If you’re in the market for a men’s statement watch, the Stuhrling Original Men’s 657.01 Delphi Automatic Dual Display Watch delivers. The Delphi 657.01 is oversized and thick, yet still elegant in design. The transparent face on the silver-toned, stainless steel round case lets you see the watch’s inner workings, which are set off by rich accents (two other tone and color options are available in this model at different price points, which you can see under “Customers Also Shopped For” in the middle of the Amazon page). A similarly transparent rear lets you see how the watch functions from that angle, which is naturally only when it’s taken off your wrist.
As the “Automatic” in the name suggests, this watch features a mainspring that is wound automatically from the natural motion of your arm. If worn daily, this means your watch will never need winding or any other energy source. Of course, you can also manually wind the spring. Water resistance up to 165 feet means you never have to take the watch off, although you might want to take care with the 24mm wide alligator-embossed black leather strap with buckle clasp.
A large crown lets you set either of the dual time faces, one on the main part of the watch and the other in a smaller, secondary window. Elegant sun and moon icons indicate AM or PM, respectively. As you can see from the photos, the silver, blue, and gold coloring as seen through the Krysterna Crystal dial window and set against the black band make for a striking appearance. This is the type of watch you’ll be proud to own.
