    Mesh bracelet for Antea

    I was interested in the Stowa antea 365 (manual wind). The mesh bracelet offered by Stowa looked appealing to me for warmer weather. I think I would like the matte finish rather than the glossy finish. However, I'm worried that the watch bezel is glossy and a matte bracelet would clash. Does anyone have experience with the bracelet on the antea? I have found an number of photos on image search but it is not clear in the photos whether the glossy or matte bracelet was used.

    thanks again

    Hi, I just received my Antea 390 last week. I ordered it with the matte mesh bracelet just like you wish to. They e-mailed back and suggested the polished finish just so it would match the watch better. That made sense so me, so I took their advice. The watch and bracelet are stunning together. I prefer matte finishes over shiny myself, and even asked them to make the watch with a matte finish. They said they couldn’t do it. I followed their lead and am very happy. So, I think their advice is probably solid. It really isn’t “shiny’ at all.

    Good luck! Rick

    You made the correct choice. It looks awesome with the polished bracelet.

    I don't like shiny bling much either, but it works perfect on your watch.

    Enjoy.

    Great looking combo. I'm debating between the 365 and 390. I would assume the black dial wears a little smaller than the white.Would you mind sharing your wrist size?

    I have a big wrist: 198-200 mm. If you have a “normal” size, the 365 will work fine.
