First of all, I do own a Submariner which is somewhat too nice to wear on most occasions for the work I do, so then decided to buy an homage watch similar at 10x the price of this Stuhrling watch, and STILL had hesitancy wearing it for the money spent on it. I just happened upon this watch while browsing, and decided to give it a try. Well, it's WELL worth the price! From a distance, you wouldn't know it's an inexpensive homage watch, and most people up close are even fooled by it, though the second-hand "tick" is a dead giveaway it's just a quartz watch. The blue bezel and blue face are amazingly metallic-looking in sunlight. It's got an embossed crown and the crown is a screw-down. The lume is not great, but I was not expecting it to be great for the cost. The bezel numbers are printed, not etched like on an higher-priced watch. It has a one way rotation and the feel is surprisingly good, with just a small bit of "cheapness" in the sound (think Craftsman ratchet, instead of Facom!). It just looks great! It is classy! The quality seems good, and the watch is not too heavy on the wrist. I removed a couple of links easily at home from the bracelet to fit my wrist. Best part, if something bad happens to it, you won't get sick to your stomach at the price you paid for it! So, if you want an impressive watch, or like me, you don't want to wear your impressive watch and risk accidentally dropping this down the porta-pottie, who cares for the price you paid? - BUY IT!
I viewed over 500 watches online. This watch has ALL of the features I was looking for. I am very pleased, at this time, with my purchase.
Very comfortable, although a bit heavy for what I am used to. 44 mm and I got the bracelet sized for my 6.5 inch wrist; yes I am a male. I wear trifocals so the larger face makes it easy for me to read.
Love the colors and the watch. It didn't work when I got it... which seems far too typical for Stuhrling watches. I took it to my jeweler, he replaced the battery and it's fine. Done this with 4 other watches, and the ones that work? The batteries die after about 6 months. I've purchased over 30 watches from Stuhrling because I like their styles...but batteries are a problem. It's cheaper to replace the battery than to return the watch and get another bad battery.
This watch is a perfect gift for any age.. I was very surprised at the value and the discount given. On Christmas when I gave it to my military son he was very happy.. and loved it!! We both loved it!!!!
One never knows what to expect on a watch less than $100. This purchase exceeded my expectations. It is a wonderful watch, runs very accurately, and very easy to read. As I mentioned, the dial is larger than expected, but it was easy to get accustomed - I was looking for a watch that I can read as my eyes ar not what they used to be and this watch solved that problem. It came in nice packaging and I would recommend this watch to all. Stuhrling makes an interesting product - I was surprised by the quality and the features that were unexpected.
I picked up the watch today so it is too early to discuss the time keeping but the watch itself just looks absolutely magnificent! Attention to detail is second to none and I can not fault Stuhrling in the slightest. I have had the watch on for half a day and it is definately a conversation starter with several people making comments about how terrific it looks. The size of the watch is quite large so it may put some people off however I love my watch's like this. If you love big watch's, attention to detail and something that will stand you out from the crowd don't look no further than this!
Good independent reviews caused me to purchase this product. I had to get use to winding a watch again, but that's a big part of the appeal of this item. Lots of compliments. Thick! Heavy! Fun to etch the mechanism through the front dial or back case.
Nice unisex watch, it fits my 5 1/2 wrist. Comfortable, beautiful, sleek design. Similar to ******* & ******** design but at a value. I wear it with my slim silver bracelet and it looks amazing. Down side, the band won't stay in place, keeps slipping out of the metal bands.
Looks very elegant and expensive. The strap is self adjusted, watch is not "blingy" and depends on style can appear modern and classic at the same time. Box in which watch comes looks very, very expensive... great gift on budget!
I would have given this 5 stars because it is absolutely stunning however after my son who is in college wore it a couple of weeks, a piece inside came loose so now I will need to take it in to get it fixed.
With this day and age, it seems everyone is sporting a saucer plate with flashy stones attached to their wrist. I wanted to bring it back to the basics. I wanted a elegant watch that isn't screaming "Look what I have on my wrist!" Not to say people don't notice it. I've received many compliments. It is simple in design but isn't lacking. It is true to the design of being ultra slim. It works great with dress shirts by not getting caught up in the shirt's cuff. It looks slightly out place when not wearing a dress shirt. To me, this watch isn't trying to be flashy, but simple and classy. If you style is more along the lines of "James Bond" where the man wears the clothes and not visa versa; this watch is right up your alley.
