    Help me choose, Stowa edition!

    Hey all, so after a few years of saving up my credit card's cash back I have saved enough to fund a new watch purchase. I've known for a while that I want my next watch to be German made and after debating between Archimede, Sinn and Stowa I've settled on Stowa. My main stipulations are for it to be hand wound, white dialed and smaller than 38mm. I have narrowed it down to the Stowa Partitio white dial and the new Stowa Marine 36. I'm having the hardest time deciding between the two, I feel like they are equally matched and I would love some input to help me decide which direction to move in.

    Appeals of the Partitio over the Marine 36
    • Lovely lumed hands and numbers
    • Domed sapphire
    • More versatile/sporty (subjective)


    Appeals of the Marine 36 over the Partitio
    • Heat blued hands
    • Glossy enameled dial
    • Smaller case size and lug to lug
    • Slightly cheaper


    Their different features appeal to me equally and so the 2 are somewhat deadlocked to me. In a perfect world I would have both but since I can only afford 1 right now this has become a very difficult decision. Any input here would be greatly appreciated, TIA!

    I would choose Partitio over Marine 36
    with this reason.

    Partitio Klassik 37mm offered with "the Old Stowa logo"


    PS: Marine is such a great model too, but I went for the Unitas Marine Original Silver Dial.
    here are some of my stowa collection with the old logo

    good luck ;)

    Yup, Partitio.

    Lumed watch is much more useful on a daily basis.

    You can’t go wrong either way. Two superb watches. Buy what makes your heart sing. My Partitio does that for me

    I chose the Marine. I don’t like the lugs on the Partitio or the larger size. The white dial on the Marine looks enamels also and those blued hands are awesome. Lume doesn’t matter to me so that wasn’t a factor
    My collection changes so often I got tired of redoing my signature

    I might be in the minority but I actually like the new logo . Also, those are some great looking Stowas! I hadn't really considered the black dial Partitio but man it looks great on that strap.

    I do really enjoy good lume. I hadn't considered this but it is a great point and I think exactly what I needed to tip the scales. Thank you!
