Stowa Antea 390
Besides Switzerland, Japan and Germany are watch powerhouses as well. The later makes some amazing timepieces in both the tool and dress categories. These Stowa automatic watches have bled hands, a classic no frills dial and a date at the 6'oclock region rather than the classic 3. A simple silver case with sharp lines and a classic black leather band rounds out what I'd call a perfect segway piece for the newcomer.
