Summary: I already own a Stuhrling and like it so I decided to get another. This time I wanted a dressy watch that could be worn in more formal situations. The watch was nicely packaged and looked just as good as in the pictures. Having removed the packaging I attempted to set the time and date. The crown came off as soon as I attempted to rotate it. I was not impressed. I was able to screw it on but I wonder if it will stay. I like the watch but am tempted to return it.
Summary: Better looking than the pictures! It's a simple design that's understated and very "classy". The face details that don't show up in the website photos enhance that even further. And it's very EASY TO READ, which is important to me. Rather than writing a review right away, though, I waited to see how the watch held up with respect to accuracy. This is also important to me. I have an "atomic" watch which sets itself to the NIST atomic clock and several "atomic" clocks.
Summary: This is the 2nd watch that I've bought from Amazon and I'm not disappointed. The packaging is very nice. The watch itself looks good. The only thing that prevented me from giving it 5 stars is the crown. I don't know if the problem exist in this particular model or if it's a problem with this specific unit but sometimes when you adjust the date, it just doesn't move. Aside from that problem I'm happy with this purchase.
Summary: I decided to buy this watch originally because of it's color scheme. A black textured dial on a brown crocodile pattern leather will go with both black or brown shoes, which will make for a great everyday watch. Also, the size of the dial is very masculine and looks large on the wrist, which I love, however, the large circumference does not add weight to the watch as it is also very light on the wrist.
Summary: Bought this watch based on its pictures. It looks great on the pictures but somehow does not quite look it in the hand. It looks a bit cheap, but was a good gift for someone else, so I am basically satisfied. Will have to get a good looking watch elsewhere.
