Summary: The Stuhrling 142A.EU.PK6 pocket watch is a disappointment. Loses an incredible 10 mins per day. What I thought was a bargain is now trash. On closer inspection of the quartz mechanism I not surprised that it loses time, not exactly precision workmanship here.
Summary: I bought this as I am a collector and user of Pocket watches. While this photo looks great, it is very hard to read the day and date on this watch once you wear it. The back stand is not aligned cleanly in the back resulting in a not flush fitting. Lastly, the reason we buy pocket watches is to keep time. This watch lost time almost from the first day. At first I thought I may have not reset the stem.
Summary: As another reviewer has commented, Stuhrling must have quality control problems. They also must heave deaf ears when it comes honoring their guarantee responsibilities. The first one of these I received was uselessly slow and not what I'd expect for a digital watch. Maybe it was engineered to tell the time on a different Moon. I returned it (expensive from Australia) and eventually received an even slower replacement.
Summary: Out of the box I thought I got a keeper and was proud to carry it but after only a few days things started to happen that caused me some concern. First, I didn't like the chain because I thought it was cheaply made and the end result it catches on the lip of my watch pocket. The stand on the backside was not flush so that tells me the tooling isn't perfect as Swiss watches are known so the impression was this was built on an assembly line.
Summary: I was really impressed with my first purchase of Stuhrling Original Men's 142A.EU.PK6 Lifestyle Collection Monarch Moon Quartz Pocket Watch. I got the one with yellowish face. I bought it in September 2010. It kept perfect time and for its price, a steal! So, I bought another one of this Chinese-made watch for my pocket watch collection. The 2nd one I got was exactly the same model as above, except the 2nd one has a blue face.
Summary: I'm a big fan of pocket watches. I've had one all my life. My most recent purchase was a Tommy Bahama watch which died after 12 months. After reading all kinds of reviews, I decided the best value in the marketplace is this Stuhrling. This is an awesome watch. What a beautiful design! It's keeping time to the second! I love this watch.
Summary: This watch has a nice weighty feel to it and I am very pleased with the moon phase function, it matches the phases of the moon very accurately. The day and the date are also nifty functions to have. Right now my only concern is the watch is running a little slow, which may be a result of this particular watch. I am sending it in to see what the problem is, and I will update this review.
