I'm a watch(mostly vintage) lover and enjoy reading discussion on this forum over one year. Especially, I enjoyed FO LE topics.
Now, as a potential STOWA owner who is on reservation list of Serial FO since last year, let me post some topics which I wanted to hear your opinions.
1. Movement finish
I noticed that width of Geneva stripe on FO movement is quite wider than that of MO.
This might be an idea of Mr. Schauer to make the movement looks closer to the original.
Then, why not apply the stripe in 45 degree angle against spring bar? By this way, the movement might look more authentic. please see attached picture for comparison.
2. Second hand.
I read some discussion on this forum regarding the thickness of luminous on the second hand. I agree, it looks more sharp or thin compared with historical pieces or current STOWA automatic models.
Another point I noticed is the length of unluminoused tail. It is somewhat short compared with historical pieces with same design(diamond end) or even shorter than that of current STOWA automatic models.
I appreciate the fact that the watch looks more modern or dressy as a result of modest tail length,but one of the distinctive characteristics of B-uhr might be missed.....
How is your thought?
