This is my second Stowa. I originally was undecided on what Stowa model I wanted. I wavered between the Antea Creme and the Marine Original. I first went for the Antea Creme and have been totally happy but, I still wanted the Marine Original. An opportunity came up on one of the forums and I bought it. I wanted the mechanical Unitas 6498 movement and I also wanted a dress look so when I saw this for sale I had to have it.

This is the Stowa Marine Original Roman Numerals:

PROS: Everything from the 41mm size which does play bigger, to the blued hands on front and the movement in back.
It has a crisp white dial and the strap is very soft and comfortable. The look is better in person.

CONS: Really none so far. This is a Non-hacking movement and it is my understanding that this movement with small seconds is built that way. I am not bothered by it at all.

Overall Impression: Keeper!
