    I'd buy one. Would you?

    Long time Stowa fan here, but I've been away from this hobby for some years.
    Wanted a new watch, and Stowa was the first choice when revisiting the catalogs. Two of the recently launched models immediately grabbed my attention: Flieger Verus (already ordered the Black Forest LE) and Marine 36 (will follow probably early next year).
    I also wanted another 40mm to keep in rotation with the Verus for casual use (the Marine will be kept for more formal occasions).
    Imagined the dial from TO2 inside a 40mm case.
    I like it a lot!

    Yep- I like their causal models and would buy the Fleiger GMT but don't want a 46mm watch, I would buy a seatime but it's also wears very big. a 40mm 'sport' model would be very welcome

    Not a big fan of sterile dials. Reminds me of the clock I have in my car. So I would pass.

    Yeah-
    Great question. I've been browising this forum(Stowa) for awhile and really like the history/quality of Stowa and all the positive reviews of Those who have them.
    If they made either the TO2 Sport or the Testaf T01 in a 40-42 mm case...those would certainly be on my short list for a next purchase.
    But both of those at 45 mm..it's too big for me.

    TO2, TO2 sport and TO1 testaf...I really like the sterile dial, the sword hands and the big indices with no numerals.

    Compare the stowa T02 similarly to the Damasko DS30. Damasko is under 40mm case size.

    Put a lime seconds hand on it and I'll buy it for sure, although I'd prefer to have a new case shape for it, something more modern like the TO2 case and crown.

    This.

    A 40mm T02 would be great.
