Stuhrling chronograph watches are a great choice if you’re looking for something sporty without breaking the bank. The company has an interesting history – started in 1999 by Henry Fischer. His goal was to start a watch company that provided quality, luxury type watches at an affordable price. His research told him that the big name brands had to charge high prices due to celebrity endorsements and advertising. He went ahead with the Stuhrling brand – creating quality and affordable watches and no large advertising overhead – and sold 22,386 watches in the first year. The company continues making these high quality watches and today I want to show you some Stuhrling chronograph watches. Click on each picture for more information.
Stuhrling Original Chronograph – 678.01 Black and White –
Never mind what the MSRP says – this watch is under $100. At first glance it looks very black and white – but the detail I like – and makes this watch standout is the blue second hand and sub dial hands. It’s a detail like this that makes the watch special – and not just a generic watch. Also – this watch uses a 20 mm NATO style strap – so you can easily change it out for another color – look for a different strap here. This is a classic watch – to get one for yourself – click here.
Stuhrling Original Chronograph – 678.02 Blue and Orange –
You can have this watch for under $120. The colors on this watch are a little more bold but not too loud. The combination of orange and blue really goes well together and I like the mostly white face. The details that standout for me on this one are the blue sub dials with orange hands – and the orange second hand. All of these combine to show that Stuhrling Original really thought through the design of this watch. If orange and blue is for you – then click here.
Stuhrling Original Chronograph – 678.02 Black and Red –
This red and black model is under $130. This watch takes a slightly different approach by adding the gold tone color on the face. It works well – the red and black is offset nicely by the gold – and the red hands provide a nice touch. I think this watch would look great with a tan color NATO strap – or even a tan leather band – would give this watch an entirely different feel – it would be like having two different watches.

So what do you think about this watch? My favorite is the black and white one – with the touch of blue, that makes it for me. I think this watch has a lot of potential to be personalized with a different NATO strap – check out some others here.
