~ A friend in southwestern Germany contacted me asking about the marks on the case at the 11 o'clock position.

That's my careless preparation. It's a fingerprint smear which should've been wiped off.

New to watch photography, everything at the point is seat-of-the-pants, trial and error experimentation.

With each image it becomes clearer what needs to be done in order to make a decent watch image.

Those with years of experience who post terrific watch images in the “Who else is wearing a Stowa today?” thread set a high standard.

It's great fun learning, as these two watches are such accommodating models for the lens.

~ A third STOWA watch arrived this afternoon, weeks earlier than expected.

The Flieger Classic 36 far exceeded my expectations in every respect.

This week saw me go from zero to three STOWA watches within five days.

That the Flieger arrived on Friday is apropos.

Hah, tempus fugit, very clever! Congrats. What an amazing week this must have been for you!

Edit: Tom, that 149 is tempting me to buy one with a flex nib from Fritz Schimpf...they have it on stock...

Congratulations Tom!

3 Stowa watches in a week..... I bet you will have a hard time deciding which to to wear.

I am certain that you will definitely enjoy your new pieces. Perhaps you can check out their Marine watches

Wear in good health.

Mine says hi.
