This review is from: Stuhrling Original Men's 127A.3315C2 "Special Reserve Emperor's Grandeur" Stainless Steel and Blue Leather Strap Automatic Skeleton Watch (Watch)
This is an amazing watch, simply beautiful and worth every penny. This watch was a replacement to a Citizen Eco-Drive watch that had broken (band broke & I was using this as an excuse to update it after a decade) and move back to a kinetic watch. After much hemming and hawing I decided that this watch was the only one I could purchase and be satisfied.

I am.

This is a large watch. I cannot express this enough, it is a beast, to get an idea of its size, take a modest sized pocket watch and put it on your wrist; this will give you an idea of the size of the watch on you. It will take up your wrist, and that is alright, this is a piece to grab attention and turn heads.

This is a mechanical watch. Like all mechanical watches, automatic or manual wind, the precision will be affected by your environment such as temperature, pressure, altitude & humidity. Yes it has a “water resistance” rating, but this is regulated by rubber seals and is by no means going to stop humidity from affecting the gears. Yes it will lose or gain time, and this will not be a constant, but this is what you face when getting a mechanical watch, if you want something that is always right instead look toward a Citizen Men's CB0013-04A World Perpetual A-T Watch or a quartz watch, a mechanical watch will never match an atomic aligned watch, but again, why buy a watch without any hash marks that is mechanical if you are not willing to reset it from time to time, I did not buy this watch to be perfectly accurate, but to be a work of art on my wrist.

The presentation of the watch upon arrival was exquisite, though it was in a plastic & faux case, it was solid and offered a warm reception in the home, all of the kids wanting their time to ogle it.

If there is anything that I would think to complain about is that it is a very heavy watch, not so much that it bothers me, but it is something that lends a constant reminder of its presence.
