I am planning on ordering a Marine 36 hand wind as soon as they come back from vacation. I guess I have to research this 'movement issue'!
According to the specs on their website a couple of weeks ago .. yes 9.2... A big However, is that they seem to have changed the movement in the hand wind, so we will have to wait and see if that measurement changes...???
the hand wound movement is the same we have delivered the last two years. There has been a few pictures in the webshop for a couple of days after a backup which have been wrong. Now we are checking and changing them - but unfortunately or summer holidays crossed this work. this is the reason that some pictures are still not online. so this happens for the marine 36 watches which are available of course with handwound movement.
i have attached a picture of the 40 mm watch that you can see the picture of the movement. If you want to order the 36 mm watch you just can order it in the shop and tell us during the orderprocess that you want hand wound version or you wait till we have checked the pictures and upload them again. 8the problem are the holidays of all STOWA members and some people who help with the shop).
bye for now
I am just finding conflicting information regarding this matter all the time. The website says 10.2mm but I've seen several videos where they actually measure the height where the measurement is closer to 11mm than 10mm. And then again people say it's 9.2 mm on this forum a couple of pages into this particular thread.
I've heard people say, 9.2mm, 10mm, 10.2mm, 10.67mm, 11mm. I think the watch looks great regardless of its height but wouldn't it be nice to know what the height actually is? One might wonder if they've changed something in the process of manufacturing the watches because it's a pretty large gap between 9.2mm and 11mm.
Marine 36 (manual with roman numbers) is one of the watches i wanted to own since i first saw it. I wanted a smaller, comfortable watch with clean dial and great looking movement. Problem is, it is so nice, i imagine to wear it only with a dress. And i don't wear formal dress a lot at all. + i would have a really hard time picking between 36 and 40mm at the end.

If you have 7+ inch wrist go for the 40mm otherwise go for the 36mm. Since there is no bezel and the dial takes up the whole front of the watch it appears larger then it actually is, trust me on this.

I just got an email from Stowa - I had specifically asked about case thickness of 36mm the Hand wind - the answer was 9.2mm. However, as the above posts mention - several videos and reviews all say .. and show ..10.2 or so? I think the Stowa in house information is indeed based on the 40 mm cases which are different. Whereas the 36 mm case is the same for both auto and hand wind. I really still don't know the true thickness, but that is my best guess.
I can update this thread with the correct height after I've received mine.
