I have a few Stauers. I don't have your particular model, but I do know that it has a chinese made movement (not that there is anything wrong with that.) As long as you don't buy into their phony hype about Swiss heritage, you will be fine. You are getting an inexpensive watch at a fair price. Mine have held up just fine. I guess I did have a hand come loose on a Graves 33, but it was replaced under warranty.
