I purchased this watch because I was looking for something different from a traditional ladies' watch. I had read previous reviews that said although the watch was relatively big, it still looked good on a smaller wrist. I found that to be very true - it just looked a little oversized, which is the look I was going for. I think this watch would also look great on a guy as well -- it's just a great sized watch. My initial impression was, "Wow! I can't believe this watch is mine." I still think that every day I look down at it -- and that is the sign you truly love something. Stuhrling packages its watches very well - I am always impressed. I was a little worried about the dome of the crystal. I found that it was not a big concern. The crystal does have a cut-dome shape to it, but it doesn't hinder the viewing of the face, nor does it stick out enough to get hit all the time. It's really beautiful and unique and adds a lot to the design. The face is a gorgeous, glowy copper. The numbers are these lovely Art Deco-style numbers that add a ton of style and are luminous and instantly visible at night, which I really like. The hands also light up. The band is a nice, not too wide brown leather. The band isn't shiny or cheap like some watches; it compliments the watch nicely. I try to keep it from water when I wash my hands, but realistically, I'm not too optimistic about it holding up beyond 5 years, just because of the type of leather it is. However, that's always a drawback when buying leather band watches, so you just have to live with it. I wouldn't recommend exercising in it. I currently only wear it when I know I won't be doing too much, or when I'm dressing up, to extend its life. I totally DO NOT regret this purchase, and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone else considering it (male or female). Also, you can try and look around for a better price, but I saw prices either comparable or more expensive, so it is a really good buy. It doesn't seem to be a very easy watch to find, either. BUY IT -- you won't regret it.
I just bought two Stuhrling watches and am so pleased with both of them. They are beautiful, well-made and a great value for the $$. Both watches (this one and the Women's Alpine) have lovely details that set them apart from other watches of similar price. I would highly recommend this watch and any watches from Stuhrling. You can't go wrong!
I love this watch. I didn't think the strap did it justice though, and ordered a moc croc strap from a Miami store that makes the watch pop! It elevates it to a new level, and the strap was only $18.95. The strap that comes with the watch is nice leather and is soft, but I think a lighter or brighter tan, either real or moc croc, brings the watch up to a Franck Muller level look. With the manufacturer's strap - nice watch. With a croc - amazing looking watch. I recommend it to anyone.
Although this is a beautiful watch it is absolutely NOT suited for a woman's wrist. It was so large I had to return it. I ordered it because I do like larger watches but this is bigger than most men's watches I have seen. I am intrigued by the brand (Stuhrling) and would like to find one that is sized for a woman because the watch was very nice and came packaged beautifully. Overstock was very nice about the return process.
Love this watch. Wanted a Stuhrling and this one was soooo affordable. Size is not too big and the crystal makes the appearance truly unique - with a bronze face, the color is also very rich. Even the band is a soft leather, making it easy to wear with no stiffness whatsoever. Just love this watch. Very very happy with the purchase.
Received this as a gift and it is just gorgeous. The colors are warm and rich. I like large watches, but actually had to make another hole for the band, since my wrists are thin and this is a unisex style. Personally, I think it's too pretty for a man.
My watch just arrived 15 minutes ago. I love it! I really like large faces and many women's watches don't fit me. The bands are too small. When I saw the picture of this watch and read that the band was a bit large, I knew it was for me! I was just a bit concerned because the photo shows a brown leather band but the description said it had a black band. I contacted Overstock to see if I would get a brown or black band. (I wanted the brown one.) They said that sometimes the photos are wrong and that I should go by the written description. Well, I was a bit disappointed because I wanted the brown band. Decided to get the watch anyways... Opened the box and the band is brown... just like the photo. What a nice surprise! If you have a small to average size ladies wrist, however, then this watch might be too big for you. I need a larger band and like to wear my watches a bit loose. With this watch, I can go one notch smaller on the band. For me, the size of this watch is perfect.
This is an amazing watch. Very nice quality. It is listed as unisex and it was, however too big for me. I had read this in the reviews,but wasn't afraid of a little bigger watch. I gave it to my 17 year old son as a dress watch and he is thrilled.
This watch is my every day watch. It keeps perfect time and it is so elegant. I feel good wearing this watch. It is easy to set and this feature is important to me. I don't have to plod through directions to change the time. I feel 'rich' wearing this watch. The little calendar, that shows the date, comes in handy. This watch is easily worth much more that it costs on Overstock. I feel 'rich' wearing this watch. I highly recommend it.
This is my fifth stuhrling watch. They are all great quality. This is my first Swiss Quartz watch from them. All the others are automatic. I don't like messing with batteries. I do like this one. I really like the luminous hands and numbers. Easy to see at night! This will be my go to watch for weekends.
I do recommend this watch !!!! It is so gorgeously beautiful. It is not a small frame one.It is big but very feminine pretty with the pink display. And as for the case length : please hold a ruler looking at the first mark of centimeters to the number 3 mark, so, it is just about a little more than 1" long ; and about 1" wide and it is not too thick, really. It looks very distinct and chic ! A in my opinion, it isn't for men. Also, it isn't to go along with a long night gala gown, but it can go with just any other occasion dress like : a formal professional look (suit dress jacket, etc.) for the daily workday or for a sport or casual look along with that favorite shirt&jeans, it is just an anytime watch. Easy to read ( I wear contacts & glasses). Calendar is a plus. It was easy to set up and the leather band is soft but not cheap looking at all, very elegant. Sure, in time, with sweat and the wear & tear the band can always be replaced. Thanks Overstock for such a gift you "gave" to me, really... a Stuhrling Original for this price ?....I AM VERY HAPPY I'VE GOT IT.
What an incredible deal on such a high quality watch. Elegant and worth every penny...

I just love the look of this watch, very fancy (look just like the photo). The pinky-peachy background is refreshing to see when you check the time. The hands and numbers glow well in the dark. I enjoy that the face feels a bit big and a little chunky. I've gotten compliments!
