This Vintage Retro looking watch is very simple yet sophisticated; the look is a distinguished classic look. I purchased this as a daily wear with my suits. The size dial is perfect, leather band is ok; except if you have a small wrist will require another hole punched in it to fit snug; otherwise it's absolutely perfect. Comes shipped in a very nice Sturhling Watch Box. First, Sturhling and definitely not the last. ***
I bought this watch as a thank you gift for a friend who really helped me out when I was in a pinch. He chose this piece and I actually tried to talk him into something else, the picture just wasn't doing it for me. But it was what he wanted. When it arrived, it was beautifully packaged. And when my friend opened the box, both he and his wife gasped. So did I. The watch is simply stunning! The crystal is thick and has a vintage magnifying glass look to it. The band is beefy and screams "Quality!" Its a bigger watch but well proportioned. This was an outstanding purchase choice and I will definitely shop this brand in the future.

Gave one to each of my teen grandsons for their birthdays and they seemed manly in appearance yet were easy to operate and had date and second dials. They are wearable for them now and hopefully can be used into college years. The face is large but my grandsons have large wrists so they looked great.
Excellent piece that is worth much more than what I paid. I wanted to purchase this in blue as well but it's out of stock. You can't go wrong purchasing this watch.

Very nice watch it is super accurate with its swiss quartz movement. The styling is way above the price paid and the attention to detail is unmatched in its price range. I'm Happy I bought it for a gift and kept it myself. I ended up giving another watch that cost three times as much and kept this one, now that is being pleased, thank you for a excellent product and your excellent service O.Co

Watch face looks fantastic, but the band, as I think other reviews have mentioned, is extremely stiff. I'm hoping it will loosen up a bit over time but it's constantly uncomfortable at the time being. I didn't think I had a small wrist but I also have to close the band on the tightest possible buckle notch. Anyway a new band can be found if necessary, but this is definitely an impressive watch, perfectly simple to set time and date. Also comes in a bit of an eye-popping box and appears to be very well made.

This is a rather large watch but a beautiful time piece, at that. Looking forward to wearing it over the next few weeks and will report back concerning quality.

The watch is a solid and sturdy for everyday use. It has classic styling and looks like a slick watch from the early 1960s. Don Draper might wear it on the weekend. The dial is easy to read. If you like no fills and clean design, this a great piece. The casing is somewhat large and thick, but not obnoxiously so. The biggest drawback is the band. It is low quality leather, quite rigid and needs breaking in or replacement. Also the band has white stitching that detracts from the elegance of the dial.

I have ordered a few Sturling watches and the quality never disappoints. This watch is classy, stands out without being "too much". I love this watch

i recently purchased this watch for a milestone birthday for my husband. i was completely satisfied with the quality of this watch. it's a great looking watch and he was pleasantly surprised. the only problem we had was setting the correct date. it took several tries to find the exact position to set correctly. but it looks great and the service from overstock is super. i had a question on warranty and they went above and beyond to help me out. i have had all positive experiences with overstock.com and will buy from them again and again.
Beautiful watch. Easy to read time. Large date very easy to read-no squinting required. Keeping perfect time along with my atomic Casio. I periodically check the 2 together and the Shark is always spot on. Curved case and crystal make it comfortable on the wrist. Well worth the price.
The watch looks different in your hands than in the picture; it is the same watch but the picture does not do it justice. It is a big watch so if you do not have a big wrist you may want to try another watch (look at the listed dimension compared to other watches). If you have a small to average sized wrist the case may be longer than the width of your wrist. I am an athletic 6' 230 lbs with above average wrist and I feel as if my wrist is just big enough for this watch to look good on me.It is a very classy watch; it is simultaneously retro and modern. It looks more retro in the picture but has a modern aspect to it when you see it in person. The padded leather strap is a plus and the packaging is very nice. I just got it so I can not comment on the durability of it although it seems a solid watch.
i like the retro look with the curved crystal. i work alot in the dark and the hands are very lumenous. solid and heavy but very comfortable to wear. band is an exceptional padded leather strap. as good as i have seen on watches 4 times as high in price. nice purchase!
I bought this watch as a gift and I was surprised that it looked even better than on the picture. I like the fact that the watch is pretty big but still looks classy. It comes in a very nice box. I bought it a few weeks ago so I can't tell much about quality but so far I'm really happy I bought it.
I Think the Stuhrling Original Shark is a great watch. It looks good and easy to operate. The watch is an excellent gift for a male family member. It comes in a box that is well designed and has everything you need to protect and keep your watch clean. I recommend the watch for everybody.
I got this watch for my son and he loves it. He was so delighted with this watch and the design he even went onto the computer to find out about the designer and all the other things he has done. You can not go wrong with this watch it is beautiful and very well presented in the box.
