    Surpise Arrival

    Wasn't expecting this quite so quickly - must have been out of the door as soon as I hit the PayPal button






    I am beguiled by the display back, it is very bright & sparkles in the sunshine





    I am relieved that what I said in another thread... "size doesn't matter" proves to be true. It's one of my smallest diameter modern watches, yet perfect on my wrist





    The strap... red brown, was also a much more subdued and pleasant shade than suggested by the official photo


    sort of a more rustic aged look, very nice. I chose the XL as I prefer a long tail.

    Unfortunately my photographic attempts failed to capture the beauty of the silver dial. In most pictures, the Antea face looks flat, almost lifeless but in reality it is sharp & vibrant.

    In conclusion - another excellent Stowa.

    Nice watch, and top-notch photos! The one of the caseback is especially stunning. Congrats, it looks terrific. Can I ask what size is your wrist?

    Many congrats!

    Yes, that's the same with me:
