Hi all and happy new year.
First of all I´m a big Stowa fan and currently have a Marine 36 Arabic/No date which I love and wear almost every day. I was thinking the other day that I´ve always liked the looks of the Antea especially the KS version. While browsing the Stowa website I noticed that the Antea KS is handwound presumably due to the 7001 movement. I was wondering if there is an automatic version of the KS or just an automatic version with the case dimensions of the KS. I might be willing to forgo the small seconds for the 365 automatic version but the only thing holding me back is the longer lug to lug length of the 365.
I have a 6.5 inch wrist and think that the KS size would suit me best. As a reference the Marine 36 I own has the same lug to lug length as the Antea KS based on the numbers provided on the Stowa site. I´m curious as to your opinion regarding this. Do you think the extra millimeter in case diameter and lug to lug length is enough for one to notice the difference between these two versions of the antea or do you guys think they wear pretty much the same?? I ask because I have a Seiko SNKL23 that has similar lug to lug lenght compared to the antea 365 at least on paper and I sometimes feel that the seiko´s lugs are a bit too long for my wrist since they are straight; and I am not sure if the antea lugs are straight or if they curve down.
Thanks for your help and input!
