We can agree to disagree, neither of us will convince the other. After all, this is a dead issue, old vs. new.

I understand that Hartmut Esslinger was involved in convincing Stowa to change its logo in 2013 and that he has some influence in the design community, but I’m unable to find the reason this was extended to the historical Antea models. I can't get over the incongruity of the new logo in these Bauhaus watches, as the angularity and sharp points of the triangular icon detract from the aesthetic. It is too superfluous for Bauhaus. The logo is perhaps fitting for the modern designs, but such a design that is essentially unchanged from that historically made by Stowa should be honoured with the old logo, I think. It is something I see in the Partitio watch, and I find it regrettable that it is not considered for the Antea.
Could any one offer me good reasons why this new logo belongs on an Antea? I’m willing to have my mind changed with a compelling story, and I would love to support Stowa with another purchase. As it stands, I can’t help but think that this was an absent-minded change to a perfectly designed historical model.
I’m looking to have my emotions swayed. It seems unlikely, but you all seem to have a good understanding of things and may be able to help. Thank you, all.
I also much prefer the old logo. It's funny, I would wager that at least 80% of Stowa fans prefer the older logo, and not merely for nostalgic/historical reasons, but aesthetics as well. Since we all know Jörg reads these forums, I wonder if he would ever be persuaded to change back to the old logo, or at least offer it as an option for some watches. I would immediately buy an Antea 41 and a Flieger Classic with the old logo.

Theres so many options already I can't see picking between two logos.
They already have logo, no logo, date, no date, and different dial colors. The possible combinations after additional an "old logo" option would be untenable.
I'm usually not super prone to hyperbole or anything but I don't think I'd buy a watch with the new logo on it.
