As a fan of Stuhrling watches, I was excited to try the Stuhrling Original Men’s 803.03 Monaco Analog Watch. It retains the powerful, manly design elements from the company’s other watches I’ve tried, but changes up some of those other paradigms by taking inspiration from the type of style you’d find in the 1940s through 1960s. It even utilizes a classic font, which, pardon the pun, enhances its timeless look.
The stainless steel, round case with chunky buttons is set off against a simple brown leather strap. Rose-tone dials with chronograph (an independent sweep second hand) and date window round out the look. As expected for a battery powered watch of this quality, it’s water resistant up to 165 feet, although you’ll want to take care with exposing the leather strap to too much water.
If you want a high quality watch that makes a true fashion statement, then it’s hard to go wrong with the Monaco 803.3. If you like the design but would prefer this in a different color scheme, three other 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. Whichever variation you choose, this is a design that is sure to impress.
Thanks to Sturhling Original for the review unit.
