    My new Partitio handwinder just hit my desk! Now my automatic has a sibling.

    These really are beautiful watches. Photos don't do them justice.

    Agree. Have to handle them for full appreciation IMO. I’ve been so happy with mine I’ve completely stopped looking at other watches! The Partitio is my everyday watch, and I have a Scurfa for when things get rough. Can’t believe I’m satisfied with just 2 watches. ;)

    I’ve been experimenting with different straps on the Stowa and everything I’ve tried has worked well. It’s a versatile piece—on a slightly casual leather strap it’s perfect for my business casual office. On the weekends I like it on a Perlon. I also put it on a dressy leather strap for a wedding this past weekend and it worked very well. I don’t think it works for the most formal attire, but for everything else it’s great. Which, for my life, means I can wear it almost all of the time!

    Thanks! Can’t tell from the photo but the strap matches my shoes perfectly. Took me a loooong time to finally find an exact match. This one is a Hirsch Kent. Very pleased with it so far. We’ll see how it breaks in.

    So as the title states, I’m very close to pulling the trigger on a new Partitio (finally!!). I’ve been wanting one for a while now and I’ve had my sights set on the hand winding white dial with red seconds. I was drawn to the hand wind version because I don’t have one, however, at this eleventh hour I’ve started to second guess whether I should get the hand wind or the automatic. The fact that the hand wind comes with a display back isn’t a deciding factor for me (I actually think the solid back looks nice), but I do like the idea of a hand wind watch.

    I have a small collection (Seiko diver, Tissot Visodate, and an older Seiko flighty), and I intend to wear the watch in the office on semi-casual days, and then on the weekends/evenings, splitting time with the diver and flighty (i.e. this won’t be an everyday piece). Considering this, would I be better off getting the auto over the hand wind, or should I stick with the hand wind version as initially planned?

    I realize this is ultimately subjective, but I thought I’d get some input from owners before making the plunge. Thanks for any and all advice!!
    I would go for the hand winder - these type of watches are pretty rare and it's good to have a hand winding watch in your collection.
