Get a view of the details with the men's Argent Automatic Skeleton watch from the Classic collection by Stuhrling Original. A handsome skeletonized dial is protected by a Krysterna crystal on front and back. The triple link row bracelet is constructed from solid stainless steel and secured with a fold-over push button clasp. Step out in style with this history-inspired timepiece.
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 Delphi Family belongs to the Classic Collection, and they include timepieces that feature mechanical and automatic movements. Many of them also utilize an exquisite triple step design bezel.
Summary of Features
• Movement: Automatic
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: Classic Three Hand Movement

It's a polished stainless steel (vs. a matte look) just in case anyone is wondering. The band is larger than normal, I normally have to remove 2 links for a not too tight but not too loose fit... this one required 3 links. I'm not a big fan of the blue hands but like the blue numerals and overall is a nice looking watch that will look nice with casual attire (just from a style perspective). The only other "style" nitpick I have is the Stuhrling circle at the lower portion of the face... eh, not really a big fan as I think it takes away from the skeleton look.
The automatic movement required more winding than the other automatic watches I have as they seem to do better winding from kinetic motion than this watch, but it's manageable and if you have other automatic watches you are probably already used to having to set the watch every now and then. To be fair, my other automatic watches aren't in the "reasonable" range so I'd expect the movement to be far far better. I bought this as a casual watch with something different (skeleton look) and affordable automatic movement and it fits that fairly well. I'd buy another Stuhrling.
As it is expected out of automatic watches, I followed the instructional FAQ and video on the Stuhrling website on how to start an automatic watch for the first time. All in vain, this watch didn't work at all.
After a day of researching on internet, I found no other meaningful help in this case and I finally returned it back to Amazon for a refund.
