    Here is my first Stowa, so far timekeeping has been spot on!

    BTW, which picture hosting site do you iphone owners use? I had Droid before I switched over and it had option to upload pictures to picasa and so far only site I found to be working is imageshack. Any way to use Picasa with iphone?

    Thanks, it took me a lot of WUS sales forum browsing to land her.


    Thanks! It survived a deployment with me so it will always be my number 1.

    For lack of desire to find any better alternative, I use the free mobypicture app on my iPhone to upload. Then I just direct image link from my account on the website

    Edit: great Stowa. I have a Marine and I love it

    Sweet! I have been thinking about getting a Stowa for a while, probably the Marine Original.

    With the Durowe movement?

    Ya know, I thought about it, but probably just going to stick with the Unitas. To be honest, I really just don't see the value in the upgrade. And really, I find the decoration on the Unitas to be more aesthetically pleasing than the decorated Durowe movement. Further, I would like to upgrade the Stowa to a Dornblueth 99.1 (or maybe 99.2), eventually, so I would rather not invest too much in it! Now, with that said, if the Durowe had raised numerals... then that might be a different story.

    ^ The 6498 is an excellent movement. The only drawback is that it is loud to the point where it's annoying to leave on a night stand.

    My Oris GMT. Not as big as some of the others in the range which suits my slimmer wrists.
