Thanks. That's why I was a little confused. :?
Time to be even more confused :?

Remembering my "with friends" piccie, I thought the size was fairly close to the C50/C5 so I've dug out the tape measure. To my reckoning, mine is the Antea 390 version i.e. 39mm diameter, 9.2mm depth i.e. closest to the C50. It would be interesting if JD's is a different size :shock: .

For the comparison:

Seriously? When I saw the offer, I was unsure which size they were selling. I was worried the 35/36 sizes would be too small for my wrists. Had I known it was the 39mm I'd have gone for it.

I know what you're getting at. The "offer" was sketchy on any real details. To be honest, when I ordered, I didn't know whether it was the hand wound or the automatic or what the case size was. It was the design/look - Nomos'esque as others have observed - and with a Nomos being on my "want" list - that hooked me in. Plus, at that relatively ridiculous price, the fact that they were disappearing at a rate of knots caused the Buy button to be hit mucho pronto.

Would I still have bought at the full whack price ?... now there's a difficult question. Ignoring what I know now, I doubt I would have pulled the trigger just from browsing the web. With hindsight of a) the Stowa buying experience - couldn't rate it higher, b) handling/seeing the actual product and c) the smug feeling of having snaffled a bargain, I will be keeping an eye out for future bargains :thumbup:
