I spoke with Stowa customer service and they told me the same thing. I told her that I didnt mind that since I had other watches with black hands and dials. She said she would check with Mr. Schauer but I had to wait a week since he is at Basel. Im still hopeful that they will be able to do it.I have asked before, but mine was Antea KS, and the customer service said
"The watch is with black dial and you can not see the blued hands....."
so i can't get it and finally get the original one.
