pain I choose not to deal with. If you choose to purchase this remember to buy an auto winder to go with it.
This is the most beautiful watch i have ever owned!!! But a screw came loose in the gears and now it doesn't work. I've sent it off to get fixed and am ready to put it back on wrist.

As others have stated you must wear the watch to keep it moving. It is easy to set the time and date after the watch sits for a day. It's the most beautiful watch in my 7 watch collection. I bought other watches like Victorinox and Wenger for their accuracy and dependability. I bought this watch strictly on looks and it certainly does not disappoint. Almost like wearing a work of art on your wrist! The band is very stylish and comfortable. I can see wearing this watch in any situation.

This is a beautiful addition to my watch collection. Unfortunately I don't wear it every day so when I decide to wear it the watch has stopped and the calendar has to be re-adjusted to current date. Call me lazy but it discourages me from even picking it up. Too bad because it is very handsome.

Very nice automatic watch. You have to wear it regularly: after one day not wearing the watch it stops. It seams to run a little bit too fast: one minute per day. So far I'm satisfied with the watch. Handling and shipment though were very expensive compared to the price of the watch.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality looks allright
This is my first Stuhrling watch, and I am extremely pleased with the quality, style, appearance and functionality of this watch. Everything from the packaging to the transparent view of the internal working of the 20-jewel mechanism, to the comfortable, fine leather band evokes high quality, and I would gladly purchase another.

I started collecting watches in May 2010 and I have 24 watches now.So far 5 are Sthurling and I have 5 planned purchases for Sthurlings Automatics.The grey corvette is quietly striking.It a distiguished timepiece that when I look at it I still don't know how the movement was put in thewatch body! The body shaped in such a way it fits very comfortably on your wrist.This watch has that look that never goes out of style,a fighter pilot gould wear it to a bag boy this watch is for all groups and ages.
Most watches out there in this price range are pretty standard fare, and not automatic. This Stuhrling is very individual, well designed, and seems to be all they say it is. I will say that I have received several compiments. One other thing: don't exercise vigorously with this watch. After doing just that for a couple of hours, I noticed that the watch was about 15 minutes fast. That is the only time it has done that, so I imagine the self-winding mechanism was overwound? Dunno. Probably too nice looking a watch to be exercising in anyway...
Beautiful watch, works dressed up and casual. Instructions are a bit confusing - I'm assuming what is meant by not adjusting the date between 2100 and 0400 is when the watch reads between 9pm and 4am, but you wouldn't know the AM/PM when first receiving the watch - a minor point. For a small wrist the strap is a bit long.
I received this watch as a graduation gift. I'm not that into watches, but I wear it on dress up occasions. Due to the little research I've done on the watch & this company, they both seem to be very classy. I would call it a great upscale watch that's not cheap, but not overly expensive. I've only had it for a couple weeks, and the only concern I may have is the wind up feature on the back. I believe its similar to how watches you use to be before batteries-I just hope I don't have to wear it everyday in order for it to operate.
The watch arrived almost instantly even though it was scheduled to take 5-10 days. Stunning packaging, easy to understand users manual and support materials. Runs like top, elegant old world design and craftsmanship. While I have only been wearing it a while I'd reinforce that the date setting that cannot be done between 9:00-3:00 can be confusing and produce some anxiety in users unfamiliar with automatic watches. I suggest instead saying place the hour and minute hand on the 6 and then set date, etc. this way you are defining for people what they need to do, versus NOT to do which is to random. doesn't say why, and this way its not confusing. Otherwise, it gets 5 stars for styling, fit, weight, visibility, and craftsmanship which are superb. Once I have worn it a few months I can determine more.
It is a very attractive men's watch. It took some time to understand the directions as it is a self winding watch. You must be careful not to change the date when the clock is between designated times indicated in the instuctions. Not sure why, but it is a bit confusing. It keeps great time and is an incredible deal. I am especially happy with the service from overstock.com! I communicated online to ask a question about my order and did not have to wait at all for service.
