    Just got my first Stowa this week and I love it, completely blown away by the quality and value for money!

    I’ve been wanting a white dial pilot or field watch for a while now but I’d ruled out Stowa’s white flieger because I didn’t really like the lumed second hand... so when I saw the white and blue limited edition on their Instagram I went for it!!

    Having gone in to an IWC dealer recently to check out their white Mark XVIII I reckon the Stowa compares very favourably at a much lower price point. It even beats out the IWC in a couple of places... the blued hands are sensational (you all know the deal - generally black but a bright blue pop of colour in the right light) and the date placement at 6 is much better than the Mark XVIII which is slightly too close to centre (which is a bit of an oversight on a watch at that price point). I must admit I’d slightly prefer it if the Stowa’s numerals were black instead of lumed, but this way it looks cool in the dark as well!

    Beautiful choice and quite an elegant one ... now with your Tuna it's the beauty and the beast.

    I must say, I really like this one because it's so restrained and simple-functional, but the gorgeous blue-hands give a noble pop against that muted, ghost-like white dial. Very nice!

    Congratulations, my friend!

    Cu & Cheers!

    Thanks guys!

    It feels quite restrained on the black Stowa strap (which is really nice and supple), but I reckon this will also be awesome on a brown Horween leather strap or a dark grey nato strap

    Dark grey NATO would look fantastic, I think
