Jul 17th 2009 9:05PM I have owned a Stauer watch ( the "Graves" ) for over a year and it has worked flawlessly. I own more watches than I need and this has been one of the very best. It is also the best value in a watch that I have ever bought. I never wind it, and never set it except when daylight saving time changes to standard. I don't know where the adverse commentary seen above is coming from and would disregard it. If mine gets lost or stolen I will be very quick to replace it.
