    Does anybody know what is causing the long lead time for the FO serial?

    As the subject says, does anybody know what is causing the long lead times for the FO serial model? All the other Stowa models are available within a couple of months including the MO, so it can't be a shortage of Unitas 6497 movements - so is it the cases, dials, hands, crystals, etc? I read that Stowa had issues with delivery of the golden bridge for the LE model, but the serial model doesn't have that.

    Or has Stowa just been overwhelmed by orders for the FO, possibly by those who missed out on the LE model?

    Hello Taipan,

    6498(small second at 6 o'clock position) on MO is different from 6497(small second at 9 o'clock position). Furthermore, the movement on FO is a modified 6497 with indirect center second.

    I guess availability of modified 6497 could be a reason of the long lead time.

    Best regards,
