The History of Sturhling      


The Sturhling  watch company had its beginnings in the early 1800’s. They disappeared and then made a grand rebirth in 1999. Their  philosophy is rooted in their earliest beginnings. They have carried the old world values of watchmaking into the 21st century. Their thinking is such that even though a watch is a piece to tell time with. The minute is is handcrafted it becomes a piece of art. The company came back into public view in 1999. They are headquartered in the United States but some, f not all their watches are made in China. They are still making fine stuhrling watches in China. The company says their watches are made with traditional Swiss quality. They use the highest quality materials: 316L surgical-grade stainless steel, top grain genuine leather, and custom-molded silicone rubber straps. They maintain the highest quality in the making of their products. For example, their Delphi family of watches, are made in the grand tradition of the skeleton watches of the 1900’s. They have made thousands of watches since 1999, that remind of us of our great horological (the study of time)  history.


1. The Aquadiver Regatta Champion  


This particular reviewer has personally selected the Stuhrling Original Men's 824.01 Regatta Analog Japanese Quartz Stainless Steel Watch as their favorite watch. The watch features:
  • A 2 year standard warranty
  • Round stainless steel black dial with brightly illuminated numbers, counterclockwise-rotating bezel, screw down crown, and magnified date window at 3 o’clock position
  • 42mm stainless steel round case with crown guard and shatter resistant Krysterna crystal dial window      
  • Japanese quartz movement with analog display
  • Stainless steel link bracelet with fold over clasp that is safe
  • Water resistant to 200m or 660ft. This watch has a screw-in crown, which you will find in diver’s watches. This prevents water from getting into the watch case through the stem hole. When this is screwed down it gives a very fine water tight fit. Like a jar lid to a jar  

The Good Reviews
  • The pictures don’t do the watch justice. It’s a very nice looking watch
  • It comes on a nice pillow display. The links are easy to take off to transport to the jeweler for repair.
  • The watch comes in a nice scotch box
  • The instructions are clear and concise
  • Comes with a standard 2 year warranty
  • Get this it comes with a microfiber cloth for cleaning
The Bad Reviews
  • The watch date is always a day off. dIsappointing for a watch valued at $600.00 dollars
  • The watch is simply a piece of junk. Don’t buy it
  • The consumer owned the watch for a few months and the chain broke twice. It broke just from the consumer clapping his hands with the watch in them.
  • The crown is a little rough when turning
  • The watch isn’t worth the price. It’s more of a $50-60 dollar watch
  • The package was opened and a note said “Don’t wear this watch in the shower. Say what! It’s supposed to be water resistant down to 600ft.

Summary:
The reviews both positive and negative teeter from one extreme to the other. The person with the positive comments about the watch really loved it. The comments by those who didn’t like it really didn’t like it. This leads one to believe you will either really love this watch or you will really hate this watch. There seems to be no middle ground.
