    Do you think it’d be overkill to also get the Antea (either KS or 365). I know the antes and marine are very different but do you guys think there’s place for both in a collection? I’m thinking of maybe selling the Farer but might decide against it in the end since it’s a compact and comfortable great watch.
    The farer seema more playfull, with a similar vibe to the partitio in my mind. If you want a ks, go for it. Maybe take dial colour in consideration...?

    Here are some side by side pics of the Farer Stanhope and the Stowa Marine 36.
    I have a 6.5 inch wrist and think both look adequate on my wrist. The Farer is obviously smaller due to its very short lugs and compact cushion case. The Stowa I think looks beautiful with more presence than the Farer. But I really like both and the Farer has been my daily wearer for the past 9 months and it’s been a great addition that I don’t think I can part with. BTW the strap on the Farer is a two piece black perlon strap which is great; I found the included Farer barenia leather strap a bit too thick and stiff for my liking. I also tried their horween leather strap which I returned because it was even stiffer. I bought a Stowa stock leather strap which I plan to use on the Farer watch as it is really thin and comfortable.

    But trying to get my own thread back on topic (lol I know) I think there might be place in my collection to also add an Antea be it the KS or the 365. With my smaller wrist I’m not sure if the 365 would look ok but I think I might be able to pull it off.

    Thanks for your input!

    Re: Stowa Antea KS vs Antea 365

    This is great stuff hmsbeagle, couldn't ask for more. And see, I think both watches fit you beautifully. I have a 6in flat wrist and expect them to fit about the same (looking at a Marine 36 small seconds and a Farer Hudson in the near future).

    As for the antea, my only question is, do you like white/silver dial watches that much to get yet another one?

    And as I've read somewhere else, if you buy the antea, you should wear it. Which of your current watches would see less wrist time in favour of the antea, and how less? Do you think it's worth it?

    Between the 365 and KS I'd go Ks no doubt.

    Re: Stowa Antea KS vs Antea 365

    I have both the Marine 36 and an old logo Antea 365. Since I was a bit wary of the 7001, I ended up with the 365 partly because of the Soprod A10 movement (that was available at the time). I kind of regret not buying the KS though, since the date window is a bit of a nuisance to me now. You may also want to consider if you like a sweeping central seconds (I do) or a small seconds. They both have a very different look/feel.
