Stuhrling Original Tuskegee Warhawk Automatic
on November 30, 2011
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.
Made in unknown.
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.
