Stuhrling Original Men’s 175B.331575 Octane Concorso Cabriolet Automatic Date Black Watch

Stuhrling Original

The Concorso D’Villa’s sporty design is inspired by the instruments found in a racecar. The bold, individually applied Arabic numerals and baton-style indices are filled with Luminova, allowing them to stand bold against the black, record-finish dial. The minutes track is brilliantly colored to denote each execution. Don’t let is high-octane personality fool you; the Concorso D’Villa is powered by the ST-90816 mechanical automatic movement. It is finished  off with a genuine leather strap with contrast stitching.

Krysterna Crystals

Krysterna is proprietary to Stührling Original and refers to the crystals that are used in its timepieces. Krysterna stems from the eyewear industry and has more strength over a spread surface area than sapphire. Krysterna crystals are more scratch resistant than mineral crystals and more shatter resistant than sapphire crystals.

The Concorso Family is part of the Octane Collection, a series of watches made for those with a strong competitive spirit and a need for speed. These timepieces are inspired by high octane competitive races. The dials and numerals are inspired by the instruments found in racecars.

Summary of Features

• Movement: Manual/Self-Winding Automatic Movement

Automatic watches do not operate on batteries. Automatic watches are made up of about 130 or more parts that work together to tell time. Automatic movements mark the passage of time by a series of gear mechanisms, and are wound by the movement of your wrist as you wear it. The gear train then transmits the power to the escapement, which distributes the impulses, turning the balance wheel. The balance wheel is the time regulating organ of a mechanical watch, which vibrates on a spiral hairspring. Lengthening or shortening the balance spring makes the balance wheel go faster or slower to advance or retard the watch. The travel of the balance wheel from one extreme to the other and back again is called oscillation. Lastly, automatic movements come in different types, including movements that are Swiss-made, Japanese-made, and more.

Also referred to as self-winding, watches with automatic movements utilize kinetic energy, the swinging of your arm, to provide energy to an oscillating rotor to keep the watch ticking. They’re considered more satisfying to watch collectors (horologists) because of the engineering artistry that goes into the hundreds of parts that make up the movement. If you do not wear an automatic watch consistently (for about 8 to 12 hours a day), you can keep the watch powered with a watch winder (a great gift for collectors).

  1. I have owned this watch now for about a month. I own quite a few automatic watches including a number of Swiss models so probably have higher expectations about accuracy than this watch can deliver. It consistently gained about 90 seconds a day which I think is pretty poor even for a Chinese movement and does not reflect too well on quality control. I have adjusted the regulator and it is now gaining about 25 seconds a day which is not too bad. The watch is quite well made, has a reasonable…
