I'm fairly new in the world of automatics. Last year I bought a Tissot Le Locle Auto like the one shown here (not my photo) http://www.wristwatchreview.com/wp-c...issot2kyg9.jpg . Looks great in person and has been keeping good time.
I've been eyeing my next watch to wear with a brown band. After staring at watches until my eyes bleed, I stumbled on Stowa's. Once I saw the Marine Auto I was pretty sure my search had ended (for now).
I placed an order this morning. I know they're on the month long vacation over there and saw it won't be here till mid November, but I'm ok with that.
I saw a couple of brushed Auto's so I emailed them to see if I can get that done. I hope it works out.
