Krysterna Crystals

Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.

Summary of Features

• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Automatic Movement

Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.

Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They're considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).

• Complications: Three Hand Movement with Quick Set Date
• Dial: Simple Dial
• Hands: Plume-Style Hands

    This is a really nice watch the box it comes in is a little over the top. All around a very nice watch, easy to see the time, and it is self winding. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because the dial on the outside of the watch hits my hand sometime.

    This watch has a large easy to read dial. It is easy to set and will be perfect for my occupation as a ship's Master! The band is leather and will become comfortable and pliant with time. The price is excellent and delivery, even over the Christmas break was fast and trackable! Thanks!

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this watch when I bought it off of a Gold Box deal a couple of weeks ago. I really like the look and feel of this watch. The build is extremely high quality and on the back of the watch you can see through the "window" in the back into the workings of the watch. Some people were complaining of the large size of the watch, I didn't feel like it was obnoxiously large. Naturally it is going to be bigger than some but it doesn't look gaudy. The package screams quality from moment you open the bright orange box. As another reviewer stated the watch band is stiff because it is real leather. Use some softball glove oil on that and it will clear up. Overall, I am very pleased with this watch!

    When I saw this watch I knew I had to have it. Impressed right out of the box. Very clean look. Many complements already. The reason I didn't give it 5stars is im at the last loop on the strap. This may be an issue for guys with 8+ in. wrists like me. Other than that, great watch!

    Really enjoy wearing this watch. Comfortable and pretty sporty looking. However, the band is a it short for me. My wrist size is European Standard Long, (7.75-8"). So the band was pretty tight. I was able to get it to fasten at the 1st & 2nd notch.

    Also, the luminous glow is really faint. Even after leaving it out for a day, the hands are difficult to pick up at night. However, blasting it with 1000 Lumens, the hands clearly were visible in the dark.

    The overall quality of the watch is superb for the price paid. The only issue I have is with the band. I still need to break it in, but it feels too rigid and of cheaper quality than my other automatic watch that I wear daily. I bought this watch so I don't have to worry about beating it up or getting water into the case. This watch meets this specific purpose and looks good too. If you're trying to find a nice formal automatic watch, I think it's a great value for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it for a collector or someone that's really into watches.

    The watch worked right out of the box and has run trouble-free since then. It also hacks, meaning the second hand stops when you pull the crown to set the time, a synchronizing feature rare among entry-level automatics. The case is 48-mm wide, better for a thick-wristed traveller checking time in a darkened airplane cabin, not for my thin wrist. The hands and markers on this model (the 129XL 335565) are only very slightly luminous, a condition that has not improved even with prolonged exposure to light. The watch gains about 11 seconds per day, measured on the atomic website Time.Is. I'd say that's pretty good for the $40 I bid on it. I can't say how long this piece will keep ticking or whether it will tell the correct time until my own time's up. But when you find or bid for one new at a price much lower than previously advertised, you should go for it. (But you might find out first which models of this series really lumes up!)
