I purchased this watch as gift to myself because i wanted a quality automatic watch.. Im very impressed so far. The watch came in a couple of days very beautifully packaged.. It was bigger than the picture indicated, but after a few days it began to grow on me..I took me a few minutes to figure out how to use the watchband being there was"nt anything in instructions on how to put the watch on..I have recieved numerous compliments so far and the watch is keeping excellent time. Im very please with my purchase and i seriously considering buying another Stuhrling watch..I had never heard of this company before, but as far as my im concerned they make well constructed quality watches.i would say to anyone thinking of buying this watch..DO IT!!
