Watch looks good and fits well. A bit smaller than my more modern Stowa Seatime and Prodivers but I like the feel of this one a bit better.
Original Bracelet which I have found to have been used by several brands in the late 60s.
Clasp is easy to use. Re-sizing was pretty simple even for an old guy like me.

At 12mm in height the watch is not overly bulky as many are today.

Final impressions of the watch..... if you can find one like this and Stowa appeals to you, buy one.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
