The Midtown Banker is the first Stuhrling Original timepiece to feature a rectangular case coupled with a pure mechanical movement. This classic timepiece measures an impressive 39mm in width and 56.5mm in height. The fully skeletonized dial leaves every part of the beautifully decorated movement exposed, while the time is indicated with skeletonized arrow-tipped hands and small seconds sub-dial. Equipped with a 26mm alligator embossed genuine leather strap, the Midtown Banker has a distinctly boardroom style that goes perfectly with your formal wear.
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.
The Metropolis Family is part of the Classic Collection, timepieces with a distinct urban and modern design. This family includes some of Stuhrling Original's boldest styles, each featuring a rectangular or square case with exquisite dial configurations and advanced automatic movements.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual Mechanical Movement
The hand-wound mechanical movement is perhaps the most classical of movements. It operates exclusively by the daily (or sometimes more often) winding of the crown to power the mainspring (the “heart” of the movement). Unlike its automatic mechanical counterpart, this type of movement does not feature a rotor. The energy source is the mainspring (a spring coiled into a tight spiral) which is wound manually by the wearer twisting the crown, usually in a clockwise direction. As time progresses, the spring begins to uncoil, releasing the energy needed to activate the various wheels and make the movement tick. Without routine winding of the crown, the hand-wound mechanical movement will eventually lose power. Thus, mechanical hand-wound movements usually require daily winding. A hand-wound movement requires greater care than almost all other types of movements because once the mainspring is fully wound, additional tension may cause it to break.
• Complications: Hours, Minutes, and Small Seconds
• Dial: Skeletonized Dial with Archway and Bridge Design
