    Seatime Wrist shots?

    Hello All,

    After several months of looking for a new watch I stumbled on this and the Stowa website. I know I'm going to gain a lot of information here... as well as plenty of temptation to spend money!

    I'm very interested in several of the Stowa watches, which is unusual as I tend to like individual watches from different manufacturers. However, I was primarily looking for a new watch for diving which won't look out of place under a shirt sleeve too. I narrowed it down to the Seatime.

    Having owned a few watches and tried many more I know that they can wear differently to how they look in a picture.

    Has anyone out there got any wrist shots of their own watches? If you could also share any general comments about the watch and it's comfort that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the detailed mail Glen!

    My wrist is about the same size so the photos you posted give me a very good idea of how it might look. I also think your chosen combo of blue face and steel bezel looks really good.

    It was also a relief to read about your comments regarding comfort. There's nearly always something not quite to your liking when looking for a new watch. I felt fairly certain that the bracelet should be comfortable, due to the multi-links, but it was interesting to learn about the construction as I think many manufacturers skimp on bracelet quality. I was less sure about the comfort of the case itself on the wrist as it's quite angular. From an aesthetic point of view I like the angularity though.

    All in all, it sounds like you're really enjoying owning the piece. I think I'm another step closer!

    Thanks again,

    Nigel

    Hi Greg,

    You've got you're point across very well! I feel as assured as I can be regarding the build quality and comfort without trying one on.

    What this has done is give me the confidence to go out of my way to visit the factory later this summer. I'm not lucky enough to have business trips to Germany (not in the current economic climate anyway) but a few friends and I have been looking at a cycling trip in either Germany or Switzerland this year. No prizes for guessing where we'll actually end up!

    It'll be a while yet but I'll post some pictures when I get mine.

    All the best,

    Nigel

    Thoroughly recommend the Seatime. The different combinations of bezel and face colours seem endless. It may be big but still sits OK on my 6.5 inch wrist and is very comfortable. I bought it with the rubber strap so cannot comment on how a bracelet wears but, I've worn it on a few different straps and found they all suited (well to my taste) it.



    Have bought a wider Bond now than shown above.



    I have left the blue shark on it for some time now.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards

    This thing is big, solid, beautiful and accurate.

    I put the green bezel on, both are nice though.

    Special Edition yellow face from the past. The Seatime on bracelet is a lovely celebration of metal and fine watchmaking. Unfortunately I have some small wrists and while I loved the watch I didn't the the watch looked at home on my wrist. The watch did sit comfortably though and wasn't a bother, it wore very well but I just think the looks were a little big.

    Thanks to all for taking the time to send in your pictures.

    I can see that it's a substantial, well built watch that needs perhaps a 7" plus wrist for it to look right. I reckon I could just carry it off, although eating a few more pies would help!

    Andy:

    Whereabouts in Wales are you? I'm over every month or so and it would be great to see your watch in the flesh if you were prepared to meet!

    All the best everyone,

    Nigel
