    I just got this watch -- never even had a chance to wear it out of the house -- and it's already broken. I'm returning it now. A word of warning about Stuhrling watches in general: all of them come with a card that says if you give them a positive review on Amazon, they'll extend the manufacturer's warranty. To me, that seems pretty fishy. If you see positive reviews on Amazon, you can ask yourself: did that person really think the watch was good? Or was the watch shoddy and they needed to extend the warranty?

    Also, the joints where the watchband met the watch were amazingly squeaky.

    The watch did look pretty nice -- just like in the picture.

    Eyes opened wide upon seeing how extensive the packaging of this watch was. It felt like opening a really expensive Swiss chocolate box.

    Likes: I like the color combination of black and orange. I like the orange stitching on the really nice and thick leather band. It's a simple watch design perfect for use with casual, semi and formal wear.

    I like the big size. I guess the XL stands for extra large because the diameter is large indeed.

    The numbers and lines are orange and somewhat frost in texture.

    Dislike: I have only one so far and that's the face where the numbers and lines are printed on. It looks like plain colored paper. They should have used a more textured material which I'm sure will make the prints embossed and raised more giving it a much more expensive look.

    I decided on getting an automatic watch to make it a sort of family heirloom which I will hand down to my son when he reaches his adulthood.

    Despite reading some negative reviews on its performance and longevity I am willing to give it a try.

    If there are any abnormalities in its operation I will update this review.

    Thank you.

    Made in unknown.

    Update:12/14/2011

    Sad to say I decided to return this watch. I did not get over the flat/bland face dial. This is what killed the watch presentation. I also experienced a couple of people's complaint about the squeaky hinge where the band is attached to and the seconds hand that does seem to run fast then slow then faster then slower but I think it's due to the strain of staring. It did keep time "on time" it was never late nor advanced.

    I was a bit hesitant to purchase this after reading the reviews, but I decided to take a chance for the price (sub-$100).

    I've been using it daily for the last 2 weeks, and here is what I've found:

    - The watchface is a LOT bigger than it looks in the ad - I have skinny wrists, so I've never been a fan of that "Invicta" look - you may want to look elsewhere if you're like me.

    - Accuracy - it's ok - it seems to have gained 1 minute after 2 weeks of daily use. I don't consider this a "bad" thing, as the watch is under $100 - but, I get better accuracy from my Orient and Seiko watches

    All in all, it's actually not bad for the price...

    To those complaining about the leather band "squeeking" - This was easily taken care of by applying leather break in fluid - the kind you use for new baseball mits - I've done this to several of my watchbands, as it helps to break them in.

    My only reasons for the 3 stars and not 5 is mainly to do with the watch size and accuracy.

    I bought this watch fooled by the attractive looks, large dial and all the Swiss heritage claims. When I received it I was really happy, but as time passed its many flaws were becoming apparent and I realized my mistake in having bought this watch.

    The Chinese movement is cheap and unreliable. The luminescence is practically useless and can't be seen an hour after you turn off the light. The strap was too rigid and exuded a foul smell that lasted for months. The minute hand detached barely a year after purchase. Now it's resting in a drawer because I think it's not worth fixing.

    My humble advice if you are looking for an affordable automatic watch would be to go for a Japanese model.
    I have a Seiko Monster and it's an amazing watch, reliable and well built. I've also had the chance to try my nephew's Orient Mako which is neat looking. Both use Japanese movements.

    I hope my review helps others to not waste their money the same way I did.

    This is my second SO product. The cost here was low and I guess you get what you pay for here. My first one was nicer but this is a drop down in quality with sharp edges and a cheap bracelet. Gave it away as I never chose to wear it due to other options all being better. I am done with this brand after this one.

    First and foremost, it's important to understand that brands like Stuhrling and Invicta are frequently dismissed out of hand by watch enthusiasts -- and often this is the result of "creative" marketing on the part of budget-friendly brands.

    No matter what kind of flowery story you might read about Stuhrling, the watch and its movement have about as much to do with Switzerland as a steaming plate of General Tso's Chicken. That doesn't make it a bad watch, however.

    The Tuskegee Warhawk is one big watch. My guess is that it's to further align itself with the near-iconic look of Bell & Ross watches, but in any case, my wrist is 9.5" / 24mm (so the second from last hole in the band is as tight as I can wear it) and the face is pretty massive on my wrist.

    The band is surprisingly stiff, though the stitching and overall quality is pretty good. If you can stand breaking it in over a few days, you're set. If you have a little leather conditioner around, that wouldn't hurt.

    The watch itself has kind of a cheap plastic feel to it, but at the same time, it's kind of heavy. Nobody's going to confuse it with a luxury timepiece, but at the same time, it doesn't look like it came from Target. At a glance, I couldn't identify the movement. From the face, the second hand ticks almost like a knockoff Miyota. It's easy to read, although the hands look kind of cheap.

    Overall, it keeps time reasonably well and would make a nice starter piece for someone interested in collecting automatics -- or for someone who already has a collection and wants an everyday beater.
