    Very cool. Wish they still made them like that.

    Only one that still does is Laco

    Laco makes a good tribute. But the movement quality and finishing of this one is on a level far beyond almost anything made today.
    Out of the five original manufacturers, I believe the Stowa/Unitas is by far the most elaborate.
    And it is actually one of my most precise timekeeping "wristwatches " in my collection.
    At 55mm it is borderline as a wristwatch, and not rather a wall clock......

    There's one on Ebay right now, but it has broken off lugs on one side of the case. Would be worth restoring maybe. for the right person.

    Cool & interesting post. I love the look of the comically small Nato strap on that mammoth watch!

    If one could manage to find a replacement case for it then I guess it could be a worthwhile project, or alternatively use it as a wall-clock.....

    And Mitka does not have the largest of wrists either... The watch takes a 27mm strap originally.
