Does not keep time,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 171B.3315K77 "Classic Cuvette" Stainless Steel and Leather Automatic Watch (Watch)
When this watch arrived I was very excited, it looked great and got A LOT of compliments. Then I noticed after about a week it would just stop ticking. I would go to sleep and wake up to a dead watch, I would give it a shake and it would start up again. Then later in the dead I would realize its about 4 hours off. I sent it back to Stuhrling to get repaired. It came back with the glass completely not centered, (the little bubble that's suppose to be over the date was way off) and to top it off it still didn't work.
If you want a watch that doesn't work but looks great than this is it, otherwise I'd stay away from anything from Stuhrling.

You do know that you need to wind the watch or put it on an automatic watch winder right... Even hundreds of thousand of dollar automatic watches have 3-4 day wind energy reserves... I suggest you learn more about automatic watches. Hence "when you give it a shake it would start up again".

They acknowledged it was broken, and even returned it with the glass completely crooked. Thanks for the life tip weenie.

Mr NAVboston. The point Mr Spartn was rather cheekily trying to make is that your original review suggests that you were happily unaware that this watch is an automatic watch, which is to say that it is basically a mechanical watch with a device built in which winds the watch as you move your watch hand. If you do not wear the watch for about two days it will wind down and stop. If you shake the watch when it has stopped it will work for a short while. What the repairers made of your complaint is hard to say, but it seems they made an attempt to 'repair' it and reassembled it incorrectly.
