    help with stowa seatime

    hi guys, i'm a newbieto this forum. i am very interested in the stowa seatime and was wondering if anyone had any input on the stem and crown on the watch. when the crown is unscrewed is there and give? or is it pretty solid. i haev a few sinns and the stem/crown feel very solid as a comparison i suppose. on the other hand i havea limes 1tausend and the stem and crown just dont feel as solid when unscrewed. appreciate any feedback!! looks like a killer watch.

    I can't help you with the Seatime, but I just bought a Prodiver, and I am very impressed with it. It's built like a tank. The crown doesn't wiggle at all when it's unscrewed, feels very solid, as does the rest of the watch. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the watch. The Prodvier will go right in the rotation with my IWC and Omega. the quality of this watch is very good. I can't imagine that you'll be disappointed.

    The crown, tube and case are identical...

    between the Prodiver and the Seatime. I own one of each and the crowns feel pretty solid, just like they do on all of my ETA 2824-2 powered watches. I wear both of my Stowas in rotation with some far more expensive watches and they fit right in.

    I have several Stowas and several Sinns, and if you like one, you would likely be happy with the other also.

    My Seatime is a tank, crown is solid, and it gets regular wrist time as part of the rotation. This is not a fragile watch, and wears a bit bigger than it's specs.

    Terrific legibility and also keep great time. Oh, and the lume rocks too.

    wow! beautiful pictures, thanks to all for the information. a doxa sub1000t has caught my eyes now, sooooo many nive watches out there i dont have. what's a man to do?? the guys at doxa claim the summer special could drop without notice so i'm really tempted to pick up a 1000t.

    I don't really like the Doxa design. Very dated IMO, and the bracelet/lug width is too small relative to the case size.

    While I am a big Stowa fan, I also love Doxa.

    The 1000T is going to be a bit smaller than the Seatime. Both can be found with some regularity on the Sales Forums.

    Tough call, but at the end of the day you have to consider what you want to look at everyday.

    how do you rate the doxa, in terms of build quality? for better or worse i find myself comparing everything to my Sinn's...they just seem so well built, start to finish. the doxa 1000t was like a train wreck to me, i just couldnt stop coming back to the pics...and now i find myself clammering for one.

    Re: help with stowa seatime

    I have a Seatime and several Sinns, the Stowa is every bit as well made as the Sinns. The Seatime is a superb watch, I've got it on today after a few days with my U1 and am enjoying it very much.
