  • A funny thing happened while at a fundraiser last night.

    I've had the Antea for a couple of months now and it's gotten a fair bit of wrist time. It is a gorgeous watch. I'm not sure why, perhaps it is because it is nearly perfect, but I loved it more as a concept than in reality; sort of like the first season of Newhart. It's not that I didn't like it, it was just...well...

    Last night we were at a lovely wine and appetizer fundraiser for a theatre company. About halfway through the night I casually glanced down at my wrist to check the time and BAM! It hit me. The scales were lifted from my eyes. I fell in love with this watch.

    Well done! I usually wait until I've SOLD a watch to fall in love with it.

    yes, that is a Teutonic beauty!

      Darn good luck, that was.
      The other options are not so pleasant:
      You own it but never adore it.
      You sell it, then fall in love with it later.
      You fall in love with a watch you could never own.

        So, new rule: don't drink while evaluating a new watch

        That Bauhaus is calling me. I may get hold of one, not necessarily a Stowa, but similar. My college watch was a smallish (32mm), unbranded Bauhaus style manual winder. If I can find a similar styling at the size of about 38mm to 39mm, it's yesterday once more

          I'm glad it is finally getting the love that it deserves. My Stowas are some of my favorites and I can't imagine parting with any of them.

            Henry that watch is perfect. Noting superfluous, nothing missing. At that thickness, it is the very definition of a dress watch if, like me, you don't really care for gold watches.

            It is next on my wish list and since I have now fully and finally scratched the Russian watch itch, Stowa is looking more and more like the next 'phase' for me...

              I can recommend the Stowa to you Frank. It is probably one of the better deals available.

                  Congratulations! It's getting rarer that something so nice is available to the middle class anymore(see the Nomos post).

                    Oh I know. It seems even the "entry level" Nomos is now three times what I paid for this.

                      Try Aristo for nice and priceworthy Bauhaus watches, ca. 38,5mm, with ETA 2824-2 inside.
