I purchased this watch as a second watch for my best friend in life, and gave it to him for his birthday. He needs a watch that winds up and doesn't have a battery. After not even 6 months the watch stopped working. After calling Overstock.com to have the watch replaced I was told it was under warranty. I was instructed to contact Stuhrling to have the watch warrantied. When I went to eh Stuhrling site it stated I had to "PAY" to have the watch warrantied and that if they felt it was not a warranty issue then I would have to pay for the repairs. I feel that a product should last for much longer than 6 months and that a company should stand behind their product. They should at least look at the product and give you the option of if you want it fixed or not if it isn't under warranty, not have you "pay" up front and then decided if you owe them more or not.
I have this watch in rose gold and black. I would like to warn everyone here that the description is highly misleading. The strap is NOT "genuine french leather". I dont know where people are getting this idea. under the light it is very clear it is some cheap glossy plastic on a very thin leather backing. The strap is actually painful to wear, and due to the inflexibility, it cannot even fit properly on the wrist. You WILL have to spend additional money on a proper strap. Also have no clue what quick release pins its talking about here...its a strap. With a buckle. Thats it. The box it came in became damaged the moment i opened it as well, due to poor QC.
This is a very striking attractive watch. My wife purchased as a gift it was very nicely packaged and makes a statement of quality. The leather band, and the "skeleton" appearance makes this a nice gift or a watch that you will want to wear.
I have really enjoyed this watch, i always wanted an automatic with a swiss movement, and a great leather band. Its classy, functional ,and keeps great time. I would recommend this time piece to everyone that likes something rich from the past..
This is a beautiful watch and looks extremely classy for the price I paid for it. I was surprised the by quality of the packaging for this Stuhrling watch and the 1 year factory warranty included inside the package like a gift card was a plus. The picture of the watch does not show the intricate detail of this watch in comparison to looking at it in person. It has an amazing quality for the price and I strongly agree that this watch is the "Bang for the Buck".
This was my second choice. After receiving the first one, I was totally disappointed by the HUGE size of the case and band. I recieved this one today and was absolutely thrilled! It's beautiful, unique and quite stunning...to say the least. I actually like it better than my first choice and I'm so glad I bought it. This one's definitely a keeper. The size is perfect. Like Goldilocks... not too small and not too big... it's just right! LOL! I'm an extremely picky shopper and will not settle for something that I'm not totally satisfied with. I can't wait to give it to my boyfriend. I know he will receive countless compliments. The quality is superb and the style is unique, rich and handsome without appearing too fancy. It can be worn on any occasion. I hope this helps others when making their decision to purchase this watch. You will not be disappointed. The price can't be beat for this type of watch and I would highly recommend buying it.
