Oh god, I hate the Poang. Also, in response to the question asked earlier, no I do not own the Chieftan chair. I just appreciate and covet it.

They're lovely. This baby went for around $14K in 2003, in as-found condition. (The owners actually had had another, but they thought that the leather was so far gone that it was unsalvageable, so they threw it out...

I decided against the black version in the end because of the contrasting white date display, which doesn't look as good IMO.

Looks like a pretty big watch. Yes? I have to say, I'm getting a possible buying twinge from this line of watches.

I think is around 40mm. Sits a bit larger on the wrist. I found mine used so they are out there. They're just rare on the 2nd hand market.

Rambo, you have a Stowa Marine Original Roman right? How do the two compare size-wise on the wrist given that the Max Bill has virtually no bezel?

Yep. The Stowa is a larger watch, and sits larger on the wrist, but the Max Bill isn't tiny by any stretch of the imagination. The MB cuts a nice cross between looking large without being large.

Yeah, I'd say that the looks are a bit deceiving because the watch is all-dial; there is almost no bezel to speak of. The watch is 40mm but wears bigger than other 40mm watches with larger bezels.
post #1017 of 4013
Its hard for me to be subjective about this because I have a large wrist to begin with. The Stowa is my favorite watch @ 42. The MB looks about 40 on me even without the bezel. On somebody with a smaller wrist I could see it wearing larger than that.

I just bought a pair of these. George Mulhauser, made by Plycraft, circa 1964ish.
