The actual structure of the watch is a stainless steel frame with the numbers milled into it.  This allows for high strength and durability, and somewhat ruggedness.    The watch does have depth resistance of 135 feet, but also has a leather watchband.  It is not good to get the band wet, so the water resistance is just in case it falls into the water.

A self-winding feature is great to eliminate the battery in the watch, as the person’s arm moves in a natural motion; the watch is being powered for constant use.  When the watch is not moving, it has been wound up so much that the power it created will sustain it overnight.  They are not the first people to use this feature, but it has become a standard one with analog watches.

Realistically, the watch has many of the same features as many other watches.  What sets this watch apart from many others is the craftsmanship that is maintained from the Stuhrling company.  With all of the Stuhrling skeleton watches they have the same basic form factor with different cosmetic features such as color, design, shape, and style.
