The Stuhrling Aviator follows a minimalistic but vibrant design and makes less to appear more! There's just something charming about reductivism that makes you prefer it than other watches in its category, especially among those available in black. Resilient, reliable, classy and easy-to-read, you get to trust its mettles once you take it out from the ordinary ways life flows.
It is very hard to pick a watch that would go well with any kind of semi-formal – or in that case, semi-informal – outfit. Then stays involved also the price factor; it is hard to come by a Swiss watch that sports a good design, quality materials and a quality build within the low price range. Then, it is the about the precision and reliability and lastly, the value for money. All these could sum up to force you into a dubious play but thanks to this enormous watch market that pieces like the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Regatta Swiss Quartz Camouflage Canvas 141C.02 Mens Watch exist.
The biggest USP of the c is its extremely well readability factor facilitated greatly by the dark grey and yellow colour combination of the dial – in fact, it's the brightest at the centre while kind of fading out smoothly as you shift your glance to the bezel, the case and finally, the strap. It all has a yellow – somewhere between bright and mildly-bright or maybe, pale – overtone to it while the grey case-coating maintains parity with the dark patches on the camo band.
The whole package looks very smart, with absolutely no weakness for complexities, which is its prime idea. Won't you like a person whose mere appearance is enough to cite him/her as intelligent instead of him/her flaunting it deliberately? This is the bright, modern version of that intelligence!
The case of the Stuhrling Original Aquadiver Swiss Quartz Camouflage Canvas 141C.02 Mens Watch is made from black-coated stainless steel measuring 43 millimetres across; 47mm with the well-notched, tapering-out crown. It stands at 10mm, top to bottom.
The gray dial is nothing that you may call extraordinary, except; perhaps the curved edges that tuck the Krysterna crystal in. But the layout gives it its magic! Starting from the minute and hourly markings to the hands that start grey but burst to yellow almost immediately, it is well rounded off with the tiny date-porthole.
It gives you a clear reading of the date but doesn't stand stark looking at your face all the time. Its littleness is easy enough to be ignored when you don't want it. It's safe enough to be carried 100 feet or a little more than that under water, but while you can take it to swimming and snorkelling, never try going SCUBA or anything more with it. There's no point in killing a beautiful watch!
