    A nice pair

    My Marine Originals.

    Not that I ever do justify these - but sufficiently different (to me) to have both.
    After all different dials, and different cases

    Wow, beautiful. Can't wait for my MO roman to arrive next week.

    Having never seen the special edition in person, can someone explain the difference between the two dials? I know one is enameled and one is lacquered, right? What does that mean for materials? And what is the effect aesthetically? The special edition seems to "pop" a little more, is it a little more purely white? Is it more reflective material too? And I assume whatever is used on the SE is a more expensive process?

    Can we share other examples of watches with these two dial types? (with pics?) :)

    Great pair. Green with envy!

    Here is the "official" info, edited:
    Jörg has created for this watch a first in the Stowa collection - a white enamel lacquer dial with a traditional German red twelve. The enamel lacquer adds depth and richness to the dial, while the red twelve has historically been used in traditional German pocket and wrist watches as an indication of hand made quality. Adding to the uniqueness of the dial is the serial number that you choose, which will be applied by hand below the 6.

    The case is in 316L stainless steel, and has been matte finished. Each watch will come with a certificate hand signed by Jörg with your name and serial number.

    From my point of view. most of the pictures of the "red 12" dial do not seem to do it justice, I suspect that the reflection was making it look shallow in some way.

    I will bear that in mind - dont hold your breathe though. This takes me to 15 Schauers and Stowas, so perhaps the time is coming for a bit of thinning down!!!!

    I apologize for the picture's quality - but I love the watches nevertheless,

    Very nice!!

    Phew - thought I was bad with a pair of these and a pair of Kleine Schauers as well.

    Wouldn't mind one of the prevous smaller MOs (40mm) from the limited edition of 100 about 4 - 5 years ago.

    Volker, that's truly a stunning collection. Stowas can clearly be habit-forming!

    There are some seriously nice watches in this thread! Love the red 12 MO, though.
