STOWA Marine Original

Posted under Stowa

        The name of STOWA is a name with resonance even though it hasn’t been for a very long time a player on the market of watch manufacturing. The timepieces introduced by this brand maintain a distinctive design, having as core values individualism and originality at its best. The simple design lines proposed by STOWA have reached the taste of the public thirsty for subtlety, discreet timepieces and non-opulent designs. Established back in 1927, STOWA has made its way through all those brands preoccupied in selling no matter what, in capturing trends and in designing timepieces only for the fashion-victims, STOWA wanted more, it wanted to create a name for itself.

        Renowned for its collections that indeed aim at keeping it original, STOWA is nowadays regarded as a professional brand of watches that has focused on creating timepieces for the average people, who do not have thousands of dollars to spend on a timepiece. Most of the watches proposed by STOWA have reasonable prices, ranging from 500 euros to 1000 euros. Amongst the famous collections of the STOWA brand we can mention the Marine line, the Sport Watch Collection, the Antea line or the Exima Collection. Most of the timepieces included in these collections maintain the simple appearance, the only differences being in terms of functionality.

        The watch that has managed to draw a lot of attention in 2007 is the new STOWA Marine Original Watch, an impressive timepiece made sailors and sailing activities.

        The simple design of the STOWA Marine Original Watch resembles the one approached by the other collections introduced by STOWA and it features a stainless steel case measuring 41 mm in diameter, being 10.80 mm thick. This roundly shaped case is connected smoothly with the strap through two lugs made of the same material.

        The dial is white and uses black Arabic numerals to indicate the hours. The hours and minutes are shown with the help of blue steeled hands, while the seconds use a sub-dial located at 6 o’clock. The dial is very organized in terms of detailing and it provides perfect legibility, being also inscribed with the STOWA logo under 12 o’clock and with the “made in Germany” inscription in the lower side of the case.

        The STOWA Marine Original Watch uses a hand wound Unitas 6498 movement that provides the standard functions of time, the hours, minutes and seconds indications.

        According to your taste for straps and bracelets, don’t be surprised if you’re asked to pay for an extra fee, if you choose a different strap model than the standard one. A black leather strap with white thread will cost you an extra 60 euros, while one made of crocodile leather available on brown, light brown or black will cost you an extra 110 euros.

        The price for this STOWA Marine Original Watch starts from 790 euros, and it can reach up to 1000 euros, depending on the strap variations.
