Very nicely made watch and strap with exhibition back at an amazing price! I collect fine watches and have a number of watches that cost thousands of dollars so I know what to expect in a fine watch. I can say that this watch measures up to any watch I've seen for hundreds more. I have no hesitation in recommending it. My only suggestion to Stuhrling would be to make the date indicator larger, there's certainly enough room in the watch to do so and it would be a lot easier on the eyes! I don't look at the date very often and the highly legible dial and hands are very easy to read. This watch is a steal at under a hundred bucks - and it has a 3 year warranty!
