Review: Stuhrling Raven Diablo



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.

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.

    I didn’t find it to be. It seems like a more economical alternative to the traditional sapphire. I wear my Raven on a daily basis and have had no issues with it.

  2. Just ordered one. I have an Invicta I-Force and I’m excited to get this watch. I’ll add my review when I get it Monday.

  3. I got my watch today and it was awesome looking! The package was great and the watch looked great! I was so happy! BUT! It will not keep time… not even close. It jumps time at every five seconds and gains 8 to 10 seconds every minute. I love this watch and can’t wait for my replacement to come in. Bottom line… if it can’t keep time it’s just jewelry. I will write another review when my replacement comes. I hope it works good because I really love this watch. Really!

  4. I like the look and it feels good. The rubber strap is a little annoying trying to put it in the strap holders. Like the other comment it doesn’t keep time. It stops about 4 times a day and has to be hit to start working again. It costs $30 to send it back and get it fixed. If it breaks again I’ll just throw it away and give a few bad reviews.
