    Airman automatic date V.S Marine Original romeon black

    It's me again
    I am still thinking which one for me is more suitable
    If I take the chance of Airman auto date,
    I will add COSC, one more strap and buckle, it will cost me arround euro$ 748 included shipping cost.

    But, if i take the chance of marine original romeon black, it will cost me arround $100 more.

    does anyone can help me
    I love both, but now i cant take both

    may i hv some comparison between them?
    e.g COSC movement V.S Unitas 6498 movement (swan neck regulator)
    many thanks

    Unfortunately I doubt we can

    Like apples and oranges are both fruit - both your choices are Stowa watches but there the similarities end.

    Different movements, different sizes, different styles ???

    How can we choose what you like?
    We all have our own personal preferences but they are individual to us.

    For example
    I have both the Stowa 2801 LE and a serial MO.
    I also have two other Flieger style watches, so I obviously like that design... but actually, despite owning only one 'marine' style - I prefer my MO... Watch collecting defies logic .

    I have plenty of black dialed watches including the fore mentioned Airman's but I'm not that keen on the black MO. Go figure.

    Follow your heart, not other peoples' preferences.

    Antea Creme COSC (No Date - Blued Hands)

    Flieger 2801 LE

    Marine 2801 HW
    Marine Original

    Seatime Blue (ProDiver Bezel)
    Seatime WUS LE
    70's Quartz,
    Vintage PUW

    It comes near to personal preferences imho.

    A lot of guys don`t like hw movements and the early morning fuss to wind it up. Others do like hw movements especilly because of that and the "engine" of the Marine Original is an excellent example why some of us do like these movements a lot. The Unitas with swan neck fine adjustment is an absolut eye-catcher, the ETA 2824-2 imho - even in the COSC version/decorartion - is not (in direct comparison).

    Flieger Auto and MO both fit with casual and business dresses so this should be no issue at all.

    So if winding up your watch daily is not a deal breaker I'd gor for the MO.

    Here's my view of the watches and why I will likely, at some point, own both:

    SPORT <--------Airman-----+------MO--------->DRESS

    This is also enhanced by the strap options that come with the watches.

    I like HW movements, not only the morning ritual, but also since they allow for a mechanical movement that's thinner.

    I currently have the Airman Date and it gets a lot of wrist time!

    I was going to buy an Airman without logo COSC but in the last minute (I had already placed the order and the watch was packed) I changed my mind and bought a Marine Original (Arabic).

    I'd go for the MO, the hand winding Unitas 6498 movement is more beautiful than an automatic 2824-2.
