This one looks better than the Rolex version--which isn't saying much.

Orient made one too. These are from circa 1958.

Leave it to Sturhling to knock off a $150 watch. That's just sad.

Is that Orient a copy of something? Or an original design by them?

It's a copy of the Stuhrling, who then copied it back.

Possibly, but I doubt it. It looks like a retro-future design reject. The Orient is from their "sporty automatics" line, and is among their least expensive outside of the venerable 3 stars.

Could be but it does look like something I've seen another Swiss Company do?

Well, could be. Orient has certainly lifted a few, as the good Mr. Recliner demonstrated, as did I a few posts ago.
Still, Orient over the years has many original and sometimes funky designs. The "retro-future" line has some interesting pieces, for example. Sturhling just sucks. Like invicter et al, they are "both good and original, but the part that is original is not good, and the part that is good is not original."

(Apologies to S. Johnson)

Funny as this may sound I've only seen one Sturhling in person it was at a Marshall's years ago when they were selling watches took one look at it held it and thought what a POS. It was one of their Chinese skeleton watches.

I bought one...

They are as big a POS as any watch you will get in a 25 cent bubble gum machine. Worst bezel I have yet encountered. Even the NATO on it felt cheap. The box was worth more than the watch and was made with far greater care. Sold it in a big hurry after wearing it for less than 24 hours total. A real loser!

Of note, Kadloo and Stuhrling Original are made by the same company. Kadloo is a helluva' step up from Stuhrling but not worth what they are asking for them...not by far. Sold my Kadloo, too. Kadloo kept great time though.

Never heard of kadloo? I believe Arkbos is also a part of the same company or they own Sturhling or vise versa?

All you fucking haters! First off, Akribos and Stuhrling are indeed the same company with the same address - my good friend from the TV box told me so. So I listened to the right voices and made the right cherces.

On top of that - what design theft? I look at lotsa SO models in my local bodegas and TJ Maxx stores, and I don't notice any design elements they pick up from others. When they say Stuhrling Original, they mean it, by gum! Frankly, I think the other brands cop from SO...

Like Breitling...

and Hublot...
Image

...even Rolex isn't immune...
Image

...Skywatch should be ashamed...
Image

...and Rolex, twice? Really? Not only are they expensive, they do things like this!
Image

You guys are justa buncha frog-hoppin' haters. You're just jealous because I can buy 1,300 SOs for the price of one Omega. Fuckers!
