    Aha! The Soros watch!

    In this size the Aquanaut is a very elegant watch. The Jumbo on the other hand...

    Just got my Stowa Antea 365 on medium brown croc strap after a 3-4 month wait and I absolutely love it. Can't tell in these photos but the hands are blue. It's very subtle and elegant...everything my Sub isn't haha.

    With this and my recently acquired Sub I'm good for a while. Down the road I'd like to add an IWC to these two, but I plan on keeping these ones forever :D

    That Stowa is so damn beautiful
    Do any B&M stores carry Stowa watches? I'd like to buy an Antea, however I'd like to try them on as I'm not sure whether the 365 or 390 would lay better on my wrist.

    I don't believe you can get them from a store - just through Stowa.

    I have a 7" wrist and there's no way I would do the 390. Lots of discussion on this topic if you google it. You'll see lots of photos with the watch on various wrists.

    Good luck. Btw, Stowa's customer service is really great.

    How do you like the strap on the Stowa?

    I have some Nomos watches *which look very similar to the Antea) and was looking for a source for croc straps.

    That's probably the first Breitling that I've liked.

    pretty sure we just bought all or some of those, in a breitling lot we recently purchased. i havent do the research yet, are the vintage breitlings worth much?

    Pretty wide range of prices - from maybe $2k for the Premier chronos in steel in good shape to $5-7k for pristine, gold case ones

    +1 and probably the only Brietlings I like. Particularly the vintage Navtimer. I've seen some beautiful examples on TZ in the 2-3k range.
