Review of the Stuhrling Men’s Original Leisure Eagle Osprey Watch.

The Stuhrling Leisure Eagle Osprey watch has many good things going for it.

I bought the Stuhrling Leisure Eagle Osprey watch over a year ago for $80.00CDN at Amazon.ca.  I have not been disappointed.  I did not receive any promotions whatsoever for this product and this is a wholly unsolicited and personal review.

Review of the Stuhrling Men’s Leisure Eagle Osprey Watch

Here are some of the key reasons why I feel the Stuhrling Men’s Leisure Eagle Osprey Watch represents excellent value:

Packaging

The packaging of this Stuhrling watch looks like that of many higher end watches. It comes in a very well-built and stylish box complete with a luxurious lining.  The documentation is also presented very nicely.  I can’t help but wonder how much packaging like this costs, however.  Yes, it does look great and is a very classy presentation, but might the cost of this been used to lower the cost even further or to increase the quality to an even more impressive degree?  I am not a fan of fancy packaging generally, but it sure did look nice when I received it.

Quality

I have had the Stuhrling Osprey watch for about a year now and it works as beautifully as the first day I received it. It keeps accurate time and the battery has not yet needed replacement. The band is a high-quality soft leather that has held up to almost daily (and sometimes rugged) use very well. The watch itself has a good weight to it and it is very sturdy. The casing, in fact, feels almost indestructible.  The adjustment pin also feels very sturdy and has a very smooth and precise action. It looks and feels like much more than an $80.00 watch (the price I paid for it).

Aesthetics

I own quite a large number of watches, but this Stuhrling is the one that I certainly wear the most.  It also gets the most compliments. It looks and feels like a good quality timepiece. The blue numerals look modern and they are easy to read (a big plus if your eyesight, like mine, isn’t what it once was). It works well as a casual watch but could also pass for a dressier one if need be.

Pricing

Stuhrling watches often seem often have a regular retail price of around $300-400 on Amazon.ca. They always seem to be always heavily discounted on Amazon.ca, however. Like most things that are often heavily discounted, it begs the question of why the original retail price is always listed as being so high? Why not just list the price lower? I know full well that something is only worth as much as people are willing to pay for it.  In spite of this, the watch can be had at a good discounted price and I believe that it represents excellent value at $80.00.

Summary

In my opinion, the Stuhrling Leisure Eagle Osprey Men’s watch is a great value at $80.00. It has held up very well to regular use over a year and a half and gets many compliments. It feels good to wear, is built very well, and it also keeps accurate time. I feel good about the value I have received for this watch, but wonder why the retail price is always so much higher than the actual price that it is being offered at. I cannot think of any negative aspects about this watch. I am very happy with this purchase at the $80.00 price point.
