Great looking watch but it is NOT automatic
on December 20, 2012
I loved this watch the first two days I wore it. However it kept dying and I kept having to wind it up every 8 hours. I finally called Stuhrling. I found out that there is a big difference between "mechanical" and "automatic". Perhaps I am the only one that didn't notice the difference. This mechanical watch needs wound every morning 30 times which might give it 24-30 hours of life. I decided that as much as I liked the watch I did not want to wind it every morning....how often would I forget? I decided t return the watch to Amazon.
I exchanged the watch for the model 393.33152 . It looks very similar and is automatic...however, it is twice as thick and sits about an inch off your wrist. Had I known this I probably would have kept the original winding watch.
From what I can tell these watches are made very well, are very interesting, and look cool, BUT they need to make a self winding watch that is a much narrower.
