    Stuhrling

    In the 'Monday thread' I just spotted a Stuhrling watch.

    Never heard of this brand so thought I would check them out. Amazingly cheap with mixed reviews.

    Good everyday cheap, reliable watch or stay well clear?

    General consensus is they are cheap and quality is unpredictable. Some have found good watches that have served them well, and others have found junk that breaks after a week. It's sort of a gamble, and therefore a turn-off.

    If you are looking for cheap and reliable, look to Citizen and Seiko.

    Quality is hit / miss, although more hits than misses... generally. Reputed to have decent post-sale CS, although I have never used them. (I do all my own DIY repairs and mods.) My understanding is they do repairs in North America wherever possible, so turnaround times are generally very fast.

    Review of mine here:
    The WatchBox Review: Stuhrling Original Seahawk - YouTube

    As with most high volume manufacturers, their more simple / less complex designs are going to be more reliable with fewer defects... IMHO
    Mine had a case screw that came loose, and the sweep second hand fell off. I like mine and it gets regular wrist-time, although honestly/admittedly I have a hard time openly recommending the brand without hesitation.







    They import seagull & Dixmont-Guangzhou movements and dress them up with colored screws, polished chassis parts and decorated rotors. Each movement is then identified by a Stuhrling caliber number. So at a glance they look like in-house movements, but they really are not... they are ~50% in house if you will. Re-dressing box engine movements is a VERY common practice across the industry... at the very least most watchmakers will swap the wind rotors one of their own. Stuhrling takes it a step further though with screws and re-finished chassis parts.

    They also have some "SWISS MADE" as well as "SWISS MOVEMENT" models too.

    I have seen some decent Stuhrling deals at my local TJ maxx stores.

    Re: Stuhrling

    I have one. It doesn't really ever get worn anymore. I believe I paid $57 for it. So for that how can you complain? I honestly get a decent amount of complements on it. The fit and finish is good for the price. I don't like the non-hacking movement. I bought it before I really knew about watches. All in all I still prefer this to a run of the mill quartz Fossil!
