    In fact, I just realised, this watch will be the same thickness as my 300 MM !

    There's no way that can be a good fit for dress shirt cuffs.

    I think I have to keep looking.

    Just came across this thread after looking for more info in Stowa watches. Mike, you have written such an awesome review and posted such beautiful pictures that the 1938 Chrono is officially on my "To-get" list.

    Thank you, and keep up the great work.

    Excellent review Mike, you can get the "essence" of the Chrono 1938. :D
    One of Stowa's best watches and definetely one of the few contenders for my next watch.

    Just to follow up my concerns on its height - I now own the creme dial 1938 and its a perfect match to my dress shirts - I have largish wrists so smaller dress watches don't really do it for me and this one has plenty of heft. That said, it fits under a shirt cuff depending on the fit of the cuffs - I wear strictly french cuffs with chain linked cuff links so no problems - if you prefer a tighter fit, you will have problems.

    I second that, like the IWC Portuguese chrono.

    Great review and nice pics! My fiancé bought this watch for my wedding gift (I picked it out), thanks in part to this thread. Once she gives it to me I'll be happy to post a photo :)

    Kudos to Mike for the terrific original post. I recently ordered a cream dialled 1938 Chronograph when they were made available again and this review helped me make my decision. Mandatory reading for anyone considering ordering this watch.
