I have been waiting for a Stowa for over a year now (I was on the original FO waiting list), so it seems a little strange that it's only 2 days ago that I finally received my first Stowa.
Now of course it's not a FO... but a model that I have yet to see any posting... so may I have the honour to post the first real-life photos of... MO black-dial w/ roman numerials.
Why roman numerials? Shouldn't a MO w/ arabic numerials be the more "approriate" choice?
Well at the time I was under the false hope that I would be getting the FO pretty soon, and therefore wanted something that look a little different. Plus I also have a couple of watches with arabic numerials but none with
roman, and so I took a leap of faith and place my order.
I can now happily announce that I am very happy with my decision: the watch looks amazing in real-life. The roman numerials are nicely done on the dial, and give the watch a different kind of character... elegant, but yet masculine. I have owned quite a number of wristwatches and I can tell you this beauty is on par with other watches 3 or 4 times the price.
The only complaint I have is the deployment buckle. It feels flimsy and not up to the standard of the rest of that watch... well maybe I shouldn't complain if I consider the price. It's just that the watch itself is so
surprisingly good that the buckle is a let down in comparison.
Well I hope you enjoy the photos and I apologize that I'm no master in photography...
