I was actually waiting on the watch counting days for it to arrive - I liked the photo on Amazon so much that wanted bad to wear it. You may be totally fine without having high expectations like I did, but as for me - I'm disappointed.
I will start with PROs: it keeps time fine, it is made well. There is an extra black strap in the box with extra pins. Pins are great, they have special tabs to press so straps can be changed with no tools, takes 1 min.
However, for me there are two serious cons so I'm thinking about sending the watch back. First issue: the face is black but it is not true black like on the Amazon's picture. I've posted a picture of my cheap Invicta Russian diver (paid less for it actually). The black face is much darker and it makes time easy to read. Second issue for me: the crystal (glass) is not flat. I guess it is more expensive to make the crystal domed on top but I see two problems. 1. The crystal sticks out about 1/8" from the case on its center so it is much easier to scratch it. 2. Combined with the face that it is not true black, it adds A LOT of reflections with the lights on in my office (they say that doomed crystal shouldn't have any!) and adds distortion. So, every time I check the watch I find myself wanting to grab a napkin and clean it even if it is totally clean.
Don't get me wrong, it is a good watch. 3 stars I mark it - "It is OK", not "I love it" and not "I like it". If you are not picky it will work fine for you. But the Amazon's photo and the original look too different for my test.

Got this as a Black Friday special for $59. For that price it's a very nice watch. The pictures are accurate, the bands are excellent quality and the packaging is wonderful (so it would be a great gift). The watch is a little on the large side (diameter wise) which makes it very readable. It's also fairly quiet. You have to put it right up to your ear to hear it. According to the manual you can take it swimming (but that wouldn't be a very good idea with a leather band). Another great thing is that the bands have a little catch in the back so they can be switched out easily, without tools. A black band makes this look a bit elegant. The camel band makes it look more unique. And I think a red, green or blue band could make it look pretty cool, too.

We'll see how well it holds up, but from my first impression, I'm very pleased. As for the rest, time will tell (pun intended).

UPDATE: After owning this watch for a year, I had to return it to the factory for repair. They charged $20 for return shipping. Considering it costs $5 to ship and I wouldn't have had to ship it if their watch hadn't had broken that seemed unfair. Nonetheless, they fixed it and it's OK now. The crystal did crack in a corner. I probably banged into a wall too hard. Or it could be that their crystal isn't as durable as it should be. Other than that, everything above still stands except that I agree with another reviewer when he said that the crystal reflects oddly and sometimes makes the numbers a bit hard to read.

This watch looks great. It has a very simple design that is both elegant and masculine. At first glance you wouldn't think that this would be the type of watch to garner attention and stand out to people, but this is my first day wearing it and I already have rec'd 6 compliments.

The leather bands are very high quality and are extremely easy to switch in and out.

Overall I am very happy with this purchase and even more so since I got it as a lightning deal!

Thanks, Amazon.

EDIT: Now that I have had the watch for a little more than a week I'll add more. The tan band is already showing some wear, though it shouldn't this early on. I haven't had any issues with reflections and not being able to read the face, but I have noticed that the fluorescent on the numbers and hand are not very strong and require an LED flash light to charge them up bright enough; they are very dim in the dark.

All in all it is still a nice looking watch and I get plenty of compliments. Comes with a Stuhrling Warranty and I think the bands are covered.

I would still recommend for someone looking for a nice watch on a budget.

Have a thing for quality watches at a great price. Keeps accurate time and light to wear. Love the idea of changing out bands. Black band gives a more formal look.

This a beautiful watch for the price and there is quite an attention to detail right down to the box it comes in. It has a basic and classic face, which i feel gives it more of a dressy appearance rather than casual. The extra tan leather band is an added bonus.

My boyfriend loves this watch. He has relatively small wrists and this watch fit him without having to add extra notches and the face is just the right size. At times it can lose a few minutes, so make sure to reset it every once in a while.

Simple great watch. The watch strap wears in and gives it an older look. For the price and look you can't go wrong. My friend liked it so much he bought it as well.

I bought a stuhrling before and it is a really good watch. Thats why i bought this one but this one is really disappointing. Used it for a day and doesn't keep the time at all. When you dial it it makes a crack. I know i must have a defective one, but its disappointing. My other stuhrling watch is flawless.
