From the Manufacturer
The dauphine hands style is very popular among top luxury brands. It is a wide, tapered style with a central facet, similar to a sword. However, sometimes these hands are flat, not faceted. The name, ‘Dauphine’ is French, and it is also the name of geographical locations, including a section of the Alps.
Self-Winding Automatic Movement:
The heart of any self-winding automatic movement is the Rotor: a semi-circular metal piece encased within the back of the watch. The rotor is designed to manipulate the effects of gravity using it’s weight to be the energy source for the movement. When worn on the wrist, your arm swings back and forth, and this piece moves back and forth inside the watch, which winds the mainspring. Therefore, every move of your arm serves as a tiny ‘refresh’ for the mechanism and keeps the watch wound easily. The spring in the watch typically stores enough energy to keep the watch going for about a day and a half, if you leave it off your wrist.
Individually Applied Arabic Numerals and Stick Indices:
Also known as, 'Applique Indices' these are raised markers attached to the dial, demarcating the hours. Just another labor-intensive step that is part of our manufacturing process, requiring close attention to detail for every single Stührling watch.
Intended for the man with discriminating taste, Stuhrling Original's Denmark watch, with its alligator-embossed leather strap, stainless steel knurl-edge crown, and intricate skeleton face and back, is like no other. Automatic self-winding movement with analog display Protective Krysterna crystal dial window on front and back Features include gray face plate with inner dial 24-hour counter and rose-tone numerals with outer minute track Water-resistant to 50 m (165 feet)

Top Customer Reviews
I have only two complaints at the moment. First, the watch makes no noise at all. I would have liked to hear this watch tick because the gears are all exposed. I wish the Timex was this silent. Second, when I set the time, the sweep second hand would not stop moving and it was very difficult to get the watch exactly on time. I had to slowly turn the watch backwards to get it to not move.
I hope the Stuhrling watch can hold up over time. It comes with a two-year warranty at least. I will update this review if I have any problems...
"When worn daily, the movement of your wrist causes the mainspring to wind progressively, eliminating the need for additional winding. However, to start your automatic, it is recommended that you manually wind it by rotating the crown clockwise a number of turns while it is in its normal operating position (screw-down crowns will need to be unscrewed first). This will place some initial power on the mainspring to begin wearing your watch. You should wind it until you feel some resistance, while being careful not to “over-wind” the mainspring. If you hold the watch to your ear while you are winding your watch, you will hear a ratcheting noise; that is the sound of the mainspring being wound.
While wearing a mechanical automatic timepiece daily will keep the mainspring wound, the movement of the oscillating piece with the Stührling logo on it (the rotor) seen through the crystal on the back does not generate enough force to wind the mainspring beyond a certain point. If it did, then surely the mainspring could become over-wound and lock up. However, the slightest movement of the rotor will keep the mainspring wound and keep your timepiece running."
Don't buy Stuhrling. It seems like their watches are a hit and miss when it comes to quality. I thought I would be on the good side since good reviews outweigh the bad reviews, but I guess lesson learned. Buy Swiss made watches if you're looking for automatic movement.
Update after 3 weeks:
I'm downgrading it to 3 stars. Still a good-looking watch. It does have a tendency to stop ticking overnight sometimes, however, even with daily wear. I've noticed that if I fully wind it and then wear it daily (10-12 hours each day), it will stop ticking by about the third morning (after only being off the wrist for about 12 hours). The rotor doesn't seem to rotate as freely as it probably should; maybe that's why. Its accuracy is decent for an inexpensive watch.
