Well, ...I was anxious to received this Stuhrling Watch and when it arrived I got real excited, mainly because I never owned a mechanical watch before. When I opened the box, I was stunned by it's beauty, truly no picture can capture the beauty of this watch, you have to see in person to believe it! The wavy sun dial is mesmerizing! you seem to get lost in time simply looking at it yet the iridescent blue hands promptly remind you of the time and suddenly one of these come across your face!:-) The back of the case is semi-skeletal with a swinging pendulum, it¿s soooo cooool! ¿you get a real sense of quality with this watch. However, I have to tell you though, the feel of this watch is another dimension all of it¿s own. Do you now see why a picture is unable to capture this? And! ¿it all adds-up to the making of an heirloom, now that¿s really cool!¿I¿m sure to pass it on, even if it ever stops running, it will always remain timeless!
