This process results in different layer thicknesses of the luminous mass and thus also different color gradings, but this supports the overall impression - VINTAGE - of the watch."

    I did not expect this but still I do like the overall looks.

    These pilot limited series have a unique feature only seen so far on the FO and the Klassic 36mm: lume on all dial markers.

    Feel sorry for everyone who ordered the MABLE.
    Having to choose between the polished and brushed cases, they both look really special. Can't say which i'd choose but fortunately/unfortunately i don't have to make that decision. Have the pics changed anyone's preferences?

    Yeah I certainly have that issue.

    I originally ordered a MABLE matte, no date. My reasons were 1)I feel a matte finish will reduce likelihood of scratches 2) safe from smudges.

    Now after seeing the polished finish I am pondering to polished (to such an extent that I am irritating my wife - posturing with deep thoughts as though pondering to solve World Hunger).

    Not helped that pictures of the original stowa deck timepieces showed polished finish (I am a sucker for 'historical' repros hence also the somewhat irrational leanings towards overpriced Leicas).

    I just put in a request to change to polished. I assume it won't be an issue, but if it is, I'll still be thrilled with the brushed.

    I also ordered a MABLE matt without date. Now I'm considering to change it to a date version.
    To me, the dial of the prototype watches seems hollow. I never have that feeling before.

    I have asked Sandra about the Tachymeter Scale is if the scale is going to be white or radhium color, is it going to lume like hours-minutes marker ?
    but she says the design has not been finalized yet..... That's the most exciting part of being Stowa's Fan :)
    Only the answer is "the lume is certainly Green"

    Do you guys expect any special engraved on the Rotor for 90th anniversary? Seems like I do ...... but if Jorg's decision is to do nothing with that I might upgrade to Handwidning movement instead.

    Let's wait til July then for whatever come out.... but I do trust in Stowa's sense of design and decision

    Rather go for polished case to match those hands
    even though I always think

    Arabic --> Brushed
    Roman --> Polished

    but that was different hands style
