    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.

    nice,do you have to do special order for these,I need to place my order for Stowa Airman.

    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 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 [​IMG])
