Hello. I've been reading and watching pictures and videos about the Stowa Marine Classic and I'm about getting one. The thing is that there are so many variants to choose, that I'm all a mess
My first idea was the 40mm with arabic numbers, date and Top 2824-2 movement. Then I started thinking about getting the manual wind movement, as I don't have any in my collection. I had a Speedmaster double sapphire glass and it wasn't very comfortalbe to wind it. I also missed many times the date in that watch. It seems that the Marine crown is quite more comfortable to use than the Speedmaster one, so I'm almost decided to try the manual movement.
Now I'm with the size too. I have thin wrists: 6.3". My usual watch sizes is between 40 and 42mm, so 40mm appeared fine to me. But I see many pictures with 36mm and it looks bigger. Maybe the white dial bazeless combo makes that effect, but I'm not sure. I'm wearing right now a Hamilton Khaki Field 42mm with black dial. I guess it's a quite similar case design. I noticed it has different hands design too.
Any advise? I now it's something very personal, but may be reading others opinions may help.
