A great feat of engineering and craftsmanship is required to create a skeleton watch, which are timepieces with part of the dial removed to reveal the movement underneath. It takes even greater skill to remove the dial completely, and that’s what Stuhrling Original did with the Stuhrling Original Men's Lifestyles Winchester Grand Automatic Skeleton Watch. This magnificent watch has been in a staple in our collection, and our fans will all tell you the same thing: they love it. The Winchester Grand is a second take at the original Winchester Skeleton. Rather than keeping the 40mm case of its predecessor, the Grand has been upgraded to an impressive 44mm case design. As mentioned earlier, we’ve eschewed the dial completely and included a stainless steel faceplate instead. It consists of a ring that suspends the 12, 3, 6, and 9 Arabic numerals while the bridges that function as the hour markers are attached to the case. The result: the movement, decorated by intricate hand-engraved scrollwork and colored to match the execution, appears to be floating. Blued hands were also included for easy at-a-glance reading. The Winchester Grand is protected by a domed Krysterna crystal at the face and a flat crystal on the exhibition case back. It comes mounted in a genuine French leather strap with crocodile embossing for a combination of comfort and style.
The Winchester Family is part of the Classic Collection, timepieces inspired by the classic era of watchmaking. Members of this family feature skeletonized dials that boldly display the mechanical and automatic movements.
Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Automatic Movement
Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.
Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).
