Great watch at a fair price ($54.00),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 122.33111 Classic Ascot Somerset Elite Swiss Quartz Ultra Slim Black Dial Mesh Bracelet Watch (Watch)
The watch is beautiful. Stainless steel mesh band, black dial, and synthetic sapphire crystal (just as hard as the real thing, cheaper to produce). The mesh band is so tightly knit that I actually don't have an issue with it pulling my wrist hair out like I thought I would. Once I received the watch, I took the watch to a jewelers to have it fitted. They were very intrigued because the mesh band is in a way unique, and there aren't too many of its kind. The box the watch comes in is very well decorated.
It's been day number two and I'm very happy with the quality. I've had a few people make comments about how the watch looks, which is great. So far the watch has kept time beautifully. My one thing that bothers me (most likely my OCD) is that the back of the watch that holds all the guts in is rotated about three degrees off. This doesn't change my rating however, as that's something that wouldn't be noticed by many people, as the watch will always be on my wrist ;)
I really like how slim the watch is, I think that's another key point to me. Beautifully engineered. The watch slides under my sleeve just fine without being too bulky.
I tried doing some research into the background of the manufacturer and really couldn't find too much information. From what I could find, it sounds like Stuhrling is a German name, with Swiss movements, however it's assembled in either China or Asia. So even with a list price of 395.00, it's more likely worth the sale price, possibly even up to 120.00ish. All in all, very happy with the watch.
