My first "real" watch... Stowa Marine Automatic. Stowa's customer service was top notch! I think the Marine Auto makes for a great dress watch. My next purchase most likely will be a Chronograph... perhaps the Archimede Pilot Chrono? I don't think my small wrist can support a watch greater than 42mm. Any recommendations on a Gator/Croc grained leather band? Nice! I just got notice that mine has finished production and is ready for payment. So and . I picked up a Di-Modell Alligator Louisiana and its really nice. Well worth the money. WatchBoys and Camille Fournet are big on here as well.
