    Just won this one and need some help identifing

    I know it is a Stowa Seatime but no idea the age of it, movement or if the bezel even moves. Right now it seems it does not.

    thanks

    Re: Just won this one and need some help identifing

    Thank you for the information. When it arrives I will probably flip it as I was informed that this watch is quite rare and even the Stowa museum may not have one. The dial is lovely. Bezel shows minor wear, but nothing that really hurts the eye. Only the crown has "turned yellow" - either it was chromed once, and has completely worn off, or - more likely - it was replaced by a yellow one. Maybe it was also intended this way, as the print on the bezel is also yellow.

    I don't think it's so rare. There are at least 2 other forum members who own similar models (there are some pictures also on page 2)

    And there was an identical model with imprint „Pallas“ as shown at uhrerbe.com.

    That's the same watch I have.
    The bezel should rotate - unless someone fixed the bezel with glue to the case. My collection of vintage STOWA diver watches consists of about 30 pcs. and all their bezels can be moved around.
    The bezel is hold by the pressure of a round spring (made of thin wire) between glass and bezel.
    Tomorrow I will shoot some pics and show what you should do,

    Hello time-lord,

    I just arranged an album,
    - my watch, bezel's triangle at "12" Pic. 1
    - my watch, bezel's triangel at "6" : It rotates! Pic. 2
    - same back lid as on your watch Pic. 3
    - movement Pic. 4
    - comparison with another one of my Seatimes: Identical case and glass and bezel fixture Pic. 5
    - bezel levered off (by a knife's blade) Pic.6
    - bezel and mounted spring Pic. 7
    - bezel and dismounted spring Pic. 8
    - watch and bezel together again Pic. 9
    - some of my spare bezels Pic. 10
    Here you can find the album: https://c.web.de/@335023869452621298...RwSYbgb_J-EUhQ
    Any questions left?

    Thank you and thanks to Mike and the others who responded. It helped put a time frame and history on this watch for me. Now to find a bezel for it. I wrote to stowa about a replacement but I was told they do not carry them any longer for watches from this period. Well, it is vintage so bumps and bruises are ok like most of we old folks. Watches age too. I did come across this here at WUS written by Mike 11 years ago.

    Why? Did you look at my album and follow the steps?
    Take the bezel off of your watch, clean the case and replace the bezel with a correctly fitting spring.
    Or do you want to make up your watch's face with another bezel?
