    To COSC or not to COSC...

    OK... i know this is a well-worn topic on here, but ive read a few conflicting stories about the value of the COSC upgrade if youre buying a Stowa.

    I've recently ordered a Flieger Auto with Date and upgraded the movement.

    Have i wasted my money, or are there any extra features that i get with the upgraded movement - apart from the certificate - now that blued screws are standard?

    As ever, your expert advice is needed....

    To go for a COSC movement or not comes near to a very personal decision. I´d like to invite you to use our search function here. Typing "COSC" will lead you to 4 pages of COSC related stuff.

    Hi Mike

    Thanks for that... will try it. Dont know if anyone else has it, but the search function sort of gets hidden by the stowa banner above.

    Cheers mike - just found it. As usual your posts helped answer the query.

    From the point of view of the aesthetics and the upgraded parts, im really pleased ive gone for the COSC option with my Airman Auto - even if COSC accuracy isnt really an issue with a standard STOWA. I'm not planning to re-sell it, its just going to be my watch for the next X or so years, so i want to make sure im content that ive gone for the best that i can afford.

    Cant wait for the package to arrive from Engelsbrand!

    With Jorg's watches, I upgrade the movement. When I have the chance I normally do with other makers also.

    I've owned 3 Stowa's and none of them were with COSC movements and yet all three were within +2spd.

    Most of Jörgs watches have displayback wich makes It nice to have the beutifully finished cosc-movement.

    The standard movement Is not something worth showing IMO.

    Can you post a pic of the COSC one then cause the non one is already nice looking with the blue screws.

    Here you go! I would never compare the finish of the cosc with the standard.
