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!
