    Has there ever been a mechanical Marine that looks like the MA not MO?

    I like the look of the Marine Auto more than the Marine Original; I like the long sweeping second hand and date at the 6.

    Has this style ever been made in a mechanical movement? Just deciding if I should buy the Marine Auto, or wait for a limited issue, sweeping second hand, date at the 6, mechanical movement.

    Sorry but both movements are mechanical:

    MA = auto
    MO = hw.




    You may read my review in the MA here on WUS to get more information. For your convenience:

    Since 2002 there have been some different models of the Marine. Even a “Marine Damen” (Ladies Marine) was part of the Marine collection. The “Marine Damen” was equipped with an ETA 2824-2, the diameter of the 316L stainless steel case was 31mm. The hands have been coated in black.

    The 2002 catalogue (which was a 2 page folder to be more precise) also contained a “Marine 6425 limitiert”. This STOWA Marine was limited to 200 pieces. The 40mm polished stainless steel case housed an Unitas 6425 handwinding movement (“Kleine Sekunde” - small second at 6). The sapphire crystal was slighly domed, the hands have been blued (thermic process). This extraordinary limited edition retailed for 1699,-- Euro (1799,-- Euro on bracelet).
    And last not least there has been the (legendary) Bi-Compax Marine Chrono, an absolute beater in my humble opinion. Case size was 40mm too, hands have been blued, top and display back crystals have been made of sapphire. In 2002 the chrono retailed for 1399,-- Euro.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I meant "hand winding" not "mechanical."

    Has there ever been a handwinding Marine, with a date at the 6 and sweeping second hand?

    I will admit that I like the looks of the MA more with the date though I ultimately chose the MO for its handwind movement.
