    Love my new Marine Original!

    I came across Stowa on the internet last year, I decided in April this year that I will pull the trigger on one. Got your opinions and ordered beginning of May.

    I don't know how to emphasize that none of the endless pictures I've seen on the web do this watch justice, but it's true. I had very high expectations from the pictures, praise on the forum, and the price (I'm still an undergrad student) and when I opened the case in excitement and nervousness, my face had a smile, the smile where all of my expectations were met and surpassed.

    I don't know how to describe the watch other than: beautiful, cool, sophisticated, awesome. It just suits me perfectly.

    Pictures will come later.

    I ordered the Polished version, with a dark brown croco strap, however since the strap had to be shipped separately, Stowa provided a free leather strap for immediate wear! Both straps looks good and give the watch a dressier (croc) or casual/business (leather) look.

    Stowa's customer service is also the best I've seen from a company and have made buying a watch an experience.

    The price and three months...so worth it, Thanks Stowa!

    P.S. Anyone know how the Serial Number system works? I'm number 1959, but I've seen a 2065 I think on the forum?

    You did very well deciding on the MO Polished with the croco strap! I Couldn't decide which strap I liked best so I ordered three! It is truly a beautiful watch that goes with any attire. A side from looks, it is a high quality piece,fit and finish are superb!! Do you find yourself staring at the movement? If you do your not alone!!


    Wear it in good health,

    Congrats on a great watch. I agree that even the best pictures (and mine are far from that) don't quite do it justice. I have a DiModell navy blue alligator strap on mine and it's terrific. I also enjoy wearing it on shark skin.

    That is a beatiful watch. I ordered a Stowa Marine about 5 years ago, but at that time I think the only option was ETA power? The new Originals are just stunning. I love the blued hands on the classic dial. Great company and a wonderful product. The cost of their leather bands with the Stowa buckle is also very reasonable.

    Congratulations on the MO. Great purchase, but starting a thread like this one without photos is frustrating. . Being the owner of 2065, which arrived this spring, I was fascinated to see that you received 1959. Not sure what that is about, but would love to find out. Anyway, #2065 says hello.
