    Matter of personal preference, no?

    I prefer matte / brushed finish more than I do polished!

    It all comes down to personal preference.
    For me, if I am getting a Stowa Marine it has to be polished.
    And if I ever pick up any fine scratches, it can be easily polished off using a Cape Cod polishing cloth. You probably need some experience when it comes to brushing a matt/brushed case, else the brushed surface will look different.

    Just a word of warning.

    I see people using brushed and matt interchangeably on this thread in a manner that could confuse some people. Stowa's that are matt have a fine bead blasted appearance that is the same as the sport model divers. Their brushed models are just that.

    To the OP, brushed finishes can be repaired relatively easily but matt finishes would need to be re-blasted. I like them both (along with polished) but you never said what model of stowa you were looking at? For instance, I think a polished prodiver would look terrible but it looks great on a MO.

    agreed
    as the marine is a dressier and less sporty watch i think it suits a polished finish more
