I am new to this forum and I would just like to say it is a pleasure to be here and I am very excited about the Stowa brand! I am just getting back into collecting/admiring watches and have owned quite a few different Swiss brands over the years. One of the reasons for my exodus from collecting was that the Swiss watches were getting ridiculously priced and out of my reach. I am glad to say that I believe I found a Gem when I learned of this brand and it has opened my eyes to a whole new world of watches. I have been lurking around this forum for some time and I like the level of maturity found here and also how Jörg participates in the discussions(when he has the time). Just today I put my name on the list for the serial FO. Before the FO arrives I plan on buying either an MO or an auto flieger.
