Schurhen is a relatively new company (established in 2008) as a family business in the town of Stukenbrock. Though new on the scene, they are committed to producing a quality product. To wit, they’ve done things like see if they can wind the watch under water without ill effect, and submitting a watch to the harsh environment of the Kuwaiti Desert.
The Gentleman is a classically handsome style, and I feel that it would work just fine in the office, or for a night out in a suit. It’s polished case is made of 316 stainless steel with a screwed-on caseback. The back features an observation window, allowing you to see the decorated and rose gold plated skeleton movement (manual wind).
Up front, you have a sapphire crystal (with AR coating, of course) covering the clean white dial. The Roman numerals (in black) are a stark contrast, and make things immediately readable. Those numerals also seem to lend to the upscale feel of the watch, as do the blued hands.
Finally, the calf leather strap completes the package and holds the watch in place, making for an understated package. Perhaps a black strap may help it blend in better for more formal occasions, but I suppose that’s up to the wearer. And really, that’s where the fun begins.
While Schurhen lists a robust collection, those are only a starting point for the watch you’ll end up with. What you’re going to end up doing is starting with your favorite model, and then work with them to customize the watch to your liking. That, of course, makes pricing a bit variable – but you’ll end up with exactly what you want.
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.
