Antea KS 41
At Baselworld STOWA presented a new Antea, the Ante KS 41. The line has been very popular in the past and the new Antea KS 41 pays tribute to those customers demanding as slightly larger Antea.
In order to answer this demand Jörg and his team created the new 41mm case which still is a typical Antea case (see lugs).
The Antea KS 41 will be equipped with an ETA/Unitas 6498 movement which already k´has proven to be a most reliable engine powering the Marine Original.
The new Antea KS 41 is classy and distinctive watch with a verly clear, uncluttered design, the simple typography of the dial is only added by a subtle STOWA Logo.
Thereby the printed "Made in Germany" can now be seen on another part of the watch. While designing the watch Jörg Schauer decided to abstain completely from the certificate of origin on the dial and achieved thus an optical balance.
