Aphrodite the goddess of love romance and passion has inspired mankind to create beautiful works of art architecture and poetry in her name. She has also inspired Stuhrling Original to create the Aphrodite Delight. The latest addition to the Romance Collection this timepiece captures the very essence of what its namesake was all about: beauty affection and of course intricate complexity. The Aphrodite Delight combines fashion with expert craftsmanship; this is a mechanical automatic timepiece and these kinds of complications are a recent development in women s fashion. That being said Stuhrling took it a step farther and made this Aphrodite a skeletonized automatic watch where the cut out that reveals the movement the heart and soul of every timepiece is in the shape of a heart! All around the heart are 36 genuine Swarovski crystals each accented to match the corresponding executions an extra touch of class elegance and beauty. As an addition artistic touch the crown was placed at 4 o clock instead of the traditional 3 o clock position. The Aprhodite Delight is protected by a domed Krysterna crystal and comes set in a satin twill covered genuine leather strap with padded water repellant liners. The strap like the crystals is color-coordinated to match each execution and comes with quick release pins for easy removal and replacement which allows you to change the style and personality of this watch.

The Greek Goddess of Love is Aphrodite. Following in the footsteps of the Venus and Cupid from Stührling Original’s Love Series, the Aphrodite timepiece honors the legendary symbol of love that it has been named for. Like Venus, the Aphrodite is dressed elegantly…only this Goddess is not quite as showy. While Venus is all dressed up and ready to go out on the town with nearly a full carat of diamond frosting on its bezel, Aphrodite’s dial is adorned with thirty six swarovski crystals, interspersed with silver beading serving as a sparkling border for the heart-shaped opening in its dial! Featuring a skeletonized and hand-engraved 20-jewel mechanical automatic movement, the core of this series is marked by a gorgeous skeletonized face which has been etched with hearts contributing to the love motif of this series. The large heart-shaped cut-out of the dial is the calling card of the Love Series for Venus, Cupid and now Aphrodite. Beaming right through the heart and the domed Krysterna™ crystal, is the magnificently skeletonized and hand engraved mechanical self winding movement beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour for all to see! The Love Series offers an amazing blend of beauty and technical achievement in timepieces for women. A mechanical automatic timepiece makes a bold statement for women who want to be taken seriously, whether in the business world or even on the social scene. The Venus, Cupid and/or Aphrodite are testament to that philosophy without sacrificing beauty and style. These symbols of love and beauty are all dressed up in their elegant genuine leather strap cloaked so decadently in its color coordinated fine satin twill. But beauty for these iconic symbols of love is not merely skin deep, it runs right through to the bone. Turn these timepieces over and have a look at the backside and enjoy the view. Through the Krysterna™ crystal encased in the screw-in exhibition case back, you will see the reverse side of the brain skeletonized and decorated brilliantly with hand engraving and accented by blued steel screws. Elegant fashion accessories as well as serious timepieces for the ladies, Stührling Original’s Venus, Cupid and Aphrodite are a perfect blend of aesthetics and technology. When it comes to matters of the heart, Venus, Cupid, and Aphrodite are all business!
