    Got my Antea KS!

    I'm extremely pleased! Thank you everyone at Stowa! :gold

    Great service and prompt emails from Regine Schauer made it another pleasurable Stowa buying experience.

    This is my first watch with the Peseux 7001 calibre. If anyone could answer a couple of question on the movement it would be much appreciated ...

    - I know the Peseux 7001 does not hack as standard, is it OK to use slight back pressure on the crown to stall/stop the second hand with this movement when time setting, as I do with my Seikos and Speedmaster?

    - I also noticed that when setting the time, as I was turning the hands clockwise, the hour hand doesn't move smoothly but kind of stutters and skips in small jumps. Is this a characteristic of the movement?

    I have the KS on the Milanaise bracelet which was adjusted at Stowa for me. And it's a perfect fit! With the added bonus of no scratches on the bracelet, which would most certainly have been the case if I had sized it myself

    To anyone else with a 7inch (or there abouts) wrist who has been worried about the size of the Antea KS, I personally say this suits my wrist better than my larger Antea LE (ETA 2660), the large dial area and lug design make this watch wear much bigger than it is.

    Again, thanks to all for your pictures and advice previously :thanks

    regards,
    Gordon

    Ho Gordon,

    Congrats with your latest purchase. Can´t answer your question

    because the only Peseux 7001 I own is cased into a Nomos. The Nomos h-hand works smoothly as the minute hands does.

    Congrats on the new Stowa. That model always appealed to me but I was concerned about the small size. I am glad to hear it wears bigger than it looks. Please post some pics when you get a chance!!

    Only camera phone pics ....

    Sorry for the [email protected]@py pics guys, I've only got my nokia 6230 at the moment, but i think they give a good idea of how the KS looks on a 7" wrist. The bracelet with just one removeable link left is a perfect fit...
