Product Description

The Stuhrling Original Story

With dedication to the heritage of Swiss watchmaking, Stuhrling Original timepieces appeal to the most discriminating taste at reasonable prices. The company has roots dating back to the 1800s when Switzerland emerged as the global leader in watchmaking. Stuhrling Original remains committed to its mission of preserving the high standards set in Switzerland manufacturing all of their fine timepieces in their Swiss-owned factory. Each and every model conveys an inimitable story with extraordinary style. You'll find heirloom selections for both men and women that even the most astute watch collector will cherish and admire.

In the workshops of Stuhrling Original, the unit specializing in mechanical movements, component selection, assembly, lubrication, adjustment and testing creates horological wonders entirely under vigilant attention of Swiss ownership and supervision. It is these workshops that produce the mechanical engines that are famous for meeting the highest existing criteria in there category. Starting with the main plate, the assembly process is performed in several consecutive stages up until anchoring the balance spring, which sets the watch into motion. Assembling a Stuhrling Original mechanical automatic movement comprises no less than 30 checkpoints, spread throughout the assembly process. Adjusting the angle of lift of the pallets, centering the balance-spring, poising the balance are just a few examples of these checkpoints; of which all are designed to enhance the performance of each movement. The movement must meet no less than seven criteria, including a mean variation in rate which is the highest standard in the industry in its class.

Stuhrling Original cases are distinguished by their technical complexity, their high-end aesthetic appeal and the quality of their finish. The watch cases are made from antimagnetic 316L surgical grade stainless steel, an extremely sophisticated alloy designed to stand up to intensive use. The rough parts, known as "middlecases" are blanked from a metal bar using a high-performance press. They then undergo eight successive stamping operations of a strength increasing gradually from 20 to 85 tons. Before each swaging operation, the middlecase is refired at a temperature of 1100 degrees Celsius, so as to temporarily reduce the hardness to a total stamping pressure of more than 400 tons. Finishing the cases then calls for fifteen polishing operations, all performed by hand alternating with nine baths guaranteeing immaculate cleanliness. Other components of the cases, such as rotating bezels or rider tabs also require a meticulous finish. The components of the cases are finally assembled by hand and rigorously tested.

Each Stuhrling Original dial has been designed to enable optimal read-off at a glance, while adding an element of artistic design. Stuhrling Original's dials are blanked from a brass plate and two cylindrical feet are soldered below to ensure security with the movement. Polishing operations, creating special effects through the use of vintage hydraulic German machines, and electroplating are just some of the more than forty operations required to make most Stuhrling Original dials. The transparent protective coating is applied in an immaculately clean environment before the various inscriptions are transfer printed using a gelatin pad which takes an impression from an inked block. On many of the dials the hour markers are either individually applied by hand or embossed into the dial and then topped with a special dye. The application of Super Luminova is performed by artisans with a nozzle pen connected to a high-pressure pipe which calls for intense concentration. Once finished, each dial undergoes careful aesthetic scrutiny under extreme magnification, as well as technical testing, to ensure it complies with all predefined dimensions and specifications.

Through meticulous labour, rigorous testing and examination of each timepiece by expert horologists, the vision of the Stuhrling Original timepiece is brought to life inside our workshops, where...

When I received this "time piece", I absolutely loved it. It looked nice, and I thought that it was a great quality Swiss made watch.
However, 4 months later, the watch developed a problem, probably an imbalance in the internal mechanism, as when facing up, the "time piece" was stopping. Tilting it to a slight angle, and it started again.

The disappointed bit was more linked to the Sturhling customer service. My watch being under warranty, I expected to pay £0 to get it fixed. Well, it is covered by the warranty, but not the shipping and handling! This came up to about £12 to send the watch recorded & insured to the US (so much for the Swiss-made watch), and was charged $20 for handling charges (I haggled it down from $40!!).
I am still waiting for the watch to come back (it can take up to 6 weeks), but was expecting a total replacement rather than a repair considering the watch started failing 3 months after purchase!

I am left disappointed.
This was the most expensive "time piece" I have bought, yet it is the only one that has failed me. I have an automatic Fossil which is great, and various cheap automatic bought from Asia, which have never failed me (although they do not keep the charge as well).

I truly hope that the repair will have fixed the issue once and for all, but I find charging $40 for “handling and shipping” is a bit of a rip off, especially for watches still under warranty!
So at the moment. I feel like I wasted money on a "time piece of s***", thanks to Sturhling poor handling of the situation. When you acquire a £300+ watch (although I didn't pay as much for it), you expect to have zero issue, especially when my cheaper other watches performed without any issue... Sturhling put forward the "swiss made heritage" of their brand, but this is not what I experienced so far...
I might have been unlucky, but still...

This watch is absolutely gorgeous. It feels well made, keeps excellent time and is unique in its appearance. The only problem is the mechanism is so intriguing that I often go to check the time and stare at it for thirty seconds. Whilst I can't comment on the longevity of this product, I am confident it will last a long time.
