    How silver is the Antea Klassik 41silver?

    In every picture I've seen, the dial looks white. But Stowa describes it as "silver coated." How apparent is the silver coating in real life? Does it have a metallic or glittery effect at all? I'm hoping it essentially just looks "white."


    Either way, this will probably be my next Stowa purchase. Feel free to share your thoughts and pictures. There's plenty out there of the smaller Anteas, but not as many of big brother.

    It does not look white - depends on the ambient light actually. The color ranges from a warm cream/ gold tone, to a stark light silver.
    It also has a subtle shimmer that is hard to describe. This is based on my ownership of a Stowa Antea ks

    Interesting. Thanks for the reply. How do you like the dial color and finish? Do you ever find yourself wishing it was simply white, or are you happy with it as is?

    I prefer the silver finish. Since it is such a simple, minimal watch. The silver dial and blued hands add some dimension and visual interest the watch. It's a very nuanced watch and it takes time to really notice and appreciate the subtle detail of it's design. It really must be seen to be appreciated. If you have a nomos retailer close by, I check out a Tangente to see what the silver dial of this style of watch looks like,

    How do you feel about the versatility of the Stowa Antea in terms of wearing it more casually? I know some consider it a "dress" watch, but does it pair well with say jeans and a polo or t-shirt?

    Absolutely. 1000 of Antea wrist shots/pics on the www are proof enough I guess.
