    Re: New manual movement SW215-1

    I'm not sure this is a modification that is done when asked specifically by a customer. I think it is something that they're doing in general with all their non-date SW215 Fliegers. At least that's what I understood from their response to my query. Either way, I'm happy that it will be a two position crown.

    I've also asked them to ship the watch after they come back from their vacations. Long wait ahead for me.

    Re: New manual movement SW215-1

    Hello everybody,

    justa a short message.

    1 - we will add next year some models also with hand winded movement Selitta SW215-1.

    Already it is possible to order it for some models.

    We just received casebacks for Antea 365, Antes 390, Partitio, Flieger and Marine Automatic as well for the new Flieger Klassik Sport.

    We have had many request the last years and we often offered the ETA 2801.

    But for quantity reasons (Eta reduces the quantity year for year) we have to order now Selitta movement SW 215-1, which has the date.

    But we also received the "setting lever" for the non date version ,)

    So now problem at all for those who dn´t like three positions for the crown if a watch have no date.

    Please see attached pictures.

    The only difference is the setting lever - which has two "noses" if it is a date version and one "nose" if i is the non date version ;)

    in the new Onlineshop we launch end of january you can get easily a option to choose this feature for those watches we basically offer.

    Best regards Jörg Schauer

    Pardon me if this seems obvious, but I assume in addition to using the two-position setting lever for the crown on the non-date dial models using the Sellita SW215-1, the actual date wheel and related advancing mechanism are also removed from the movement. Correct? My understanding is that this is a simple modification. Thanks.

    Well, after making me feel like January would never come soon enough so they could ship me the watch, they shipped me the no logo, no date, 40mm hand-wound SW215-1 sporting watch on Friday and it landed in my dirty little paws yesterday. Beautiful watch. I don't know really what else to say, except, gorgeous watch.

    Thanks Team Stowa for making this happen! I can now wear it on my December vacation.

    I believe so. Jörg may be able to confirm this.

    I thought when i got my omega moon watch winding it would be a pain but it's just getting use to doing it and after that it fine.But i always wonder if the seal in the crown would ware out from all that winding but a thing if serviced it would be no issue of water getting in the watch when it rained out well i had it on.I think all that turning of crown might ware it.
