Replaced my Rolex,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 4AT.332534 Champion Alpine Automatic Skeleton Rose Tone Watch (Watch)
Let me start off by saying that before purchasing this timepiece, I had a Rolex Submariner which I loved but I ended up giving it to my father as a gift. I wanted a timepiece that was great build quality and had a reliable movement like I was used to but didn't want to pay a lot of money (the Rolex had been a gift from my company). After some research, I stumbled upon the Stuhrling brand.
Despite mixed reviews on the web, I took a gamble and bought the Stuhrling Alpine. I DO NOT REGRET MY DECISION!!
The build quality is amazing and the weight is perfect. The leather band was broken in quickly and the watch is very comfortable to wear. This watch feels just as expensive as my Rolex did which really surprised me (in a good way).
I get more compliments than with the Rolex thanks to the unique way the skeleton design is done.
The automatic movement is fantastic. Some people gave negative reviews online because the watch slowed down after a few weeks or a month. If this is your first automatic watch, please remember that every now and then, you need to "wind" the watch to build up the energy reserve. Being mindful of this will prevent problems regardless of the brand you're wearing.
Again this is a fantastic timepiece. To have such high quality build with a fantastic automatic movement at such a low price is amazing.
