    Generic watch on eBay listed as "Stowa Flieger No Logo Limited Edition" ???

    Has anyone else seen this on eBay?? I don't think this even qualifies as counterfeit because it doesn't say "Stowa" on the actual watch anywhere.

    Stowa Flieger Watch Diamond Crown Subsecond 117 1000 No Box No Papers Running | eBay

    No Stowa branding on movement or caseback. The caseback actually says "0123456", lol. Hands are too short. Perhaps most obvious of all, isn't Stowa's subdial at 6 o'clock on the model this claims to be? I don't see anything that resembles the Limited Edition Stowa Flieger I've seen pictures of.

    Even with my limited knowledge of Stowa Flieger models this looks to be a generic watch. And surprise - no box or papers. Supposedly on consignment.

    Definitely a fake one. The movement is an Asian Unitas 6497. There is not a Stowa with the sub dial at the 9 o'clock position.

    This is the real no logo LE:

    Phhhhhhh.
    Not a Stowa. A complete balls-up, watch and "story". Asked my consigliere

    numbered 117/1000
    and the 0123456... Dead giveaway. Most (if not all) Parnis watches feature the same tell-tale numbers. I know because I own one

    Some images I found around the forum:

    On the side of the watch it is said that it is number 117/1000 If this is true I don’t know. IE: will they stop production when 1000 is reached???
    On the back there is: 0123456, YES I CAN COUNT! I learned that in elementary school.
    Filed a ebay report. Urge any other ebay users to do the same so the listing quickly gets flagged and removed.

    You know Stowa has hit the big time when fakes start appearing...there's another thread right now where the case and dial look legit (at least IMO), but the movement doesn't look right at all.

    The cases are offered for sale on the bay regularly.
    Most <45mm cases for any "6497 case" search on there have that number on the case side.
    That's why, when building this watch, I bought case from Ofrei(no numbers) plus it's smaller in diameter.

    Take any watch you see on eBay with a grain of salt. Tons of fakes on that site.
