Anyone?

Trying to decide between buying an Airman or a Marine right now as my second Stowa, I've seen plenty of wrist shots of Airmans, but very few of the Marine. Anyone care to show a few?

Also, does the Marine have the same domed crystal as the Airman, and is there any AR coating on the crystal of either?

Hi Dave,

Sorry, no pics. I've had my Marine for nearly 1 and half years and it's one of my favourites. I wear it on a Stowa mesh which for me suits it perfectly.

The clean simple dial, blued hour/minute hands, case/bracelet quality and finish is excellent. Can't recommend it enough.

regards,
Gordon

I've got some crappy pics on my mobile, email me if you'd like em.

Got home to discover the courier had been. They don't deliver on Saturdays, and it was only a 30 mile drive, so like an impatient WIS I headed over there and now I've got this beauty attached to my wrist:





Very happy! :)

Dave,

Thats just a super,super watch only wear it in good health.:-!

Just one drawback for me (and comments invited) the Stowa brown strap i found a little "disapointing".

Thanks Martin!

Re the strap, I quite like it. It's a bit on the stiff side, but wears very comfortably. I also got the light brown strap (although I need to get hold of Jorg when he's back from holiday as he's sent me a regular length rather than a short), I think they rather suit the watch.

Mind you, I am going to look into getting an alligator or croc strap to go with the Marine because I think it would look good!

ETA 2824 movement, mine is so far within +1 per day (as is the Antea I bought a month or two back). Beautifully made watch, you'll love it! :-!

Congratulations, Dave! :-!

Case and crystal between the Flieger and trhe Marine are identical, with inside-only AR-coating. The Flieger case is satinized, the Marine polished.

I love the case design (definitely going to have to get an Airman sometime), wears beautifully. The slightly turned down lugs and narrow case sides/tallish bezel combine to make it wear extremely slimly.

Really loving this so far! Apart from wearing an Orange Monster to bed (for the lume) and for a cycle ride on Sunday, I haven't taken it off since I picked it up Friday evening.

That's the first time I have heard of someone else who has a "bed watch". I bought a Luminox 3000 specifically for that purpose: light as a feather, silky rubber strap. Can't tell it's there. It's a good back-up travel watch, and perfect for establishing the time when your bladder or your neighbor's infant woke you.

Yep, I often change to another watch to sleep to get better lume:oops:

I had a Marathon field watch with tritium tubes for a while as a night-watch, but these days I just switch to something with good lume and charge it up before turning out the light (the Orange Monster is a good one for this!).
