New Marine 36 roman handwound! From now on, the 36 mm handwound watch with small seconds is also available with a beautifully designed roman dial. We have already built some watches and ship them immediately after receiving the order.

Overall I like it, good job on the VI to keep it coherent. However, I don't like the small seconds cross without a surrounding circle. Feels as an afterthought. The arabic version is by far my favourite of the two.

Edit: thinking about it, I think a shadow small seconds like that on the Breguet 7147 would be the best option

Edit #2: yep this is it

I prefer the Arabic version as well, but this is also very nice.

Very nice! I actually like the cross, visually.
Still prefer the arabics, but a lot of people have been asking for a Roman version of this little gem!

Nice. Not usually a Roman Numerals fan, but it looks good with this dial.

Beautiful watch! I have to say Stowa doesn't come to mind when I think of a dress watch if I am puchasing a Stowa I am purchasing a traditional Flieger.

Now's your chance, they have a limited run Flieger going on right now that is pretty catching. Just a little to high for my budget.

Ooh looks much better with the blue than with the orange.

Anyway on topic: at first I was like "whyyyy the crosshair!?" But I'm starting to like it. This will 100% be my next buy. Probably on the mesh and I'll buy a strap from colareb or something. Really, like REALLY wish it had the old logo tough. Other than that I love it.

The FP Journe has an aesthetic flow to the numbers. The Stowa's "6" is abrupt. With the small Peseux they needed to bridge the gap somehow. Would've preferred a cut-off but right sized "6".

Had a try at it

I like the look of the small seconds dial. Adds some nice depth.

Nice one, but on a second look the dwarfed "6" is odd to me. YMMV...


Charlie
That's what I thought at first though it's kinda growing on me. I'm still not sure I would prefer it over a cut off VI.

I just got a Marine Classic 36 roman auto in an m2m sale. Now I want this with sub seconds! I feel like the cross goes well with the roman face. (I also love the Arabic numerals too but I've had a MOLE I for a long time that I am now selling and felt like a change.)
