A great feat of engineering and craftsmanship is required to create a skeleton watch, 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 Winchester 44. 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 44 is a third 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, appears to be floating! Blued hands were also included for easy at-a-glance reading. The Winchester 44 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 leather strap with crocodile embossing for a combination of comfort and style.
With dedication to the heritage of watchmaking, Stührling Original timepieces appeal to the most discriminating taste at reasonable prices. Through meticulous labor and rigorous testing, the vision of the Stührling Original timepiece is brought to life inside our workshops, where “Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.”
Assembling a Stührling Original mechanical automatic movement comprises no less than 30 checkpoints, spread throughout the assembly process. The movement must meet more than 7 criteria, including a mean variation in rate which is the highest standard in its class in the industry. Stührling Original remains committed to its mission of preserving high manufacturing standards on all of their fine timepieces. Each and every model conveys an inimitable story with extraordinary style.
