When Stuhrling first contacted us to do a review, they sent a Centurion. When it arrived, I’ll admit, the design threw me off for a bit. The unique font, the extremely sharp and square case – this didn’t reflect the type of watch I typically wear. To be fair, I didn’t care for it all that much. I was determined to give the watch a fair chance however, and wore it on a daily basis for a while, just to collect some opinions.
Once I stopped walking on a lean, due to the heavy weight and serious construction (almost all Stuhrling watches are constructed of surgical stainless steel) I started to like the thing. It keeps great time, has a very unique look to it, and is the type of watch that it’s ok to wear on a daily basis. It’s ok if it gets a little scratched on the buckle, because it’s tough. In fact, I’d almost say it could probably stop a bullet if it needed to.
Admittedly, the Centurion is not for everyone. It is a very large watch, as you can see from the pictures. My wrists aren’t exactly small, and the Centurion is almost a little too large for me. I do like it however, and it is reliable and very well constructed.
MSRP on this watch is $1140, however if you shop around you can find them deeply discounted. I was able to find the Centurion for $329.99 on Amazon.
Tomorrow we’ll be taking a look at the Stuhrling Atlas, a watch that takes its design from some classic styling.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
