    Took delivery of a MO 4 days ago . It's my first watch powered by Unitas and I'm very pleased with it.



    Brown strap that came with the watch was replaced by a blue one.

    Re: For Marine Original owners

    I have owned the MO with roman numerals and polished case on a stowa black/brown croc with deployant, for a few years now....i wear it exclusively with a suit...not that it couldnt be dressed down as some of these pics show...i just feel that the arabic numerals make that transition easier...just my opinion.
    We have one simple rule about watches at my house....she doesn't ask....and I don't tell!

    Re: For Marine Original owners

    Sandra is a joy to deal with. I ordered the clasp with mine (they offered to pre-install it but I declined) and it is really nice. Fairly standard but well made butterfly with a small'ish "buckle" and crisply engraved Stowa logo. One unique (and controversial) design choice is that, rather than a simple pin, the clasp locks the tail in with a small screw. This is, of course, excellent for safety as the clasp can never inadvertently let go. But it also precludes on-the-fly adjustments if you find it too loose/tight as you go about your day. You'll need to factor this into your purchase decision. It's priced absolutely competitively compared to generic butterflies, but the latter may be preferable if you would rather have the freedom of readjustment. The one other (picky, geeky, vain) downside of the screwed clasp is that you can't quickly open up the strap for a better view of the beautiful caseback.

    Here are some photos of it on the stock Stowa croc strap (PS. this strap is light like the first photo, the others show it darker than reality.) I didn't take a shot of the screw-pin, did a quick web search to see if someone else has but didn't find one. Regardless, it's a classy addition to the strap and watch.

    Re: For Marine Original owners

    I transferred my Stowa clasp from my black strap that came with my first MO (I've ordered it with a clasp then) to my new Blue MO. I think it is OK, but nothing close to my Oris John Coltrane clasp, which is adjustable on the fly and is single type. It also hides the end of the strap on the inside. I wanted to spare my croco strap though and moreover I wear my white MO on a mesh, so my original black strap stays in the drawer :) It would be nice if Stowa upgrade their butterfly clasp with a more convenient and practical design.
