My wife bought this "premium" timepiece for my Christmas gift with the understanding that it was "Swiss" and had a premium-grade designation. When it quit working 2 months after that, we attempted to return it through an authorized reseller as per the instructions in the warranty. We were informed that the only authorized reseller in the state did not in fact do any returns and that they had no idea how I should proceed. Upon further inspection, I found that nowhere in the description does the company indicate the country of origin for this timepiece. It states in a very misleading fashion that the watch is made to Swiss "standards" and under Swiss "supervision". Furthermore, the warranty does not cover the crystal even when it appears to have been damaged prior to my receiving the watch. For $20 shipping charge, they will inform you that they will repair the watch for more than the original cost of this "precision" timepiece. After spending many thousands of dollars with Amazon, this is easily the WORST experience I have ever had.

Arrived defective out of the box. Little hour markers inside the case have fallen off and were fluttering around inside the case. $5 watches in the mall have better quality. Clearly a fake MSRP, fake "sale", fake swiss quality. Shame on Amazon for letting this junk be sold and misrepresented on their site.

After the watch did not keep time correctly (as described below), I sent the watch back to Sturhling under warranty with the $20 required. They returned the watch within a couple of weeks - but it still does not keep reasonable time. My first day wearing the watch, it lost 3 minutes within the first 4 hours. I made sure it was fully wound, and it lost 5 minutes within the next 6 hours. From my experience with Stuhrling, the watches look and feel great . . . but unfortunately are not reliable enough to keep time accurately.

Three months ago, I bought this watch (but the model with the black face).
What I like: Sturhling makes attractive watches for a reasonable price. I received several compliments on the watch and when I do searches for watches, I find myself drawn to the Sturhling styling - they seem to have some of the most creative designs. Their packaging is attractive.
What I do not like: As others have noted on reviews of Sturhling watches, the watch kept OK time for a couple of months (not great - within a few minutes each couple of days). The self-winding mechanism is not enough to keep this watch wound. I would wear the watch for 15 hours each day and the watch would completely wind down. To stay running, it must be wound manually each day (minor inconvenience). Recently, the watch has been keeping erratic time - I have seen it lose as much as 10 minutes within a couple of hours. Sometimes it will gain 3 minutes within a couple of hours. I need the watch to keep time during meetings - I have to reset the watch prior to every meeting to make sure I'm close. As mentioned, to get the watch serviced under warranty, Sturhling requires you to pay shipping +$20. I have not done this option yet as this is ~20% of the purchase price - and I'm not sure about the results I will get as the time discrepancies are not consistent.
As a point of reference, I have owned mechanical watches (wind-up, not self-winding) that have kept time within a couple of minutes over a week, so I know it is possible to create watches with consistent performance at a reasonable price.

I picked this up on Black Friday, and have been wearing it ever since. Its a skeleton, so you can see all the mechanics of it. The hands are anodized blue, which really makes them pop out. The leather strap is soft and very elegant. Not much to say, its still ticking, even the couple licks Ive given it. Swung my arm against the tile counter the other day, and nothing. I have another couple brands to compare this too, but it wouldnt be right. The size is a normal size, not the huge things being made now days that take up your whole arm. It goes well with a suit, and goes well with a t-shirt. If you dont move a lot during the day, the winder is there. Weight is fine for a typical guy, nothing that anyone will get upset over. For a mechanical watch (no battery) its a great price for it. I own a couple other mechanicals, and they are all elegant, but this one beats them all with the price.

After a few months of use the time starts going off for a few minutes. It's gotten to the point that I wind it 10 minutes faster and let it slowly go back down to the actual time (though it's pretty bad since I never really know what the time is).

I use it daily mainly because it's a nice watch, big display. But the time is simply not not accurate

I bought this watch as a birthday gift for my husband. It has maybe been worn 10-15 times. This was purchased as a nice watch to wear out. He works a dirty job so he doesn't get to dress up much. Anyway after about 6 months the hands just fell off and are just laying inside the glass. There is no sign of wear or tear not even a scratch. It just fell off while being worn. It has been kept in a jewelry box. I really expected better quality and longer life for this price. I am very unsatisfied.

I've had this watch for a month now and it looks amazing. The only issue I had was the movement in the back of the watch became detached when its screw fell out. My local jeweler was able to fix this for me and put the movement back on, but it was a big inconvenience for a watch I paid good money on.

I'd like to start by explaining that this watch is just like I thought it would be; good size, good materials and craftsmanship, etc. Don't listen to these reviews about how it was defective out of the case or how it broke after two weeks- you're not supposed to treat a watch like this like an every day watch. You've got to take care of it like you would any other expensive electronic. And for the 75% price reduction, no one could truly know why this is, but for the time I've had it so far, I have not come into any defects or problems with the craftsmanship. The deal is incredible and the watch is just as incredible. If you're looking for an automatic skeleton watch, you've found it. And this watch comes in many other Bezel and strap options that are right around the same price.- 5 starts

This is my second Stuhrling watch. My first watch was a gift from my wife. I like it so much I decided to purchase a second one. This one I wanted to have a leather band. When I received the watch it came in its custom Stuhrling box w/ wipe cloth and booklet. The quality of the watch is GREAT! It's exactly what I expected. The face is a bit larger that my other watches but nothing close to those large over the top watch faces you see in those "knock off" stores. I'm 5-7 and slim and it looks great on my arm. Real leather band and quality material throughout.

I bought one Stuhrling watch and paid good money for it. Never again. That thing neverf kept accurate time and was off most months by twenty minutes. It sits in a drawer until I can find time to get it to a jeweler. I'd neverf trust the manufacturer who couldn't get it right the first time to fix it. THERE IS A REASON WHY THIS WATCH IS REDUCED SO MUCH. A fool and his money... I seriously hope to see the company go belly up.
