This Stührling Alpine men's watch exhibits a unique and enticing style that is sure to turn heads. The large 52-millimeter, surgical-grade stainless-steel, round case sports, and a skeletonized black dial with a gold-plated propeller-style faceplate, and luminous cigar-style hands outlined in gold. Protected by a domed mineral sapphire crystal, the face boasts embossed Arabic numerals at 4, 8, and 12 o'clock, and printed five-minute markers. Constructed of stainless-steel, the gold-plated chakram bezel, and globular crown with its black-rubber equatorial ring finish off the rarefied centerpiece. This unrivaled chronometer is showcased on a black 46-millimeter, genuine French-leather strap that features contrasted stitching, quick-release pins, and a stainless-steel tang-buckle clasp. As robust as it is exceptional, this analog watch runs on a 20-jewel, mechanical automatic movement that is powered by the motion of your wrist and is water resistant to a depth of 165 feet.
The Alpine Family is part of the Champion Collection, a select group of timepieces designed to fit your personal sense of style. These iconic Stuhrling Original timepieces are unique in that they feature propeller style faceplates and cigar hands. They are sporty, stylish, and an incredibly bold presence on the wrist.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
Chinese manufacture is not per se a bad thing, but as with many Chinese products, quality control may be excellent or may be very shoddy, and availability of parts and repairs is likely to vary as these brands and sellers appear and disappear. The watch forums show that this company is paying attention to customer service and - it at least one credible post - seems to be taking extra steps to insure repair customers are taken care of well. However, prospective buyers should search the Amazon reviews on these watches carefully - not just this watch but other models - they will discover a host of quality control issues with this company.
Many take exception with what they find is deceptive marketing and pricing done by this brand. In particular, the true origin of these watches is never honestly stated. I think the country of origin should not be hidden, but instead revealed somewhere in the ad, because that type of information is useful to the watch-buying public.
The ad copy for this watch is intended to make the buyer think this is a swiss watch. The words "Swiss" or Switzerland" are used 5 times in the first paragraph. Buyers are served up a load of malarkey about "traditional Swiss techniques" and "Swiss heritage", "Swiss watchmaking" and "antique German machines". There appears to be a genuine desire to deceive the unsophisticated buyer into thinking this is a Swiss watch.
Then there is this notion that this watch is an "Heirloom". This is a $150 watch to wear and enjoy, not an "investment".Read more ›
My husband always thinks I have spent a ton when he receives these watches. I am always smiling in the background, because I know what an amazing steal I have gotten.
The second time the watch broke it was a few weeks past the 2 year warranty so I'm now left with a broken watch. I pulled the crown out to set the watch and it came completely out of the watch. I'm very disappointed with the durability of this time peace.
