    I used to own the blue. Had this grey been available back then, it would have been my choice.

    Why did you get rid of your blue? as I have decided to go for the blue instead of the grey.

    I saw this at the Windup Watch Fair yesterday.

    I was very impressed with the way the turquoise and grey work together.

    Titanium case on the rubber strap feels great on the wrist.

    Gave very serious thought to purchasing one.


    However, I decided the dial, although beautiful, had too much "reflectivity".


    Kind of bummed out with my decision not to buy.


    I will most likely kick that decision around for a while; nothing etched in stone, yet.

    As I mentioned in another post, I thought the same thing about the dial and was quite concerned (as I've already ordered one) but the hands, IMO, are the really reflective parts. The lights in that room made the time almost illegible at certain angles. But outside it was a much more subtle effect. It's certainly not the most legible Stowa in bright light, but I've already got two Stowas that are..the Flieger Sport and the most legible watch I own, the TO1. I ultimately decided to stick with the gray dial Prodiver (after contemplating changing my order to the Seatime Black Forest LE) because it really does look unique compared to other Stowas...and cool. It's not the one I would wear if I were actually going diving (as legibility is paramount there) but it's the classiest looking diver Stowa makes and perfect for a desk diver like me.

    Congratulations!


    Looking forward to your thoughts (and pictures); I am still quite impressed with the watch.

    Stowa's diver watches are so cool...I have an okay diver watch right now but would love to upgrade to a Stowa, either a Seatime or a Prodiver. The Prodiver on that titanium bracelet looks amazing.

    Got an email from Stefan at Stowa today. There's a further 1-2 month delay on obtaining the ceramic bezel so they've offered to send the watch now with an aluminum bezel and then send the ceramic bezel separately when it arrives for free...and you can keep the aluminum bezel. I told them absolutely!

    I love my blue Prodiver. The dial of the grey looks stunning but I'm less fan of the light blue hand
    +1 on that! I have the black dial variant.

    Would love to see that bezel and seconds hand on the white dial PD.

    Great way to handle a delay; way to go, Stowa.


    And congrats on an earlier arrival.
