The Millennia Ravine is one of Stuhrling Original’s most unique timepieces. It features a solid stainless steel tonneau-shaped case with a pure mechanical bridge movement that allows you to see completely through the case; there are no extraneous parts getting in the way. Furthermore, the movement itself is richly decorated with deeply engraved scrollwork, then plated to match each execution. The Millennia Ravine’s protective Krysterna crystals also include an etched spider web pattern, as well as the Arabic numerals 12 and 6. The alligator embossed genuine leather strap makes this bold timepiece comfortable and stylish.
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.
The Millennia Family is part of the Leisure Collection, which features one of Stuhrling Original's most iconic designs. Members of this family feature a bold tonneau-style case with skeletonized dials that show off their delicate movements. Those that feature a round case design have beautiful record-style bezels with Stuhrling "S" screws.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Manual Mechanical Movement
The hand-wound mechanical movement is perhaps the most classical of movements. It operates exclusively by the daily (or sometimes more often) winding of the crown to power the mainspring (the “heart” of the movement). Unlike its automatic mechanical counterpart, this type of movement does not feature a rotor. The energy source is the mainspring (a spring coiled into a tight spiral) which is wound manually by the wearer twisting the crown, usually in a clockwise direction. As time progresses, the spring begins to uncoil, releasing the energy needed to activate the various wheels and make the movement tick. Without routine winding of the crown, the hand-wound mechanical movement will eventually lose power. Thus, mechanical hand-wound movements usually require daily winding. A hand-wound movement requires greater care than almost all other types of movements because once the mainspring is fully wound, additional tension may cause it to break.
• Complications: Classic Two Hand Movement
• Dial: No Dial
• Hands: Alpha-Style Hands

Quality - So this watch is not for everyone. I agree with other reviews that it's not the highest quality, but it's not really that bad. For example, the edge of the band connection channel is buffed to round the edge and is not super-even. That said, it's not obviously off - it takes close examination to see the imperfection. The band itself is pretty stiff and shiny which makes it seem cheap, but it's genuine leather and we'll have to see how it wears over time. Other than that, I don't really see what people don't like about the quality. It's about what I expect in the price range and for this unique design. Maybe I'm easy to please, but it's sub-$200... I can't remember seeing a sub-$200 watch where I was like, "Wow, that's a high-quality watch"
Size - It's a pretty large watch and I think that's a good thing for this design. Any smaller and it'd look like a woman's watch.
Weight - The size also makes it feel pretty heavy. It's nowhere near the heft of my stainless steel Bulova Marine Star, but I was pleasantly surprised how heavy this felt given there's not much there.
Reading Time - It takes some getting used to for reading time with it. There's only a 12 and a 6 on the front face and the other hours are marked with white lines on the back glass. I have pale skin so the white does not contrast against my skin well enough to see it. If you have darker skin, this will be much easier to read. I wish there was a black line option for us pale-skins.
Keeping Time - At first I didn't think it kept time very well, but then I figured out that I didn't wind it enough. Once I wound it all the way, it keeps time very well. Now I keep on top of winding it (every 24-36 hours). Also, you can see the spring and the movement and can tell when it's unwound too much.
Design - This is what I like about this watch. I especially like two things in a watch: 1. Seeing the mechanics/movement and 2. Unique design. It passes on #1 - there's not much to see b/c it's so simple, but the movement is visible as is the spring and a few gears. It really passes on #2. I give a lot of credit to Stuhrling for venturing to try something new. I have already received a few positive comments after less than a week of wearing it and that rarely happens with my other watches.
All in all, I'm happy with the watch.
OK, now I have the replacement. Amazon got it to me in just a couple of days.awesome service.
On to the replacement. I've only had it for 24 hours, but it appears to have kept those 24 hours as accurately as any watch I own. Which is too many! I have to reiterate the artistic design of this watch. When I was a boy, my uncle had a skeleton Pulsar that has ever since been the ideal I sought in a watch. This is as close as I expect to find. It is a watch people notice. But the replacement watch is also a timepiece, and so makes it a watch that can be worn every day rather than just when time really doesn't need to be accurate. I don't need the date because calendars are everywhere. I don't need a second hand because I don't time anything. But I like to know the time, and this watch gives it to me with more style than a slob like me deserves.
I would rate the replacement watch a FIVE, but left the review as a four because of the problem with the original. Is it fair to do that? I don't know, but I would absolutely recommend this watch to those looking for a timepiece with flair.
