Very good looking, very poor craftsmanship
on December 8, 2008
As many reviews state, this is a good looking watch. I ordered it based on the large number of positive reviews and the looks. When I received the watch, it worked for about 5 minutes until the hands came loose inside the dial and begun to flop around in the watch. I would not expect this to happen on a $15 watch, not to mention a watch that claims a list price of $700+. Amazon accepted the return, no problem.
Before I re-ordered, I started to look closely at the reviewers (and reviewers of other Stuhrling products) and noticed the poor reviews are generally written by people with lots of reviews and the watch had quality issues, while those who loved it only reviewed this product. I think I agree with another reviewer of a Stuhrling watch that the manufacture may be padding their reviews. I decided not to order this watch again and decided to go with Seiko brand. I usually don't write reviews, but I think the ones you are reading may not be true... buyer beware.
