    Received and recommended: Marine Original roman

    Have to put in my plug for this Marine Original. Such a beautiful, timeless classic. The blued hands are incredible. The movement with nice big viewing back is gorgeous, the roman numerals are classy, and the sound! I love the Unitas tick! Sounds very much like my 1916 Waltham pocket. I'm pretty much speechless. Jorg, you are a master.



    These two are my first very nice watches, and I think this cures my desires for the foreseeable future. I can wear the Damasko to work and in almost any situation, yet when I need it a little more dressy, the Stowa is it.

    You can see in the second photo the difference between with anti-reflective coating (damasko) and without (stowa).





    Got the Stowa third hand for just under $900 and in mint condition. A steal by any measure.

    May 2009 find your wrist happy. Mine certainly is!

    They make a really well-balanced pair... the sportier arabic/black dial/AR/brushed (ti?) look, and the classic romans/sub-seconds/white dial/polished. Very nice. I recently got the arabic MO, and totally agree with you on the overall finish of the watch (and the sound of the movement!). Just amazing for the price. I've never been a huge fan of the roman dial version personally, but your pictures really sell it. Congratulations, enjoy them!

    Actually steel. Damasko calls it "ice-hardened" steel. I can vouch for the claims and assure you it is virtually indestructible, unscratchable.

    Right!
    I'd like to see a Stowa Airman in a Damasko case. That would be an absolute beater, wouldn't it ?!
