Default Stowa Prodiver vs. H2o Kalmar 6000m

If I have to choose one, I'd take the Stowa over any H2O every time. I own the Stowa Seatime Prodiver and 3 H2O's so I'm not opposed to having both.

I prefer the look of the h2o. Might be a bit thick but the dial is so much better in my opinion same with the bezel

If you have 2 Orca's and would go for the Stowa, that says a lot about Stowa. I've never owned a Stowa and I believe the 3 Orca's I've had are the best watches out there for the money. I now would love to try on a Stowa more than ever. Thanks for sharing your experience. My new Orca is my dream watch, perfect in every way, so anything surpassing it sounds super tempting.

As great as Stowa watches are, the H2O is more my style. Gimme a Kalmar 6000M

size matters

STOWA is classic

H2O is bigger


STOWA trademark commands a premium

CLEMENS is a contender for value king of the micros

You know my choice......

Stowa is nice but the H20 reigns supreme IMO.

The Kalmar 6k looks big in pitures but I assure you it wears superbly. I have the 8k and although thick I think the 6k would be a universal fit for all.


These 2 watches the styles are quite different.

Yeah tough decision. Chosen for battle even though they are quite different mostly because both are titanium and limited funds says I can't have both or at least can't buy them both soon unless I have a substantial watch blow out from current collection, which I am debating.

Kalmar looks awesome love the dial and was leaning a little that way but on the other hand wondering since I have an orca and a kalmar already if its a bit redundant in the collection. The stowa would be different since I've never owned one.

If I do grab a stowa I am torn by the more vesatile gray, the black with lime minute and the lime number James posted.

As I have two Stowas, and no H2Os in my collection, I must reinforce that, IMHO, you have made the correct decision
