    Antea Dial Variations

    I'm pretty sure I've seen several pictures of Antea's in which the arabic numerals are only placed on every other hour.

    All the Antea's I see on the web page have them on every hour. Can anyone tell me anything about this history?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    there have been many more versions of the 39 mm dial.
    Here are only three:




    ...and we are talking about non-date-dials only.

    This is an L.E. dial, only built in 25 pcs.:

    I believe Joerg once offered an Antea with roman numerals - but I didn't see one till today.


    History:
    Some years ago STOWA and NOMOS argued about that "Bauhaus" oriented design. They finally agreed on today's different versions for STOWA and NOMOS, AFAIK.

    Probably Mike can provide both of us with further details,

    I just found another one (different font of numerals - but with a date window):

    Well, it all started years ago with the Antea Museum Edition and a tiny handwinding ETA 2660 in it.





    Later the dial design changed as explained by Volker. The ETA 2824-2 bedcame the standard movement. However there have been numerous LE, here's just one with a hw Durowe:



    The most wonderful I have is this one (the first LE ever has been stolen):

    Kind regards

    Wow; that's tough for me. I like the dial with the skipped numerals much better. Having the twelve numerals, in line with radii in the face (as opposed to the vertical alignment of the Marine), just seems a little busy and/or disorienting. Does the agreement between Stowa and Nomos mean that it is unlikely that we'll see the skipped numerals configuration again?

    Very unlikely.
