This has been an amazing summer for Stowas. This newest arrival is really quite extraordinary...I asked for a green sweep and am so pleased with the final result. This is a very different design compared to the traditional ones that Stowa is famous for, and I am sure there will be those who don't care for it. But, I have to say, this is an intriguing design direction and one of the first truly "modern" designs that has really resonated with me. The concept of flowing time is definitely embodied in the increasing size of the indices. The stark layout is very appealing and to my eyes, more interesting that some of the other fine German makers who have explored these type of modern looks. I was also extremely happy to discover that the indices and hands are lumed with a high quality blue on this black dial version, and the watch is easily legible in the wee hours with dark adjusted eyes. Fantastic piece all around.
