I saw a quote about Sturhling time pieces and here are my thoughts as an owner. I have the Sturhling Aviator multi function w/Swiss Movement and the brand is solid for me so far. I only had one warranty failure that was minor compared to other brands I have not repurchased. I would not recommend the Sturhling models that use chinese movements as I have seen multiple failures posted on the new about them. I stick with swiss movements.
