Stowa newbie here, and am glad to say I finally see what all the fuss is about. Recently picked up a very gently used Marine Original (old logo, yes!) and think I can finally put to rest the search for my long term dress watch. I love hand winders, and pocket watches, and having a dress watch with a hand wind pocket watch movement is even better than I figured. I'm especially a fan of the slow, inexorable "tick tick tick" you can hear from about three feet away.
Been working on buffing out the light scratches around the bezel, tonight I think i'll have almost all of them gone. Very excited about this one, can definitely see one of the boys inheriting it some day.
