I am very interested in acquiring a Stowa Partitio, but would love some feedback on my thoughts.
My current watches are:
Damasko DA36 (automatic); black dial; arabic.
Omega Seamaster 1958 (automatic); white dial; stick. (From my father, I only it wear on special occasions.)
Stowa Marine Original (handwound), white dial, arabic.
Photos of these 3 watches are below. I love them all.
I am not a flipper at all, but am selling (trying to sell) a mint Seiko "Blue Spark" and a mint Damasko DA37 in order to fund this potential new watch, and to create space. I really do not want more than 4 watches maximum + my G-Shock.
I would appreciate some feedback and other opinions on the dial colors.
(I would prefer handwound if I had a choice, but that is not a real deal-breaker.)
These are my feelings so far:
Pros: I love the black color; love the great lume; handwound option; would only buy the white second hand I think.
Cons: none really; but black might be redundant to the Damasko DA36?
W&W LE BLUE:
Pros: I have no blue watches, but am really unsure of the dial color (maybe there is a reason I do not have any blue dial watches...)
Cons: Automatic only; people are selling them used for $1,000; I am not a fan of the "parchment" lume; nor really of the "playful" red-tipped second, so I wonder if I really should be looking at an entirely different blue-dial watch (but same price range as I cannot afford Nomos, etc.).
What was that Stowa LE, the MABLE? Maybe look for one of those or too redundant to my MO?
Pros: also beautiful; also handwound as an option.
Cons: I would then have 3 white dial watches and 1 black dial watch.
Every time I think of this I have different feelings, so maybe some other opinions and experiences will broaden my thinking and approach.
