Experts of both Bauhaus moderation and Flieger usefulness, Stowa has recently delivered two blacked-out watches in restricted numbers. With the Flieger Verus Black Forest, Stowa gives this cutting edge 40-millimeter pilot’s watch a complex covertness; with the Antea 1919 Black Forest, the German watch house is praising their Bauhaus roots, yet the actual watch turns completely upward to-the-minute in black.
Both watches house a top-grade ETA 2824-2 programmed development, liberally adorned and showed through a sapphire back window. The individual chronic number (x/200 for the Flieger; simply x/100 for the Antea) is highlighted unmistakably in black on the rotor. Stowa has always offered lovely development medicines, particularly great at Stowa’s sensible prices.
Both cases are tempered steel with a fine dot impacted treatment and black covering. The Flieger Verus estimates 40 x 48.6 millimeters with an unassuming stature of simply 10.2 millimeters, while the Antea Black Forest is given in Stowa’s flexible 39 x 47.8-millimeter case. Tie width is 20 millimeters on the two watches, and the two cases give 50 meters of water resistance.
The dial markings of the Flieger Verus Black Forest are done in Super-LumiNova BGW9, which looks white by day and glows blue around evening time. The hands get a similar treatment, and the impact against the all-black colorway is hitting with the lights on or off. Stowa offers purchasers a rendition of the Flieger Verus BF with a date gap, yet it’s difficult to envision intruding on this completely even dial just to sort out what day it is.
The Antea 1919 Black Forest has no lume; in any case, the dial’s white line markers and stick hands are moderation represented. I thought I’d seen enough Antea colorways to completely get a handle on this Bauhaus show-stopper, yet altogether black it sheds its twentieth Century emanation and looks more current than most current watches. This model foregoes a date gap option.
These Black Forest editions come on black calfskin lashes with black sewing and a marked, blacked-out pin-clasp. These lashes complete the Black Forest look, yet the two watches appear to be anxious to investigate a wide range of tie materials and shadings, which are sure to jump out against the black cases.
For the individuals who aren’t drawn to the Black Forest look, the Antea 39 and the Flieger Verus are accessible in a variety of colorways and with various client configurable choices through Stowa’s website.
Both watches are accessible straightforwardly from Stowa for around $860 (€747.90). Stowa
