Great watch, maybe
 from Northern Nevada,  Jun 12, 2010

I ordered this watch. I already own a Stuhrling Winchester skeleton I am very happy with, from another retailer, even though it runs a little fast. It's a great looking watch, and so is this Othello. The Othello arrived, and it arrives already running because it's automatic. I noticed while setting the time, it stopped running. It's because a tiny blue screw came loose and was flopping around inside the watch. Also, and I have seen this complaint elsewhere, the faceplate is rotated by a degree or so, just enough to notice it. I sent the watch back to Overstock.com, the return process went well, as soon as I had printed their return shipping tag (free for defective product) and shipped it via UPS, they already sent me a replacement. That part was great. I did specify that I wanted a replacement with the face mounted correctly. The replacement they sent me is great in all respects -- except the face is rotated just enough to notice. I wonder if Overstock gets the Stuhrling Chinese-made watches that didn't come out quite right. Well, the watch still looks cool, keeps better time than my Winchester, and I'm happy overall because the price was about 30-50% less than other well-known retail website. I guess you get what you pay for. I heartily recommend Sturhling skeleton watches, even though they are large, they weight much less than other brands of skeleton watches, esp Relic.
