Stührling is an American company with roots dating back to the 1800s. Although the company had always been involved in the watch making business, it wasn’t until its rebirth in 1999 that Stuhrling proved its mantle. When creating watches, Stuhrling integrates the modern flair with a traditional appeal to create timepieces that look like intricate work of art. We will find more about that in this Stuhrling Watches Review!
As of September 2014, Stuhrling had 16 different collections of watches for men and women under its name. The most popular brand of Stührling is Stührling Original.
Today, I am going to shed light on the diver style watches from the Stuhrling Original collection and bedazzle you with their style, elegance, and durability.

Best Stuhrling Watches Review – 2016 Update
Stührling Original Aquadiver Regatta 395.33U16 (Stainless Steel Bracelet)
With many innovative features and eye-catching design elements packed into one watch, the Aquadiver Regatta is more of a piece of art. The exterior of the watch speaks volumes about Stuhrling’s craftsmanship. It has a masculine shape and size which depict durability. The triple-row link bracelet is two tone, with the side links having a brushed finish and polished centre links. The bracelets is connected by a stainless steel deployment clasp with two push buttons.
Adjoining the bracelet is a beautifully manicured coin-edged unidirectional bezel which has markers for timing the number of minutes you have been under water. The watch is water-resistant up to 200 meters. The screw-down crown is guarded by shoulders on either side and has the Stuhrling logo etched on it.
Inside the bright blue bezel is a dial of the same color, boasting large Arabic numbers at 3, 6, 9, and 12 and wide stick markers for the rest. The date window has been placed at an unusual position between 4 and 5’o clock markers. The markers and sword-style hour and minute hands are luminescent, but unfortunately the glow doesn’t last long. Shrouding the dial is a Krysterna Crystal.
The party on the inside is a Swiss Quartz movement – the Harley Ronda 515 with 1 jewel. Most buyers have found that the watch gains only about 3 seconds in one month.
Stührling Original Aquadiver Quartz 824.01
Buyers have been raving about the packaging of the Stuhrling Aquadiver Quartz, one having said that the box looks like that of a high-end scotch, which adds a feel of sophistication and class even before the watch is slipped onto the wrist. Imagine what you’ll find inside!
A gorgeous timepiece snuggled onto a pillow waiting to adorn your wrist. The Aquadiver Quartz, as the name suggests, is powered by Quartz movement with analog display. However, the black dial has geometrical hour markers instead of numbers, with a date window at 3’o clock position topped by a Cyclops. The hour, minutes, and seconds hands are all uniquely shaped and luminescent. Krysterna Crystal covers the dial and keeps the watch protected up to 200 meters under water.
The scalloped edges of the counterclockwise-rotating black bezel give it a unique shine with a textured screw-down crown at 3’o clock position. An elegant triple-link bracelet protrudes from the bezel and meets at a deployment clasp. Those wanting to replace the bracelet with a NATO might be disappointed as the bracelet is not changeable.
The watch comes with extra links so you can easily add or remove them yourself if you have a tool kit, or take it to a jeweler. Very clear instructions are given on kick-starting the watch with a registration card the two year warranty. It not only looks and feels durable, but also is a very sturdy timepiece that will remain by your side for long.
Stührling Original Aquadiver Regatta 706.02 (Rubber Strap)
Inspired by yacht racing lifestyle, the Stuhrling Aquadiver Regatta 706.02 with rubber strap is the ideal timepiece for all your aquatic expeditions. Be it the pool, river, or ocean, this sporty diver’s watch will not disappoint you.
If you are not a fan of over-sized watches, this watch is perfect for you as several buyers have complimented it for its size. But that’s not all – the 22 mm rubber strap of the Aquadiver Regatta 706.02 is made of high-grade silicon that is super smooth and comfortable and won’t stick to your skin. A stainless steel tang-type buckle clasps the watch around your wrist.
The blue accents on the watch enhance its beauty and make it even more remarkable. The unidirectional ratcheting bezel is coin-edged with striking blue minute markers. The baton minute markers in the matte finish dial are blue at 3, 6, 9, and 12, while others are white, just like the sword-shaped minute and hour hands. The second hand is red, hence the overall color contrast of the watch is incredible.
The screw-down crown is also very uniquely designed and bears a Stuhrling logo. Inside the watch beats Japanese Quartz movement which is fairly accurate. For the price, this is by the best hybrid you can get of a sport and dress watch.
Stührling Original Aquadiver Regatta Espora 417.03
If you are not shy of receiving compliments, the Aquadiver Regatta Espora 417.03 will bag you praises from everyone. The sturdy looking stainless steel construction of the watch makes it look like it comes with a hefty price tag but you’ll be surprised at how low it costs. But that doesn’t mean it looks cheap – quite the opposite in fact.
The triple-link bracelet of the watch is made from stainless steel that is polished in the centre and brushed on either side. The bracelet has a fold-over push button clasp for added security. It gets better when you move to the sphere – a radiant blue unidirectional bezel with coin like edges displays minute markers while a textured screw-down crown sits at the 3’o clock position.
The dial, also radiant blue, has geometrical indices and a date window at the 3’o clock position, magnified by a Cyclops. All the markers and hands are luminescent. The dial is covered by Krysterna Crystal and decorated case at the back.
The color combination of blue and silver make the Aquadiver Regatta Espora 417.03 a very sharp looking watch that grabs attention from a distance. It is powered by Swiss Quartz movement and one buyer commented that it didn’t lose even one second in a week.
Stührling Original Aquadiver Manta Ray 718.02
One look at the watch and you will be in awe of its craftsmanship and design. The color, design, style – all elements are a combination of a diver’s style watch with a sporty look.
Unlike the models mentioned above, the bezel of the Aquadiver Manta Ray stands out as it is made from surgical quality steel and boasts milled and embossed Arabic numerals. The dial is also not a run-of-the-mill design but has a beautiful ribbed texture with luminous circle and baton markers. The minute and hour hands are also thicker than usual and coated with luminous paint. A square date window is situated at the 3’o clock position, adjacent to which is the smooth screw-down crown.
The dial is protected by Krysterna crystal dial window on the front and decorated case with a manta ray design at the back. A high-grade silicone rubber strap will wrap around your wrist smoothly and hold at a buckle closure. A Ronda 515 Swiss Quartz movement beats inside the Manta Ray.
Some might say that the watch is a little too big for its own good – but if you think you can pull it off, go for it!
