    Stowa Partitio *Update*

    Following my IWC Spitfire thread and how the date seems to disagree with the majority and I kind of agree but still have my heart set on one.
    Then out the blue comes Stowa with an email to let me know that I can purchase a limited edition Partitio.
    Workhorse ETA 2824-2 calibre, 37mm case and no date to ruin the symmetry. I have the Stowa marine original already and think its a beautiful watch for the money.
    The cost is very tempting too at 806 Euro's and a delivery lead time of 4 weeks slots nicely into my birthday.
    What did I do? Yep I've ordered one... The IWC can wait until next year for my 50th, and just like that 1 month in and I've broken my no more watches in 2020 manifesto .

    That is lovely. Such a simple legible dial.

    The next 4 weeks will seem like 4 months though!

    Please post some photos when it arrives.

    Looks like you got some good discount as it is 960 euros on their website

    Very attractive! My first proper watch was a Stowa. Great quality and heritage for the price.

    Does it have a 'ghost' position pulling out the crown for where the date quickset would be?

    Lovely watch. I had a Stowa marine classic manual wind that I sold and I miss it

    I had one before, for some reason finger prints are very noticeable on the glass needed to clean the glass 10X a day I sold it for that reason

    Thatís a good-looking watch.

    Stowa make some really nice stuff, very well executed & with interesting heritage.

    A Stowa Marine Automatic was of my first purchases, and one I still own. With a solid silver dial & heat-blued hands, it was superb value.

    It's arrived this afternoon... Very happy with it.
    Makes a nice change from the 44mm Panerai I got recently at 37mm.

    I wish I only had 4 weeks, or even 4 months, but I have 8 months to wait for the Timor Heritage Field watch that I backed on Kickstarter. I will agree that the Stowa looks real nice. I had looked in the past at the Marine model.
