Of all the watches that I’ve reviewed this week, the Raven Diablo has to be my favorite. The styling really works for me. It’s not as traditional as the Atlas or the Millenia, but it’s also not as far out there as the Centurion. I like the silver accent points, and the carbon fiber layer really makes it work for me. Like the other watches from Stuhrling, this one is made from surgical steel, and a real sense of quality about it.
Stuhrling again went with the ST 90089, a basic movement, that keeps excellent time. I only needed to adjust it about two minutes per week, which is quite impressive for an auto-wind. You can clearly see all of the gears moving, and watch the main spring compress as you wind it.
The case, while chunky, is gently curved on the back, providing a very comfortable feel against the wrist. This provides a feeling of quality, as the rubber band hold the watch firmly in place. Considering what you get for $229.99, it’s a good value. Nothing about any of the Stuhrling watches feels cheap, or flimsy.
If you want more on Stuhrling, they do have a website. I had some trouble navigating it, however the Amazon store is much easier to search and find what you are looking for. Now for the obvious comparison at this price point: yes, I own an Invicta, and I would recommend a Stuhrling over the stuff that Invicta puts out any day.
