Two Stowas to Consider

Hand to God, I am not, by definition, a pilot's watch kind of dude.  The one that we have in the house has found itself welded to Wendy's wrist since it arrived.  

More on that in a later update.  But that got me thinking about pilot's watches.  It is a universally held belief that they are, by definition, black.  

But what if we thought outside of the "watch box"?

Well, at Stowa they do -

Stowa offer a few different dial hues for their flingers, but the two most beguiling to me are the white (above) and their now classic Ikarus -

Both are of stainless steel and measure 40 mm in diameter.  ETA 2824, optional hand-winding versions and blued hands.

In a world of black dials (and not that there's anything wrong with that), it's pretty cool to see something different out there.
