After all they all tell time, the only difference is how they look.

    What seems to be happening is that people are ranking "tiers" of companies according to their average price range, and that metric has little relation to the actual quality of their individual timepieces.
    The OP asked us to rank them (the two companies anyway) in those tiers. That's what this particular thread is about, fair or not. It's a gross oversimplification, granted. But it's a fun diversion.

    You can't rank Stowa with Longines, Stowa is relatively new compared to longines. Longines is also more well known than stowa, almost as much as omega. Longines and Omega have have spread their products in jewellers all over the world, while Stowa is known mainly to watchmakers, like IWC.

    I agree with you on heritage and fame but OP's criteria were "quality, details and finish".

    Stowa MO and Longines Master Series are rubbing shoulders in my wishlist in the quality/classic/blue/white slot... maybe one day... where is that lottery ticket?

    I'd have them at 3+

    I have seen only one personally, in a local watch seller, used. But based on extensive reports on WUS and many many pics, and reviews, i'd have to say Stowa compares more equally to an Omega. The only thing Omega has over them is brand recognition.

    My opinion.
    You should really take a good look at the Omega line before making the statement "The only thing Omega has over them is brand recognition. " Let's see, Co Axil escapement, Cal 851 chrono, touribillon etc....... Stowa is an excellent watch, it's not an Omega however

    I have a couple of each, and honestly, would rank the Stowas and Sinns both as solid 3's.

    I am factoring in design, quality, and functionality. Not considering how long someone had been around. It can be a factor, but I am interested in what they are doing today.

    Just my 2 cents.
