Hi, I’ve been trying to get my hands on a Stowa FOLE without success. Is anyone aware of the German company ‘doko-feinmechanik’, which adapts the Unitas 6498-1 to central seconds? They can apparently also add swan-neck regulation, hacking features and decoration including hand engraving, gold plating, perlage and laser etching.
The following article states that they provide custom orders from 25 unit minimums starting at 400 euros each.
How many forum members would be interested in the proposed watch?:
Stowa Flieger A-dial in 41mm case.
Unitas cal. 6498-1 central seconds modification + swan-neck regulator + hacking.
(I believe the FOLE houses a modified cal 6497-1 with a unique hacking mod. CS stops at 12 o’clock)
If there’s enough interest, I’d be keen to hear what Jörg Schauer thinks.
