Gee, I wonder where Stuhrling got this design...

Post by WatchDorks.Net » April 9th 2012, 6:57am

But it's an original design... really...

Doin' Hammy proud... or not.

(I've seen worse homage/replica executions, but this one is seriously blatant.)

You know, as much as I rag on IWG, SO is that much worse. I mean, such bald-faced design theft for a "brand" that calls itself "original" is just...well, it just screams "TV brand."

There you go, big Lar.

Yep, although realistically it will hit about $160 when it actually airs and goes to "sale price".

If I really wanted a Chinese fake instead of a real Hammy, I'd want the savings to be extreme. I would buy one of these instead and it probably would be built about as well as the Stuhrling, for $52.99 shipped:

Or this one for $53.48:

Why spend $150-200 on a Stuhrling POS?

I agree.
Posted that fake in the Insane Klone Posse thread over the weekend.

...the Stuhrling looks like an "off the shelf" EYKI (pretty sure it's from the same folks as brought ya IK Coloring, AK Homme, etc.)

The Eyki is $55 on Ebay.

Alberta, I really mean this: I'd rather be seen sporting that Eyki than an SO tourbillon. At least the Eyki is being sold for about what it is worth. The entire SO line is only about 75% overpriced, brought on with smoke and mirrors by a grinning TV hypemeister.

Hey...I'd take this one over a Hammie any day. Look at that fine hand crafted child slave labor movement decoration. Hammie doesn't have the balls to do anything like that.

Depends on the make. I've seen Seagull movements that were quite nice.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

That one's not bad actually. I was talking more of the ones you usually see on ebay.
