Steinhart's Finally

Post by Mr Rick »

Gnomon got a new shipment of Steinhart watches today.

I've been patiently waiting for one of these.

That's lovely, Rick. It's the only Steinhart I really like, but it's a bit big for that type of watch...for me at least.
That is along the lines of what I'd like to see CW produce in a 36-38mm manual wind! :thumbup:

Me too. But I couldn't wait any longer. At least 44mm is better then their 47mm version. :D

Very nice, Rick. I do like the Roman numerals, especially the use of "IIII" and not "IV". :clap:

Nice, but not as nice as the Stowa.

Cheers,

yes there is a differential, but I don't necessarily agree :) . I had my clear out because I found that some of mine "wore off" in terms of appeal. I got some of them as great bargains too, but often they were also compromises. I got a Bell&Ross vintage 126 on a great discount, when to be honest I fancied an IWC Pilot chrono at about 1k more expensive. It never felt right and whenever I saw the IWC it just added insult to injury :lol: . In the end I lost serious money on it and still have no IWC!

Incidentally I'm biased I suppose because I have the Stowa MO.

Cheers,
Jack.

I would say that makes you definitely biased, especially given the fan-boy nature of Stowa fans!! :wink:

:clap: Yes, I know what you mean! Actually I only have the one though, but I have to say I do like the Stowa's generally. They seem to take ages to bring new ones out!! :?

A bit like Kate Bush with her Albums. I'm quite a fan of Kate as well! :)

Cheers,
Jack.

I'm rather easy to please, and with the current state of my collection I'll only be wearing it about once a month. So every time is almost like the first time. :D

Yes, I've noticed that. I hope mine has the upgrade. You never know as it's coming from Gnomon.
