Let me start by saying that I have a small, yet decent watch collection of 6 pieces currently. I have been hunting this cuvette down for sometime, and when I finally received the piece, I was very excited. It is a classy casual watch with a slightly-wider band than another Stuhrling that I own. The face is well-proportioned and the milling, as always with Stuhrlings, is exceptional. The skeleton back is a nice little feature and the winder is noticeable unintrusive on the back of the hand when flexing the wrist backwards. It really is a nice piece and I commonly wear it with jeans and Khakis, though not as appropriate in the office/suit environment. However, this watch is not for the average watch person - unless you plan to make it your only watch - due to the watch's only real flaw .... the power reserve. If you take this watch off and leave it for 2 days, she goes to sleep. When the watch is motioned it comes right back to life, but it is clear that this watch must be on a watch oscillator when not being worn. Otherwise, you have to wear it every other day. For many people, this is no problem, but I am trying to keep all of my watches in rotation so it can be an issue from time to time. I had planned on sending the piece back when I realized the lighter power reserve of about 30-36 hours, but it is such a good looker that I decided to keep it on. Purchase it, wear it, and enjoy!
