Stuhrling Original timepieces are attractively priced mechanical self-winding watches worn by discerning style-conscious men and women. The company traces its roots back to late 19th century Switzerland, and to master watchmaker Max Stuhrling, the protege of Louis Audemars (of Audemars Piguet). Stuhrling, despite his immense talents, was a man who eschewed luxury, and despite making wristwatches that cost several times the average man's salary, he endeavored to manufacture mechanical watches that would be affordable to most. By the mid twentieth century, the Stuhrling family had become engaged in other interests, but they never lost their forefather's love and respect for watchmaking. The 1990's surge in mechanical watchmaking popularity, led Max Stuhrling IV (great grandson of the founder), to re-establish the legacy of watchmaking excellence.
