Stuhrling apocalypse skeleton
18 January 2012
Summary: A very inpressive looking watch..I bought it and wore it all day and it kept perfect time. I took it off that night and the next morning i noticed it wasn't running so i wound the watch a few times still didn't run. So i will be returning the watch. I am so Disapointed in it.
Summary: My Stuhrling watch lasted 6 weeks and was worn 5 times before the minute hand fell off - watch was not bumped or dropped. I contacted Stuhrling's repair and was told that I had to ship it back at my own expense and they would "kindly waive" the normal $20 handling/return fee since the watch was nearly new, with no guarantee as to how fast the turnaround would be. No mention of the $20 fee under their warrantee info on Amazon.
Summary: Bought as a gift for the boyfriend, he seems to really like it. It looks really cool, and isn't too big on his wrist. Saw no brown film as the other reviews mentioned (I was pretty worried about that). However, one must remember that this has no backlight, which is a tad bit annoying.
Summary: I just receive mine rose tone Apocalpse. I like the watch so far... but just like other reviews, mine had a brown film over the movement. I can not see the movement clearly!!! Is that happening with everyone? Please comment here. I wonder if this is just a defect and that the manufacture forgot to remove the film or its suppose to be like this? But looking at the pic from their website... the movement should be clear. Overall this watch is nice looking.
Summary: It wasn't anything near what I had in mind. No glow-in-the dark hands, needs daily use otherwise it stops and requires setting the time again, no date nor day of the week, no other feature. Very basic watch, somewhat clumsy and big, hard to determine the exact time.
Summary: Just like another reviewer, I noticed that this watch did not have a black interior like the displayed Amazon picture, instead, it had ugly brownish gears. The strap is good quality and easily adjusted but the overall quality of the watch is poor as the winding crown was broken on arrival. The automatic movement seemed to work fine but I only have about two days of experience with that. I'm also wondering about the origins of the watch...
Summary: very nice looking, and no problems with it. The rubber strap is a little thinner then i thought it would be, but that is my taste...very subjective because i like big watches. This watch has nice detail and a very nice, classy addition to my collection.
Summary: I've been eyeing this watch for 6 months, finally bought it a couple of weeks back and i gotta say i'm impressed with the detail and how gorgeus the watch is, even the box it came in is gorgeus, a friend also bought the rose tone editions of this watch the only thing i can say is you have to see it to believe it, really really happy with the purchase.
Summary: The watch I received did not look like the picture. Most of the inside appeared brown and foggy (not black). The "skeleton" was so foggy that you could barely see the inner workings of the watch. This purchase was a major disappointment, even for $165. I would not recommend purchasing this watch unless you have seen it in person first. I sent it back and I'm waiting for my refund.
