first of all i want to say many thanks to all our customers this year!
It was a hard year because the watchmarket was very difficult - the most of the companies had problems to sell enough watches. (The last years have been - maybe - to easy? ;))
We have been able to keep our sales and in addition we have worked hard to make the brand stronger.
YOU as our customers are the most important - this are not just some easy written words, i always tell my staff that every single customer keeps STOWA alive (and by the way: keeps their working place!)
AND to keep or maybe to enlarge the brands image we have to take care about you, always with passion and still with a lot of engagement.
Sorry if this was not able 100% - of course sometimes small stories happen - but i am sure we have a satiesfied average of 99 % or more.
AND - if something happen we always try to help fast and good.
In the year 2017 we are faced the 90th anniversary of STOWA - and maybe some of you did´t know - STOWA´s production is uninterrupted since 1927 !
I overtook the company from the son of the founder and i have to promise him to keep the good name of STOWA alive.
I have to sign for it, if not i would not be able to buy the company !
Now we need a few days rest (till january 9th we are in holidays) and we wish you a happy new year and we hope that we can work next year - with your help - step by sep on the image of the brand.
There are alway things to improve and we are always open for your critic and needs and helps.
Bye for now
