    Authentic Stowa?

    I just received this vintage Stowa off the 'bay and am concerned that there appears to be nothing on the movement identifying it as a Stowa. This is my 1st vintage Stowa, does this appear authentic? Did I get taken?

    It is authentic. Typical watch out of the early 60ties I guess, maybe a bit earlier.
    You got a Stowa Parat with an OS 1065 automatic movement;
    not all Stowa watches had Stowa marked movements or rotors.

    Specs:

    Osco 1065 (Otto Schlund, back into the watch business as Schlund watches)
    automatic movement, 25 jewels
    diameter: 11.5''' =25.94mm
    18.000 beats/h
