The first pure mechanical watch in Stuhrling Original's history, the Men's Special Reserve Chernabog Skeleton Automatic Watch is an ideal choice for collectors and those with discerning tastes. This stunning timepiece does not have a rotor attached to the movement, so you must manually window the crown to keep it running, a design that puts you in touch with the artistry and precision of automatic movement. Its remarkable 17-jewel mechanical engine can hold 40 hours of power reserve on its ample mainspring, while a rose gold-tone tonneau-case with exhibition back lends durability. Black Arabic numerals on a skeletonized dial combine with a genuine leather strap for a sleek, yet laidback look, and a Krysterna crystal guards against wear and tear. Water resistant to 165 feet, the Chernabog arrives in a distinctive Stuhrling presentation box with instruction manual, and cleaning cloth.
Chernabog is a fictional character who appears in the Night on Bald Mountain segment of Walt Disney s Fantasia (1940). He is considered among the most visually impressive characters appearing in Disney s films. And now Stuhrling Original offers one of its most visually impressive timepieces of all time...the Chernabog!.

Like its namesake this Chernabog features its own bald mountain. Through the mountainous curved Krysterna crystal one can plainly see all the inter-workings of the movement as it is completely exposed. There is no dial. The steadfast movement has been exceedingly skeletonized and decorated brilliantly with hand-engraved scrollwork on whatever remaining surface areas exist. Looking like a creature right out of 1940 this mechanical movement (Stuhrling caliber ST-90911) is the type and size that was used in pocket watches of that era. And if you think Chernabog is memorable from the front just flip it over and take a look from the back! The view from behind through the Krysterna crystal in the screwed in exhibition case-back is truly majestic; laced with scrollwork and dotted by blued steel screws and ruby jewels. The spirit of Chernabog is reflected in its considerable case. The liberal tonneau-shaped housing is cut from solid 316L surgical-grade stainless steel and measures a whopping fifty millimeters from ten to four. However size alone does not define this devil. Wearing a satin finish on the top and sides of the case with contrasting high-polish beveled edges (that really
