You may know watches better then me but the bottom picture through the case-back shows the Incabloc shock absorber - worth researching if not familiar, but very cool picture.

Nice! I like the subtlety. Overstated watches are getting too popular.

these two watches have been paired against each other for quite some time, here is a great side by side review.

Just to note, the review is older, and my antea 390 has the soprod a10 movement.

I just threw it on a milanese watch, and WOW it looks great!!!!

The link didn't work, but I can search WUS to check it out! I like the clean look. One of my colleagues is a designer and he's always drooling over that style :-)

Seriously? You post how great it looks and DON'T include a photo. The English teacher must be getting to your brain!

To the OP, the last picture in your first post....is that a stock photo? It says museum edition on it and your other back photo doesn't show this. Just wanted to know what the back actually looks like on your watch.

Likes: I like the clean styling and size very much

Dislikes: that heinous metal link band (looks like it comes as an optional band), and overall too "old fashioned" for my taste

Congrats regardless of what I think! Its a beautiful time piece and I hope it brings you years of enjoyment.

Good catch! yeah its a stock photo. I wanted to show you guys a better picture of the decorated movement. I was on the same page as you with the bracelet for like 3 months, and I perused watchuseek to really get an idea of how it would look..and it started to grow on me so yesterday I swapped it out. It gives the watch a 1930's retro feel..... Im also looking for a nice chestnut ostrich strap for it, we shall see if I can find anything!

Saw the SS mesh bracelet on the IWC portofino about a year ago and at first thought why.
But now I think those mesh bracelets are very cool.

I think im going to throw this up for sale on Watchuseek, or trade it in for a breitling...well offset the costs for one. I was going to trade my tag and this in for one @ torneau but I feel like theyre going to RAPE me on the trade in.

Nice piece, has some characteristics of the Nomos brand of watches. Are Stowa and Nomos related by chance?
