    Agreed, but only because I don't like plain fliegers

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    Stowa for sure. Less busy, and thus more versatile, looking. Just look at that Steinhart....can you find the date window with just a casual glance? Even among chronos, I don't know that I've seen a more cluttered watch dial. I like the black casing though. Steinhart can't possibly be the only maker having one. Plus, since you are considering a non-chrono, it's pretty clear that you don't have to have a chrono, so I'd suggest seeking a different one or just going with the Stowa. Not much point in paying for pricey complications that one doesn't need, and that make the watch look a mess.

    As long as you are considering Stowa, you may also want to consider Nomos' Club watch. I feel it has a nicer movement inside and that the dial captures that field watch/officer's watch look, but with a bit more refinement than does the Stowa. It's available as a manual or automatic winding watch.


    All the best.

    Q: Which of those two watches would I get?
    A: I don't find either watch attractive so the answer is neither one.

    If you are looking for help finding a watch give some of the features you like and dislike.

    Stowa because I just do not like coated watches. Now, if it was all ceramic black case, then I will re-consider though that dial is VERY cluttered.
