    Nice picture, Hidden. I must learn how to use those iPhone effects.

    My MABLE arrived yesterday. After months of waiting, the end-game was almost brutally swift.

    Sandra e-mailed me on the 18th, saying that my watch would be "ready for dispatch" in 5-10 days, which was a complete lie, because it was ready within 2 days! It left Stowa last Thursday and was in my hands by early Monday afternoon - from Germany to Malaysia in 4 days. A lot better than the last 2 week world tour, courtesy of Royal Malaysian Customs.

    I had steeled myself to be unimpressed, but I could not help a silent intake of breath when I took the cover off the box. It may be because it's my first Stowa Marine anything, but I immediately knew it was a keeper. Craithorn described the dial very well in one of his earlier posts, and I can't really add to that, save to say that in the metal, the dark blue/black has an elegant, dignified, presence that is hard to describe in words. People who already own an MA or MO or similar watch might be less impressed.

    I opted for polished, no-date, as I will be wearing it as a dress watch in a formal business environment, and am very happy with my choice. If I had to nitpick, I would say that the only thing that left me slightly underwhelmed was the strap. Although it had a nice signed buckle, I didn't think it quite matched the polished case, so I swapped it out for a black Hirsch after I took this shot - easy fix!

    Thanks. I changed it to a Colareb Venezia Blue and it looks better than the black one. Dunno maybe just me, but the blue strap magically trick me to see the blue on dial better.

    To be fair, I don't like it on the black strap it came together. Or maybe I just feel meh because it just look too much like my MOBLE. Others did warned me tho, but let's see how it goes.

    So who's still waiting for Mabel to get in touch? Was told it's likely to be the end of October, anyone received theirs recently? Starting to loose interest and that Farer Aqua Compresor with the blue dial is starting to look nice.

    I’m pleased with this watch. The blue dial doesn’t pop out from the brush finish. It’s kind of humble design to my liking.

    I feel like I’m the only one who ordered this watch with the date. LOL
