I'm in the process of buying a new watch and have been focusing on Hamilton and Stowa. I'm having trouble finding the Hamilton models I'm interested in and besides the standard Hamilton leather strap will not close around my 8 inch wrist, so would have to spend extra to buy a band if I went with Hamilton.
I'm strongly considering 4 Stowa models and would really appreciate some feedback from those of you who own or have seen these models as to which model(s) would work best for a large & wide wrist (ie 8 inches, 20.3 cm). The 4 Stowa models I'm considering are:
Antena 390 (39mm diameter):
Link: Antea 390 - STOWA GmbH & Co.KG
Flieger (40mm diameter):
Link: Flieger - STOWA GmbH & Co.KG
Marine Automatic (40mm diameter):
Link: Marine automatic white with date, polished case - STOWA GmbH & Co.KG
Marine Original - Manual (41mm diameter):
Link: Marine Original polished white roman numerals - STOWA GmbH & Co.KG
I've already talked with Stowa and they can ship the watch with an XL band that will fit my wrist at no additional cost. I also understand that Stowa's wear a bit larger than their size (large face, narrow bezzel). Shipping dates are scheduled for mid-April (not an issue).
Thanks for your help,
