German watchmaker, Stowa, recently introduced a new automatic timepiece to their Marine collection, the Marine Automatik A10 with date. Previously Stowa has offered this watch with a ETA 2824-2 movement, but now they have moved to an A10 movement (both are Swiss movements, but the A10 has some advantages over the ETA). It is not COSC certified, like is available on some of their watches. But it does have Geneva Stripes on the rotor and bridges, blued screws and a engraved rotor. This particular version comes with a date, although it is available without a date as well. I much prefer that date on this timepiece. The dial is made of 925/000 sterling silver, which looks excellent, especially with the beautiful German style blued steel hands. There is no luminous paint on the dial at all, as this is clearly a more traditional design. The case is stainless steel and measures 40 mm x 9.8 mm. Overall, I am very impressed with this timepiece, and especially how much you get for your money.
