    Just received a Partitio white...

    I recently ordered a stowa partitio handwinding model.
    It came with a see through back so I am quite sure that it is handwinding model.
    However it came with an automatik on the dial.
    I contacted stowa and they said they will swap it for me.

    My concern is it does look quite rare probably the only one in the world.

    Should I just hold on to this?

    or should I send it back to Stowa for dial swap?

    That would just bug me. I'd get them to sort it.

    Ditto. It's wrong. It might be rare, but so is a brand new black BMW with one red door. Doesn't make it attractive :)

    I mean you can keep it if you want, but it seems pretty ridiculous to me. I'm guessing the novelty will soon wear off and then you're stuck with a watch that has an obvious mistake showing. FYI, if you ever decide to sell this will very likely significantly diminish your resale value. A mistake like that would 100% turn me, and I'm guessing the vast majority of prospective buyers, off from ever purchasing.

    In ten years when you decide to sell it........it might be difficult to find a buyer.
    Kind regards

    +1. Not only that, but there might be some that will even question the watch's authenticity given this muck up. Best to return it and have Stowa make things right.

    And the German word for handwinding (Handaufzug) is much cooler.
