It Has It's Own Gravitational Field
on September 28, 2011
The Stuhrling Classic Delphi Omega Rose Gold Watch is very attractively designed. The skeleton watch features cut-aways that allow you or admirers to see the workings inside the watch. The back also features a glass face to see through the timepiece. The display is very-easily readable -- in part, because the thing is enormous! It looks big in the product photos, but they don't do justice...
This thing is big. I mean, really big. It looks like something proportioned for Sean Bradley or Andre the Giant. It's so big, it Has It's Own Gravitational Field! Have you seen the Irish Springs soap commercial? Imagine the guy saying, "Look at your watch. Now, look at mine. Again, look at yours, now at mine. Your watch looks like a microscopic miniature next to my Sturhling..." The diameter of the watch is a full 1 and 3/4 inches across its equator, about 150% the size a man might be accustomed to wearing on a wrist. No need for exercise weights when you have a Sturling on one wrist. Don't even need to shift the weight, merely compensating for the unequal distribution will give you the desired workout.
But don't let the size discourage you. I thought, it actually works for the proportions of a pocket watch. I mounted mine on a belt fob, and it displays handsomely that way. Several people have commented on it's intricate design. If I manage to upload a customer photo, you'll be able to see that it makes a nice setting. It really is a cool watch.
