    Having gazed upon this gratuitous horror, I don't even find that entirely implausible... :bi_polo:

    There's a whole thread devoted to (mostly) slagging them off. Unfairly IMHO. I like mine, a lot. Sign-up for their newsletters and wait for the Black Friday sale - some seriously good deals.

    This thread has been an education - I hadn't appreciated the quality of build in these watches, nor the history of the crown and trigger mechanism. Ashamed to say I dismissed them on superficialities...

    Likewise my DSub3, it's subtle but definitely domed - I Polywatched the annoying AR coating off it (finally! I have black dial, not a blue-grey one!), so feel I know it pretty well...

    Apologies! As charged officer. The Stowa is lovely BTW, and I'm not usually much of a fan of bronze.

    So have you re-cased an existing Stowa, or is this a fake watch?

    IME, not all straps have the flexibility to do as shown in the Watch Gecko vid, in which case the little lever can simply be pulled-out with a small set of pliers or artery-forceps, IME they pop out...

    Happy to be in a minority with this - it looks great, better in the metal than in the renders, and fit and finish look very good. Enjoy!

    If they scaled-down and "de-clumsified" the crown assembly (without impinging on Panerai's patents), that would actually be a really good-looking watch.

    UK prices - at least according to Sellors - are DC70 - 2,260, DC72 - 2,348, and DC76 - 2,961.

    No sign of an update to Chronomaster's website yet, but his prices are usually a mite keener.
