I want a Stowa....badly.
I've narrowed my choice down to the MO and the MA (no date).
Main motivation apart from their simplistic beauty is to have a clean-cut, quality, every day watch which is lighter and THINNER than my Breitling 50th anniversary Navi.
The Breitling is beautiful, especially with its matt case, but weighs about a kilo and is approx. 15.5mm thick.
I understand the MA is 10.02mm thick and weighs 70g
the MO is 12.00mm thick and weighs 77g.
Is the extra thickness/weight of the MO really that noticeable compared to the MA?? Any side by side pics around?
I feel totally drawn by the idea of a manual- the interaction/feel etc... and the case back is far superior visually (IMO).
HOWEVER, the Auto is thinner, lighter and probably more suited to every day wear- I especially like the look of a tan colored Nato canvas strap on it- perfect for summer.
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me make my decision.
