    Re: Which Chrono, need some feedback

    I really love the marine crono. Its clasic, sportive, elegant, have a lot of presence en the wrist. The silvered dial its amazing, the blue hands...And is important to me, a great legibility. I wearing with the brown cocro, but im waiting a dark blue too

    Would you get the automatic version or manual wind which is less thick I guess and the movement is nicer to see...?

    I always find that the 7753 rotor is making really too much noise while rotating...

    That's the "wobble"!.
    Love the wobbly sound when you give it a shake. The valjoux movement wouldn't be the same without the wobble

    I’m a lucky owner of different chronograph models from Stowa and I like them all. I spent approximately 60% wrist time on the marine, 30% on cream 1938 and 10% on the black one.

    I’d probably go with the black 1938. I dislike how many numerals are missing from the Marine model, it kind of clashes with the deck watch aesthetic for me. Good luck with whatever you choose I’m sure you’ll love it!

    I have the black 1938 as well as a few other Stowas. Can’t go wrong with any of them.

    Re: Which Chrono, need some feedback

    Thanks for the feedback everyone, very much appreciated. In the end, I had to make a tough decision and grabbed the Longines that I had been considering alongside the Stowa. Brand new Longines Master Collection Chronograph L27594783 for about half of what the Stowa would have cost. Considering I'd been torn between the two at similar prices this was too good to pass up. I've always wanted to try a column wheel chronograph as well.

    However, after some of the wrist shots and comments above I think long term there's a Stowa Marine Chrono in my future. Can't remember who asked it, but when it happens I'll definitely be picking up the manual wind model, no date.

    I did get some interesting feedback from Stowa on the manual wind versions of the marine chrono. Might be common knowledge here, but I assumed if you ordered a hand winder they based it on an existing manual wind movement with a few modifications. Turns out it's actually a Valjoux 7753 that's had the auto winding mechanism taken out and hand winding installed. Pretty interesting.

    I agree! Used to have a 7750 based Tissot and would sit at my desk wobbling my wrist just to hear the "zzzzzip". Gotta love it.

    Hi Mike,
    I have a second-hand 1938 black chorno incoming, do you think strapco super oyster would work? Thanks!
