    I got the e-mail today, but the picture is weak. I wish they would have had several decent pics. You can't really see the silver 12.

    They do look pretty hot if you like the black face, and the silver 12 sounds cool. Just wish I could actually tell. I am not questioning the watch itself, I mean...it's a Stowa LE. That actually means something. Congrats on the solid pickup.

    Is there a new LE MO? I haven't received any word from stowa, and i'm supposed to be registered for updates. How did you find out? Thanks-

    Just placed my order for #8 as I already have #16 MO LE and I am hoping this is at least half as nice!

    Re: MOLE Part Two - Real Men Wear Black

    Wow, thanks for the heads-up. I put up my 3 C's for #11. As of 10:20 pm EDT, 9 of 80 were reserved.... Reading the watchbuys page, it looks like a few more (120) are available this time: 80 for North America and 40 for the rest of the world.

    And now the waiting begins. Guess my next email is to Stowa to cancel my pending order for the Marine Auto Date. Love it, but the black dial, silver 12, matte case of this LE II certainly does it for me. Gotta love it, even if you're not an Oakland Raiders fan!

    Just placed my order for #2. I believe the silver 12 is going to look sharp! I was just about to order a black MO and then I saw this thread for a black MOLE. THANKS!!

    i like the matte casing, but i don't know if there is enough difference from this LE and the normal black MO to be worth it. I like how the original MOLE had the enamel dial which really easily sets it apart from a regular one.

    Agreed! I thought about it, but decided not to pull the trigger on matching MO LEs. For me, a large part of the allure of the MO is the blued hands, and the enamel finish of the MO LE 1 (is that what we call it now?) dial looked too awesome to pass up.

    I also agree with Scm64--I couldn't tell much about the applied 12 marker from the supplied pic.
    Cheers,
