I've been more into timepieces for a while now, so much so that I don't really buy clothes anymore (except for the occasional white tee to replace the funky ones) and instead save up for whatever watch catches my attention. So far i have 5 timepieces in total, msrp ranging from 60 bucks (casio g shock) to approximately 2.5K (sinn 756). My favorite watch of the bunch, however, is my Stowa Antea KS. Aside from kinda shitty water resistance, it is IMO the perfect watch. The lines of the case and lugs, the beautifully printed Bauhaus-styled silver dial, the heat-tempered blued hands, and the beautifully decorated top grade hand winding movement all for under 700 USD (before the recent price hike). The dial is silver, and changes color depending on the light. IMO, it looks best under daylight. That's when the dial really shines. Also, the seconds subdial really gives the watch a nice visual twist, something that IMO is lacking in the automatic version (although the day date version is stunning in person). The printing on the dial is perfect, much better than any of my Sinn watches, and i love the way the numbers flip depending on their position on the dial. The heat tempered hands are a beauty. depending on the light and the angle, they're either a stark blue or black. much nicer than chemically blued or painted hands. The peuseux 7001 is a workhorse of a movement, and this one is top grade and heavily decorated. It's a pleasure waking up in the morning, giving the watch a few winds, and then going on about your day. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Schauer in New York earlier this month and got to try on other stowa time pieces and some pieces from his eponymous collection, and they really are some of the nicest I have ever seen. overall, german watches seem to have more interesting designs than their swiss counterparts. The following pictures aren't mine, but they're some of the nicest i have ever seen for the Antea KS.
