    Do it yourself Stowa factory on ebay.de?

    Did anyone else see these listings on ebay.de?

    http://cgi.ebay.de/Komplette-Lagerau...QQcmdZViewItem

    My german is REALLY rusty after only one year of it in high school.

    But it looks like an entire warehouse of Stowa parts????

    and then 66 original chronographs in parts form? I could smell a limited edition brewing with these....

    makes me wish I had some free $$$ floating around. But I don't know where I would store that much stuff

    STOWA CONTENT -- I have a Marine Auto en route to me right now. Been lusting for one for a while, and have finally taken the plunge. While I am normally a diver/tool/sport watch kind of guy, something about the Marine series has always attracted me. And hey, every guy should own at least one dressy watch!

    A veritable treasure! The chronos have no movements, though! Just the assembled housing and the dials.
    Yes, storage space would be a problem.
    Somebody will make a nice pile of cash out of this!
    Soon, we will see them on Fleabay, no doubt!

    This stuff has been on ebay since month, the chrono cases have been also reported here on WUS.

    ....and then 66 original chronographs in parts form? I could smell a limited edition brewing with these....


    Find the movements first (Landeron 248), buy the cases afterwards otherwise you´ll have a nice little collection of useless cases and dials. A Valjoux will not fit, a Soprod 3030 module (on ETA 2824-2) will also not fit.
    Good luck though.

    Hello everybody,

    the material listed on Ebay is more or less worthless.

    you can´t find movements for these cases and dials.

    I was there to review the complete stock.

    Nice for the museum but not useful for new old stock watches.

    There are too many things you have to mix .-)

    This is not easy and makes no sence at all.

    If it is possible to get hold original movements and original hands (which have been used those days) it would be interesting.

    Best regards

    Thank you for adding to the thread Jorg and everyone!

    It just seemed like a HUGE quantity of stuff, and a very unusual ebay auction. I was pretty sure that Jorg would have already known about this stuff for sale

    It looked to me like there were movement boxes for the Landeron movements? I didn't realize that the movements were not included for that 66 chronographs.

    Anyhow -- I am anxiously awaiting the mail truck on Monday that is bringing me my Marine Auto. I have owned many German watches, and for some reason seem to always be attracted to German design and metalwork. It is some of the best in the entire world. Over the years, I have owned Glashutte, Muhle Glashutte, Sinn, and others -- but there is something special it seems about the Stowa Marine series. Wish mine was the COSC model, but at least it has the blued screws...so it is a little above the bog standard issue. I love the blued hands and the exquisite white dial. Pics on Monday.
