Summary: I've had this watch for about five months and for the price it's a very good watch. I think it's a very good looking watch, however it was a bit big for me but you get use to the size. Also it did run 30 seconds fast each day. (Which is why i'm giving it only four stars)But all in all this was a great buy for the price.
Summary: I just received this watch today. the dial is more gray/platinum than in the photos, which pleasantly surprised me. I have a couple of other Stuhrling Watches, all on the large size, which is the new style. It is by far one of the most comfortable watches for my smaller than average wrist. At $99.99 the price can't be beat ! It's great !
Summary: Bought this watch and it arrived looking beautiful. Unfortunately, after three days and being worn twice the minute hand fell off it's hinge. I called Stuhrling customer service, left a message but could never get through and they never returned my calls. THANKFULLY Amazon gave me a full refund, but please do yourself a favor and don't buy this brand. For $200 there's a lot of great watches out there that aren't quite so flimsy.
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: This is a great watch. What makes it great is all the attention to detail. From the lowered pavilion for the sweep second hand, to the case shape being comfortable on the wrist, all the bases have been covered. Even the magnifier on the date is well shaped: usefully sized, but without showing half of the dial at the same size. The only caution I would put out there is that is a big watch. With a 44mm face, this watch is made for people with big wrists.
Great quality all-around, but bigger than I expected

Summary: All I wanted was a simple, elegant automatic watch, and I thought I found it when I came across this watch. Boy, was I disappointed when I got the actual watch in the mail. This thing is one of those humongous-faced watches that are gaining influence these days, and, unfortunately, makes my wrist look like a 5 year old child's when I wear it. Of course, I have to give credit where credit is due. Stuhrling has made a quality watch.
Summary: Pro: The dial looks good and has a good finish. Good quality leather strap Transparent back cover Cons: 1. The capacitor does not hold the charge overnight. Returned the watch. 2. The dial is really darker than it appears on the picture 3.
