They are GTG - a lot of quality for the price point. They have done in-house movements etc.. If you like them you can't really go wrong for a mid-level Swiss watch (UK company with Swiss production). I'm not a huge fan of the new logo though.

This is my only quartz, wanted one "grab and go" watch

Giving it a shot...

Just picked this up a couple of weeks ago. A German watch to go with the German cars:

Not that I've seen. At this point, I'm used to right-sided crowns although I would like to try out a watch with a left-side crown for a few days.

It's interesting. I bought a new white dial Rolex ExpII in 2016 and now I have the GO. The difference in cost-to-me amounted to paying $500 more for the GO. I really like my Polar Explorer, it's a great watch with really nice detailing. But for the price difference, the GO is just so much nicer in the details. The movement isn't technologically amazing in the GO, but the detailing through the case back is superb---it looks way more expensive than it should be. It will remain the only dressy watch I can own---it fits a really nice balance between cost, styling

Unlike where Germans position themselves in the car world, they are a relative bargain in the watch world. I'm sure you know this, owning a Stowa. Definitely a really nice piece as well. How long have you owned it and how has it treated you? Any pics?

True unless you look at a lange and sohne then they are I think better than the trinity. I've had the stowa for over 5 years I think and have had no issues. This is only image could find. Along with my 2 favorites a 1970 pre moon 220 bezel speedmaster and a 1965 twinjet 806 navitimer. I usually daily my modern seamaster 300.

Really nice collection. I like the Stowa--it's got a really classic look to it. Reminds me a bit of an Alpina Startimer Classic I had for a while. Also, really like the Omegas and Breitling. How has the Breitling treated you? I have a TH Monza, but I think I might want to sell that at some point for another chrono. The one thing that bothers me with the Monza is that whenever I operate the pushers, it feels like I'm about the break something inside the watch. I'm looking for something with more of a sturdy movement. Prior to the Monza, I had a Hamilton Jazzmaster Chrono, but that also felt a little too fragile. I consider Breitling to offer some really excellent chronos, like the navitimer.
