    That is very nice, it captures the vintage vibe whilst looking modern.

    Thanks.

    It certainly does.

    I do like that vintage vibe with the Favre Leuba Sea Sky being the perfect example and another new addition.

    The red line and ď50Ē print marking the 50 km/hour mark on the tachymetric scale is the standard speed limit in many European cities.

    Traded a couple of watches that just werenít getting worn and came home with this:



    If Iím perfectly honest I only tried it on (on a rubber B) to get an idea of size as when I tried my palís Liberace (two tone, MOP diamond dial) on it seemed small even for my wrists. This is a perfect size (Iíve accepted that an AP ROO diver is just too big for me and I wonít be buying a thirdÖ) at 40mm and just feels ďrightĒ on the wrist.

    Literally just got one of my grails. First wrist shot on the way home from the AD. Absolutely ecstatic about it. Going to be honeymooning this for at least a month.

    Thanks, let a moser streamliner centre seconds and an AP ROO diver go, with some cash my way. Took a bit of a bath on the Moser but made up for it bizarrely on the Daytona which was a good price and as mentioned I like it far more than I thought I would (only really tried it on for sizeÖ)

    Thanks all:) Been a busy few weeks but I'm done for the foreseeable future...

    @tiny73, I was actually chatting with Paul about his Mark VI before he sold it to you! That's a lovely watch and really glad that it stayed in the forum

    He did mention that you were sniffing around it Tommy 😂😂 itís still here, not going anywhere and worn routinely (and would be offered back to Paul for first refusal if I was forced into a sale), theyíre lovely watches and you look to have found a good example there 👍🏻

    Nice ... I'd love to see one of those in real life ...

  39. #13339
    Stowa arrived today.

    The leather strap is very nice, thick and soft but a little too thick for my liking not that I'd be wearing it anyway as prefer rubber, so swapped over the bronze buckle to the Hirsch pure natural rubber I had set aside for this.

    Initial thoughts after the first day... Certainly a finely made piece of kit. The bronze finish has been done by hand and whatever treatment they give it they say won't further oxidise in normal use but may react a little bit depending on what liquid it comes into contact with. A little annoying the strap buckle did not undergo the same treatment so will have to let that age over time, nothing major.

    The movement (Selita SW215-1 Top grade) winding action is nice and well damped although the clicking ratchet sound as you wind is not as loud as the one in the Hamilton (Hamilton H-50). It is a very nice looking movement though as the photos will show and Stowa have removed the ghost position when you opt for no-date which is nice, was fully expecting a ghost position like on the Laco (Miyota 8315) since no mention of its removal online anywhere, unless this is a recent thing.

    Even though the lume is old radium for the day colour, it hasn't affected the luminosity of the C3 in darkness, seems to be as bright as the bare C3 on the Laco which seems to last a fair while.

    The size and weight is almost perfect for me. Nice having a thinner case.

    Interesting observation on the domed sapphire, the way reflections move around on the surface is different to any other domed sapphire I have had or seen on a watch. It's hard to describe but it's very smooth and lacks any sort of distortion/magnification - Looks cool.

    Accuracy is supposed to be 0 to +10s a day but will keep an eye on. I've heard watches getting magnetised in shipping as they go through various scanning machines and things as they depart and arrive through countries. I have a demagnetiser anyway though if it does appear to be running fast.

    Many photos warning... Kinda funny that my photos below are the only photos online of this model with the hand wind movement and bronze caseback together :p







    I love the heat blued hands the way they shimmer in the light:


    On the wrist (6.7")



    More photos...







    Size comparison vs the Laco 39m and Hamilton 36mm:

    With the current service times it feels like a new arrival when you get one back! The condition for a nine year old watch is also astonishing after a full service.

    New arrival for me this week. Nothing compared to a lot of the big hitters here but a very significant purchase for me, first time buying in this tier. Really loving it so far.

    Congrats on getting this. I am sure it will be getting a lot of wrist time in the coming weeks. A great beater.
