    Been sucked into the Stowa world

    I have been lurking around WUS for a for a few months and have finally decided to go for a Stowa 365 (maybe with a dark brown croc strap).

    So unless one shows up for sale in the next week or so ... off to the Stow shop it is.

    It has been an interesting education. I came to this purchase with some assumptions and I feel more informed in some ways, but also more cautious in others.

    I am part-thrilled about this planned first "proper" purchase and part-concerned that I haven't even purchased it yet and am already thinking crap like "hmmm the Stowa is great for my everyday work use since I wear a suit, but I need a weekend watch ... that Damasko DA36 looks quite nice ... oh wait there's a DA56 on sale ... since I will need something anyway if the price is right ...".

    Not good. I feel a strange desire to ... buy ... many ... watches ... can't stop .... Help me ....

    Welcome to the sickness that is watch collecting.


    I have an Antea KS that should be ready to ship in about 3 weeks, I am also on the waiting list for the FO.

    Not to mention that with the next decent sized pay out from a poker tournament that I get I will probably get either an Omega PO or Speedmaster.

    yep, it is a sick, sick habit. But as I tell my wife: "Hey, at least I'm not addicted to hookers!"

    Welcome to this horological madness. It starts that way, then gets even more interesting. We are here to help you every step of the way. ..;>)

    Choosing a Stowa is a good idea.

    I am confident (fingers, toes and other appendages crossed) that I will stop at the Stowa 365 and the Damasko DA36 as my alternating watches! I intend to get lots of use out of any watch(es) I buy ... and not having much disposable income should help.

    Being too lazy to flip will be huge advantage as well ....

    PS ... if you do want to "help" me, do feel free to draw may attention to any DA36 on sale.

    I thought you might be trying to get me to reconsider my future DA36 by posting the picture of that gorgeous Sinn by the river ... but I am firm.
