After TONS of research, mall shopping, on-line looking, window browsing, etc. I finally settled on this Stuhrling Automatic as a dress watch and Christmas gift. The recipient definitely has a trendy style, but he is undeniably diverse. Cowboy by morning dressed in grungy jeans and boots with spurs, guitarist band member by night - his wardrobe reflects both his style and varying interests. His impeccable taste often finds him dressed in anything from Hugo Boss to Banana Republic and I wanted a watch reflective of his classy style, but unique enough to compliment his edgy hip vibe -- all of this of course - with a timeless elegance. The blue in the picture looks a bit "commercial" - but I can assure you that every little detail with this watch, including its packaging and presentation yells high fashion and class. The window into the clock's inner functions and leather band are key components of this watch- setting it aside from its competition. The watch arrived timely, with unique presentation (approximate 10" x 6" x 6" package), tons of reading material, and looked as equisite in the box as it does on. The recipient LOVED the watch! The experience not only with Overstock.com but also the Stuhrling brand will absolutely make me a return customer. The only feedback I have is the watch band was tricky to figure out how to size - but we found help at a local *****. No tools needed - we made it more difficult than it really needed to be.
This watch is stunning. I was surprised on was how big it actually is. It was a gift for my husband, and it took him a little getting used to. Also, for a leather strap it opened like it was a metal strap; not a bad thing, just different.
