Stowa delivers when they deliver. Sometimes you get lucky and the watch comes in a timely fashion. Sometimes you get unlucky and it takes a long time. As for those who are complaining about the wait times consider this: A small operation producing a small batch of super high quality products for a super reasonable price has three choices, have a waiting list, increase production and put quality at risk, or raise the price. Adding 200 Euros to the price of most of these watches would likely drive down the wait times. Or producing another 1000 watches a year (I believe they make around 2500 a year now, that could be wrong.) But if they did either of those most of you wouldn't be happy. So, buy a Stowa and wait or don't. Your choice.
