Adding to the Stowa love-in. Stowa Marine Automatic. I ordered it on May 21st and it shipped on May 30th. I actually have to send it back to Stowa as the crown is unscrewing from the stem when I set the time in the forward direction. Stowa has offered to pay shipping both ways.

I do!

So many things to like about that one, especially the all-brushed look and the "slimmer lug" proportions.

I believe it's a true 42mm as well.

A lot of guys prefer the white/polar look... but for me, I prefer the matte black dial.

Another good modern interpretation by Rolex, IMHO.

I prefer the smaller Exp II. I'm not a big fan of any 6 digit reference Rolex.

I really like it, particularly with a black dial.  It was "In the running" when I was considering my last Rolex.  It wears pretty reasonably for a 42mm watch.  I went with the BLNR this time, but the a modern black dial ExII could be added someday.  Yours looks great enjoy it!  :cheers:

I really like the Exp II...so much so that I bought one last Nov. However it wore slightly too 'top-heavy' for my wrist & I traded it for a BLNR several weeks ago. 

 

If they ever come out w/ a 40mm ExpII w/ the orange hand I may have to purchase one.

Daniel Rose's Spring Restaurant. They even have availability tomorrow night. Absolutely fantastic.

Awesome -a few Stellas on the Eurostar - haven't done that in a while. You can't go wrong mooching around St Germain, treat yourself to a drink at one of the really high end hotels - Ritz or George V (just don't look at the bill), if you're a runner, it's great to get up and run along the Seine as you can't get lost, enjoy the local eye-candy, etc. Such a fun city. Enjoy.

Also, ice cream at Berthillon on the Ile St. Louis.


You're welcome.

Well, you were right about the cheese sandwich. Booked!

He's from Chicago, and absolutely unpretentious. My suggestion: ask if you can sit on the stools at the kitchen bar (may need to call ahead to request this)--watching the chefs at work right in front of you and getting personal attention from Daniel is definitely worth it. Simply one of the most stunning meals I've ever had. Do not skip the cheese course.

I don't know gopher, I've had some rough nights resulting from cheese courses...

We loved our dinner at Spring. Special, but not overdone or overwrought. Terrific service. Can't say enough good things about the place. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Le Chateaubriand is spectacular. Unpretentious but very clever execution of French classics.

Frenchie is also not to be missed if you can sneak in.
