    Baselworld 2009 - A pictorial with a little text but no lyrics >>>

    JohnF an me visited Jörg at Baselworld last Saturday, we just have been there in time to take over from some French WIS (Guy67 for example; nice to meet you Guy )



    We also met Francois-Xavier who is moderating on PuristSPro. Years ago I met Francois-Xavier in Cologne where he bought a Meistersinger. Since then we never met. Great to see you Francois, really enjoyed our short meeting.

    New to the family: Stowa Marine Black (Arabic dial / Roman dial)







    There is not much to add, case and movement are identical to the Marine Original we all know.

    Stowa Partito

    Jörg also presented a sample of the Partito so that we could see it in the flesh.
    Really a nice timepiece.



    Jörg mentioned that he made a limited edition for the japanese market with a handwinding ETA 2801. Now I am sad that I do not live in Japan.

    New to the family: Stowa Marine Rosegold



    The Marine Gold comes in a 18k (750/000) solid gold case. Up to know Jörg intends to fit the Gold with the Unitas we already know, quite possible that the Marine Gold will be fitted with a fine finished Durowe 7440.





    The dial will be silver 925/000, hands are blued (thermo process), a sapphire display back is a must have.



    The DUROWE 7440

    The last handwinding Durowe movement ever been produced was the Durowe 7438 so consequently the new Durowe will be the 7440. It is based on the Unitas 6498, the bridges have been designed and worked out by Jörg.



    Up to know the Durowe 7440 is a "living project", so changes are still possible, it is a ever changing process. Jörg`s aim is to achieve an increasing creation of value by producing more and more parts in-house in Germany. Jörg mentioned screws, jewels, fine regulation maybe up to a complete in-house movement production.



    As you may see from the attached pics a lot of modification and decoration can be done.







    In the future it could be possible that those movements will be sold to other manufacturers too. For the near future those movements will be exclusively used by Schauer and Stowa.

    Thank you for the pics. I am really excited for Jörg and his staff and the new movement. I like what they are doing.

    I think the black dial MO looks sweet.

    Great pictures! I am really impressed with the bridge design of the Durowe movement. I know it is a small detail, but it makes all the difference from the Unitas movement. I hope I can own one someday.
