    Marine No-Date

    I posted about this discontinued model a few weeks ago. I far prefer no-date watches and I love symetrical dials, so I was sadddened to hear that they were no more and all gone. (Even though the Marine Original will be cool too).

    And now.... Jorg has found me one! Woo hoo! I ordered from Jorg today so I am now in 'watching-out-for-the-courier' mode for the next few days.

    Pics when it gets here....

    Re: Marine No-Date - It's Here!

    Well, it has arrived! (only took two days). My initial impression is that I think it is fantastic - so simple and functional at the same time as elegant. A classic.

    Here is a quick first photo:



    Those blue hands are hard to catch!

    Now for the strap question. What do you think - dark brown, tan or blue? I have dark blue on the way so I'll try that when it arrives.

    Congratulations, quoll !

    I have always pictured the Marine with a dark brown strap, but your mileage may vary.

    Have you considered having the new hands set (differently shaped hour hand, blued second hand) mounted ?
    Cheers,

    Hello quoll,

    Congrats! Great looking watch!

    Regarding your strap question: dark brown IMHO.

    Kind regards Philipp

    Re: Marine No-Date

    Thanks guys. I think this could end up being No.1 watch for me. (But then I do say that about a lot of new watches...).

    I will try it on all three strap combos - I agree dark brown may be the winner but I am curious as to how it will look on blue. I don't think I have seen a photo of one on a blue strap before.

    I had not noticed that the new Stowa hands had the second hand in blue also. There is another nearby thread with the new Marine hands in some detail I think. I think it is one detail too far for me - I'm happy as it is.

    Re: Marine No-Date - Blue Strap

    Here is the watch on a dark blue 'Aerosport' - looks good in my opinion.



    and here are those blue screws in close-up:
