The terms “contemporary” and “classic” appear to be somewhat contradictory. After all, we often associate the former with ideas that are modern, in vogue and in tune with the latest trends. And we ascribe the latter adjective to items from the past that have stayed popular despite the passage of time.
So is it possible for something to be both “classic” and “contemporary” at the same time? Stuhrling wristwatches are.
All Stuhrling watches have been crafted with the same design excellence and attention to detail as the ones that were first created way back in the 19th century. These timepieces embody the term “Swiss-made” because their accuracy and durability has remained unmatched over the decades. This emphasis on quality was the reason Swiss-made watches became so highly sought after in the 1800’s – and is the basis for their continued popularity in the new millennium.
Stuhrling watches are also known for being contemporary because their styles appeal to the tastes of today’s buyer while still maintaining vestiges of the designs of the original Swiss timepieces. So in essence, any Stuhrling wristwatch purchased today will not only satisfy the needs of the modern man, but its basic design would also be just as handsome on the wrist of the same man’s great-great-grandfather.
That’s why Stuhrling watches can be found almost anywhere you look. Men will wear their Stuhrling wristwatch to the office and then to happy hour – and it looks right at home in both settings. A Stuhrling watch is appropriate both for a Saturday night on the town and a Sunday morning worship service. And you’re just as likely to see Stuhrling watches at fine dining establishments and wine bars as you are at golf courses and ball games.
Here are some of today’s most popular Stuhrling watches.
Original Bermuda Quartz GMT Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch
The brown or blue bezel is adorned with a GMT scale and surrounds a beautiful round stainless steel case. The round silver tone dial displays gold tone Arabic numerals and a date window over which luminous gold tone hour and minute hands and a red-tipped GMT hand move. The two-tone stainless steel bracelet attaches to the wrist with a push button deployant clasp.
Gatsby Skeletonized Mechanical Leather Strap Watch
Part of the world-renowned Gatsby collection, this timepiece showcases every bit of its Swiss-made precision through its skeletonized dial. The rounded rectangular stainless steel case in gunmetal or gold tone coordinates nicely with the main dial and the seconds subdial. The blue or black luminous hands sweep over the dial index markers, and a genuine black leather strap affixes the timepiece to your wrist.
Original Manchester Square Quartz Chronograph Rubber Strap Watch
This watch will turn heads, thanks to its comfortable rubber strap in green, yellow or red. The silver tone stainless steel case and the black or white dial are both square-shaped for a distinctive look. On the dial itself, a seconds subdial and a chronograph subdial share space with a date window and Arabic numerals, and time is kept by the luminous second, minute and hour hands.
Original Heritage Classic Automatic Leather Strap Watch
The simple charm of this wristwatch calls to mind the distinguished timepieces of yesteryear. The light or dark brown leather strap fastens to the exhibition back on this watch. The round stainless steel case is available in gold, rose or silver tone, and the dial comes in your choice of champagne, silver tone or black. Case coordinating hands and index markers finish out the classic appearance, but a date window and seconds subdial provide just the right touch of contemporary functionality.
Original Baily Grand Automatic Leather Strap Watch
The round silver tone stainless steel case and the push pull crown perfectly accent the striking design on the dial of this watch. Bold intersecting gold lines and curves share space with the rose tone or gold tone index markers and Arabic numerals on the round black dial. This timepiece also features a day of the week subdial and seconds subdial, and a date retrograde stretches across the center of the watch. It all comes together on your wrist with a black strap made of genuine leather.
All Stuhrling timepieces are backed by the company’s two-year limited warranty. And every Stuhrling watch will arrive in its own attractive box along with a polish cloth and instruction manual.
Stuhrling has often been described as producing watches with an “ear to the past and an eye on the future.” In other words, Stuhrling prides itself on crafting wristwatches with touches of modern flair intermingled with a stately, traditional design. Or, as others might say, “contemporary classic” watches. Although it may seem counterintuitive to mix the old and the new, the artisans at Stuhrling do this every day with each precision timepiece that they create.
