Very happy so far,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 144C2.33F569 "Classic Gatsby" Stainless Steel Automatic Watch with Leather Band (Watch)
After reading reviews on other Stuhrling watches and getting some background info on the company I was skeptical about buying this watch. The "list price" shown on any of their watches is just a marketing gimmick and their watches are made in China under Swiss supervision... two red flags, but I loved the look of the watch so I decided to try it out. When I received it the first thing that jumped out at me was the size/quality of the box, this thing is huge. The watch itself is larger then I expected, however it still looks good on my relatively small wrists. The picture surprisingly doesn't do the watch justice, it is much more beautiful in person. I've only had it a week but it has been accurate so far and I've received multiple compliments on it so far. The only complaint I had was really my fault, I didn't wind the watch very much one morning before work and I wasn't overly active that day, so it died on me about 4 hours into my shift, which I didn't notice until an hour had gone by and I thought I was being overly efficient, however I was really just an hour behind. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone, just be aware that it is definitely larger then it appears in the picture.

Sounds to me like the automatic winding simply isn't very good, it shouldn't take much movement at all for it to do its job. Thanks for the review, I've had this watch in my cart for a few weeks now and if yours has lasted a week, then it has lasted twice as long as my previous, and returned, Ken Cole watch. Maybe it's the Swiss supervision? Worth a try.
