    Chances of getting a Stowa MO black?

    I finally made my mind up between this and the steinhart, then when i'm away to purchase i notice that delivery time is set of 'late october', which doesn't fill me with confidence. Is there a problem with Stowa currently as i notice all the models have the same delivery timescale?

    Stowas are well worth the wait.

    The only "problem" is that the watches are great, and they sell at a great price. So their small operation is flooded with orders. I wish I had that problem, lol.

    You patience would be rewarded I can assure you.

    No problem. This is how Stowa works. If you gotta have it now, then you gotta go to the secondary market. The good news is that you can still get in on the MO LE 2 over at Watchbuys, which will also be delivered in October if the stars line up as they are supposed to.

    [edit: just checked Watchbuys' site and it says MO LE 2 is sold out--you might see if you can get on a waiting list though if you're really into it.]

    Whip them an email (address is on the site). I'm sure they'll be able to give you an idea of the wait.

    I've got the same watch on order. I'm going to pick it up though.

    Dear argee1977,

    our current delivery schedule now is October caused by a lot of backorders and new orders and a few projects we will launch after the summer holidays. (which are from 1th July to 23rd July)
    We always try to give you an estimate delivery time on your order.

    I hope that we can solve the problem of delays in the future; I am already looking for 1-2 new watchmakers.


    Best regards

    That's good news.
    But, don't you agree, 1 - 2 used watchmakers( experienced ) are even better??
