So, the Urban Gentry YouTube channel recently posted a review of the 36mm Marine Classic, with the hand-wound movement (2804-2). In it the presenter measures the thickness of the watch as "A little under 11mm". ( I can't link to it - insufficient posts - but it's about 14 minutes into the video ). I don't think this was user error with the calipers, though it is measuring to the top of the dome of the crystal.
However, I'd previously contacted Stowa to ask if the handwound Marine Classics were any thinner. I think I'd heard about the Flieger being thinner with a hand-wound movement, so I thought I'd ask. I had the following response:
"Kindly note the thickness of the Marine Klassik with the ETA 2804-2 is 9,2 mm. The thickness of the watch with hand winding movement is one mm flatter then the watch with automatic movement."
Therefore, I'm confused. Is this measurement error in the review? A watch with an incorrect case? Does anyone with one have any ideas on why this discrepancy?
I mean, 1mm difference in depth isn't a deal-breaker, but the thinner case would be a nice bonus.
