This is my first expensive timepiece as well as my first Stuhrling, and it definitely wont be my last. Very impressive detailing ie. showcase see through caseback, pearl color face, automatic, easy to read numbers, packaging. I decided the leather strap wasn't for me so i bought a Hadley-Roma solid link metal band ($44.00) size 20mm with a curved fitting. Looks even better with a metal band, as well as more durable for everyday use. Overall you cant beat this timepice for the price.
