Great watch Cheap band,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 1077.3345K2 Classic Delphi Venezia Stainless Steel Watch with Leather Band (Watch)
This watch looks great and dresses up well. It is big enough to look substantial, but not so big that it overwhelms your wrist. It isn't heavy compared to my other 44mm 45mm watches. It keeps great time and and the movement sets easily. I have had this watch for a year. I wear it about once a week and wind it from stopped each time. I've had no problems.
Now for the bad. The band is made from very cheap thin leather, it scratches easily and it is obviously not alligator. after wearing it about 50 times the bottom of the strap looks like suede. I think I'm going to replace it with a slightly darker solid leather band.
A quick word about Stuhrling. These watches are made in China not Switzerland. The owner of the company has loose ties to Switzerland so they call the company Swiss owned. The watch will show up with made in china stickers. I have bought two Stuhrling watches and I also own a few Swiss ETA movements. Stuhrling watches has given me zero problems, and honestly I never feel a slip in the movement when I turn the crown I can't say the same about my ETA watches. So far my Chinese automatics have kept good time.
