    I got "cremed" by Stowa team (unveiling of new arrival)

    Relax guys, I assure you my heading wasn't indecent. :)

    I got this for the missus' birthday at the end of May.

    Please pardon my horrible pics from phone and cheapo camera.

    Here's the story:

    Fedex parcel


    Opens up to reveal a white box with lid:


    And later an aluminium box:


    TADAAA! Creme me!



    It's a very nice watch. The lady is very happy with her birthday gift although it missed the actual day by a week. I ordered in Oct2010 knowing that delivery was in late May2011. Oh well, as long as she's happy!



    The Antea Creme has a such a simple and clean face. No elaborate chapter rings and a thin bezel.



    The caseback showing the 2824-2. Blue screws and signed rotor.



    Nicely engraved crown.



    The rather unusual "straight" lugs and "Made in Germany" text.



    Another angle.

    All in all a very well made watch from Stowa. I remember reading somewhere in this forum that Jorg personally checks EVERY watch that rolls out from their office. If this is still the practice, I must say I am damn proud to purchase a watch that has been "touched" by the man himself. :)

    I hope to write a full scale review when I learn better photo techniques.

    cheers

    Great pictures of your wonderful new watch. Classic styling that she shall enjoy for many years to come.
    Wear it in good health and in marital bliss. Of course she should reciprocate...
