Where Stührling Watches Are Made – And What Makes Them Great

Post by koimaster » April 26th 2019, 4:22pm

Stührling watches are made with precision and care. That’s why we’ve been around for over fifteen years.

Now, for the first time, we’re ready to pull back the curtain and reveal where our watches are made—and what makes them a favorite of so many wrists.

The design and development of our timepieces takes place in our Park Slope mothership in Brooklyn, NY. Long before it was hip to call yourself a Brooklynite, we were connecting with Stührling owners around the world through our ongoing digital dialogue to refine designs and ensure satisfaction on wrists everywhere. But when it comes to manufacturing our designs, we went to the same place that Apple, Bose, Sony, and other market-leaders turned to: Shenzhen.

Simply put, the world-class manufacturing capabilities found in this part of China’s Guangdong province rivals (actually, surpasses) everywhere from Silicon Valley to Stuttgart in terms of quality, performance, and value. For a generation that cares more about how something is made rather than where it’s made, brands looking to deliver both maximum quality and value don’t have to look farther than Shenzhen.

By now you’re probably wondering why a client list full of top-tier tech brands would be of interest to a company in the business of classically inspired timepieces—not to mention the movements that power them. And though our skeleton watches, divers, and tourbillons thrill in the same way as the latest tech accessories do, the core designs and “technology” of watches have remained pretty much unchanged for almost three centuries. But despite having the whole world to choose from, Stührling opted for Shenzhen—the Switzerland of world-class manufacturing and the perfect place to launch a watch brand that would go on to disrupt the industry.

Huh?


I wondered at that, too--until I understood that, like Switzerland is mecca for watch building (as long as one ignores Germany), Shenzhen is mecca for large-scale modern manufacturing. That's not an unreasonable claim, especially if one includes the entire Shenzhen-Zhuhai-Guangzhou triumvirate.

Ron I think the part that confused me about the above statement is the part that said "a watch brand that would go on to disrupt the industry."

Well said. When I see a captain of industry wearing a watch with many complications, I assume the watch is a VC or A. Lange.

When I see Pete from the Jiffylube pit wearing a watch with many complications, I assume the watch is a SO.

I think in some senses they did. They were early on the Chinese tourbillon game, and I think in many ways they were important in ushering in the micro brand revolution. Stuhrling made it clear that a smaller, non-Swiss/German, company could write an entertaining story and become profitable if they manufactured in China.

World class is such an oxymoronic phrase
Since we have such a class running our country, elite is another
My bowels get disrupted when people use words with no meaning.
This watch and other micro... now major brands... including Invicta
When worn by people in fancy dress, are no better that clones to me.
Guy wearing a 700 dollar suit, perfumed and scarf... sporting an Invicta....
What a scene. Saw it last week at a funeral... can’t get it out of my mind
Was degrading

You guys are such haters! A watch expert on some other website tells us differently:

I have come to think of this watch -- the "Ricochet" -- as Stuhrling's most stunning, despite the fact that it's pretty much a copy of the Hamilton "Ventura," which, in itself, was/is one of the most amazing watch builds in the history of Horology.

These wartches are made. Why they are so stunning that I've always believed they just materialized out of thin air. Learn something new everyday in this joint.

I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
Now you're telling me all your lies
I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' go back where you been

You better get back to your used to be
Now this song's stuck in my head Gosh Damn you T
I hear you knockin' but you can't la la
la la la hmm hmm l

I told you way back in '52

Frankly, I've always believed that SO's lavish HQ in scenic Brooklyn belies the fine Swiss quality of their one-of-a-kind wares.
