    Interesting? Marine Automatic on Ebay ...

    Seller says: "The watch is no longer in production and in pristine condition.."

    Is this an Asian Market Marine Auto that never travelled west? Not sure what he means by "no longer in production." The hands appear to be Flieger style without lume (hollow).

    This very version is not available anymore.
    On the one hand it' without date and what makes it special are the airman hands.
    However I've seen that combination before and imho at least a few may exist.

    Edit: It's a 36mm case as the picture posted below shows.

    Ultimately why someone is willing to pay at least $850 for that watch I myself cannot understand.

    WJ, somewhere back in the early posts of this forum I think that watch has appeared before. IIRC it was a special custom order (back when Stowa was still able to accomodate this) for someone who wanted a smaller Marine with flieger hands. Go figure.

    BTW that watch has been on eBay in one listing or another for quite a while now.

    With only one pic and especially without a movement shot they can't convince me to send any money to Asia.

    How about this one in the U.S.

    Can't claim to know much about older Stowas but I would not be surprised if that one have its origin in Ukraine, at current "configuration".

    Why everybody always blame Ukraine. It never had even a watch factory.
