So, I am in the market for a new watch :) So that is always a good time. I have recently been smitten (or should I say bitten) by the Stowa bug. I just now do not know what some people's experiences are with these versions?

And also, I am curious if there are any other companies that I might not be aware of that have a similar design? I just want to be sure to cover all of my bases.

Well, here is what I do have in mind:

Stowa Marine Original



Stowa Marine Original Roman



But...then I see the BLACK versions...oh...what to do?

Stowa Marine Original Black

There are other companies offering similar designs, but few that will give as good value for money as the Stowa MO: proper blued (not painted) hands, nicely decorated Unitas 6498 movement with cotes de Geneve, blued screws, screw balance, and swan neck fine regulation. Which model you choose is of personal preference. If you feel historical connection is of significance you might consider the initial version with white dial and arabic numbers as this one is a direct hommage to Stowa's own deck watches from the WW2 era.

Stowa MO LE with white porcelain dial. I had the Arabic regular MO and it IS fantastic bargain of a watch.. It got my friend impressed (he was not impressed with my Rolex).

LE model is very rare though, but it pops up around 1 time per year on TZ.

I am saving up for one and next time it pops up, it will be mine (can not buy one new). :)
