Today I found a couple of watches that my wife has appropriated for herself.

Cartier Tank Basculante and Zenith Elite HW.
They're both hand wind. The Zenith is the only HW I have with a date.

The Basculante is great, I'm a big fan of the design. Rach2jlc has an amazing limited edition one in a steely grey.

Wow nice!! BTW, I love a curved end strap, I have several for my Speedy, the race pictured above and this one.



They don't seem contrived to me, just another option for straps.

This particular model was part of a limited series of 100 pcs. that was sold through Stowa's forum on watchuseek late last year but isn't shipping until now. I didn't get one in the original buy (IIRC the 100 watches sold out in less than 1 hour!) but was lucky enough to buy the reservation for this from the original buyer who didn't want it anyway.

I am in no way an expert in watches but wondering how does this watch compare (The Stowa) to the ARCHIMEDE Pilot? Price, features, future appreciation and quality?

I don't know Anon...That is why I am asking for the information from someone who might know. They do look about the same??

I am very satisfied with the quality of the Stowa and I think the quality is far better than the price implies so I have no hesitation in recommending them to others. FWIW, I own Rolex, Jaeger-LeCoultre and IWC watches as well and while I would say they are the all better finish and quality compared to the Stowa, they are also x 10-15 more expensive which they are IMO not really worth by any objective measures (but I am keeping them anyway )
