I have been searching for a smaller, easily readable, hand wound watch under US $1000 to round out my collection. This watch with 36mm size, optional ETA 2804 hand winding movement, 9.2mm height, and beautiful white face with clean black numerals simply meets all my needs. The lovely crown, flame blued hands, and gorgeous decorated movement add to the value of this watch. I have searched and searched for the perfect 36-38mm hand winding watch (Weiss, Hamilton, Vero, Orient, Steinhart, Origin, and many others,) but none were able to match the finish and refinement that Stowa has with their product. I'm saving up now, but hope to order this soon!
