    Re: Marine Original silver vs white dial?

    I am ordering the hand-winding Marine Classic Silver soon. Stowa's site describes the dial as "a solid dial made of 925/000 sterling silver." To me this sounds more substantial than a silver-colored dial, or a dial with an applied silver coating. Am I understanding this correctly?

    I really expect this to be a watch that I will keep for years and pass on to my kids. Aged silver often develops gorgeous tones and patina, so I'm hoping this dial will also.

    The last post (from 2013) mentions that Stowa's silver dials are coated, so I wouldn't expect any patination to occur on yours. My Marine Auto with silver dial looks the same today as it did when I bought it 3 years ago.

    Ah, thanks for pointing this out. I had not seen that thread.
