    Thickness in a watch

    This may be an obvious question but, is the height of the Chrono 1938 based solely on the height of the movement or is it more of a design element? I guess it's my question as to why some watches are thicker and others are thinner (Stowa Antea)?

    Re: Thickness in a watch

    The thickness of a watch is determined by

    + movement and its complications (Antea: ETA 2824-2, Chrono: Valjoux chrono movement)
    + case construction
    + inner case (Damasko, IWC for example)
    + crystal (domed or slightly/not domed)
    + design
    Kind regards

    A quick Google search shows the 2824 movement to be 4.6mm thick and the 7750 7.9mm, so there is part of it right there.
