    Confused for my 1st Stowa

    Hi there,

    Anybody can help to decide between antea creme and marine automatic?

    What is the main difference (beside almost Euro 200 price) between those two?

    Thanks a lot...
    Best Regards,

    The difference...well, design and personal preference, I suppose.

    Otherwise, two totally different watches with the same engine.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures.....

    I am still undecided though....

    Is the marine is more versatile (let say can be used for jeans) than the antea?

    Is 1mm size different matter a lot?

    Thanks a lot....
    Best Regards,

    I would think so, but it's really up to you on what you think you should wear with your watch. The Antea is great value but if money is no concern than I would personally pick the Marine.

    i personally think the marine is a bit more versatile....you can change the straps and it will alter the look of the watch quite a bit.

    I think the Antea is more versatile. I am an odd duck for this forum as I do not find the Marine appealing. The hands are too fancy for my simple taste.

    You'll have a nice watch whichever way you go.

    Post pics after you buy.

    Each of Stowa's designs is unique in their own way. these two models are equally versitle. I own a Marine auto and like it very much. However I feel that the Antea is a more unique looking design that not many other peopl will have. The Marine auto is a well made, great looking watch, but its design features, such as case and dial, are typical of many watches.

    not a fan of the lugs on the antea. i'd go marine auto. i feel like you can dress the marine up but you cant dress the antea down. just my 2 cents.
