    Re: Stowa marine 36mm

    I too would love to see a wrist shot of the 36mm Stowa Marine. I would welcome people's thoughts on the choice of a dress watch: I am considering the 36mm Marine (Roman numerals), a white dial Partitio and a Hamilton silver 38mm Intra-Matic. All three seem to be beautiful, well regarded watches so any help making a choice would be welcome.

    Here's my thoughts: The 36 to 38 mm size for all the options is perfect. Even though I have a 7.5" wrist I much prefer smaller (40mm and below watches) watches for their comfort and a look that I prefer. I'd prefer a white dial for this watch, but the silver of the Hamilton will work too, but I am not sure about the lack of a second hand on that watch. I prefer a date on my watch and that's missing from the Partitio. I work as a consultant, but I only wear suit on occasion. Most of the time I am wearing smart business casual. To get an idea of my preferences, I have trimmed my watch collection to just a few pieces: A Rolex Sub, Seiko Alpinist SARB017 and an inexpensive 37mm Seiko SNK809. I have owned a few Sinn watches (556, 856 and 857 UTC) as well as a Damasko... beautifully made watches but just not right for me so I sold them eventually.

    Thanks for your thoughts... So what's your thought on each of these:

    Here is my Partitio in the wild. My wrist is just under 7 inches (6.9 in).

    Sorry about the glare in the picture. Even though the Partitio does not have AR coating, glare is really only noticeable in pictures.

    It wears smaller than the pictures suggest, but not too small.

    It's been my experience that Stowa watches display much better in the wild than in pictures, especially better than Stowa's website pictures, which like often look dull and washed out to me. Part of this may be that Jorg needs to hire a better photographer/web people, but more because Jorg's designs are subtle and designed for the eye in the wild, and not for Instagram photos (I'm looking at you, panda dials and most Omega Speedmaster LEs).

    I wrote some notes to the black dial Partitio review up top in the review subfolder. I think this is a great business-casual watch. When I first got it, I thought about flipping it to a friend in Canada, who won't/can't buy watches from the EU because of the Canadian customs and duties and the weakness of the CAD compared to the EUR, but I decided to keep it because it's a terrific office watch.

    Thank you for posting the picture. The thin bezel combined with the bright white dial makes me think this new Stowa Marine wears a bit larger than most other 36mm watches. I like it.

    I like the dial proportion of it better than 40mm one.

    Re: Stowa marine 36mm

    Many thanks for finally posting an in-the-wild photo, JuNi!

    I'm not sure if it is the lighting in this particular photo, but I did find it slightly underwhelming after such a build up. In particular, the blued hands do not pop. The logo also looks more pronounced than I had expected, after seeing some wrist shots of the Antea (where it almost seemed to fade away as a lighter color). Perhaps it has to do with the relative size of the face compared to the 40mm or 41mm MA/MO?

    I am on the cusp or ordering the handwound version, but now I feel like I am starting to second guess myself. Hopefully once @JuNi has a bit more time, we will be treated to wrist shots and other photos of the mini marine!
