    Stowa find!

    Hey Cats,

    Found this at the Salvation Army, not the type of Stowa I want to add to my collection but for what I paid I'll take it. PUW 560 movement, the watch is in very very good condition. Thinking either trade it or try to find a case that will fit the movement and dial....which by the way is keeping excellent time.

    A bit of a struggle on this one, do I case it or not?? However it came as a pocket watch originally and it being near new in condition especially at being 31yrs old I can't help but think stripping it is not the right thing to do.

    I know if it was in a wrist case I'd wear it quite a bit especially being an admirer of Stowa watches.

    Wow, this is a tough one for me



    Peace,
    Preston

    I don't understand this post. What did you buy? What are you asking?

    You should repost over at the Stowa forum, by the way.

    Nice catch! Looks like it's in really good condition. I would definitely recommend against recasing the watch. With a nice watch chain, it might be a good super formal dress watch to put in your vest. And yes, do post your find in the Stowa for​um; lots of the members there would be thrilled to see pictures of your find.

    I understand you have a Stowa PW, made around 1979, and containing a fairly common German wrist watch movement?

    And asking if i is OK to use the movement in a Wrist watch?

    Imho it is a nice PW, not too common.
    if I was you, I would keep it as it is, and find another movement to use in the wrist watch case.

    Why recase it and ruin what is already such a cool piece? Take it for what it is! Not often do you see a pocket watch, destroying it by recasing it would be plain wrong, bro!
