    Re: New STOWA Box >> Official STOWA Information ;)

    The new wooden box seems better to me than the previous box they use.

    Only that it looks too plain, it might look more elegant with a Stowa logo on it. The paper where they place their brand name will surely get worn out in time.

    Without their name in the box itself, it will just be another wooden box in the future.

    i received my 3rd and 4th stowa today. they arrived in both styles of boxes.

    my first impression, from reading this forum announcement, was that it was a slick attempt at trying to justify a cheaper box.

    use locally-sourced, renewable-material to construct a box? great idea.
    stick 4 little pieces of said wood around a compressed fiberboard box? cheap idea.

    that said, in the flesh, the box feels nice and hefty.
    and honestly, it's a box... i put it back in the original packaging and keep it in the storage... in the eventual day i'll ever need to sell the watch again. (hasnt happened).
    i've have watches from omega, nomos, chronoswiss, etc....... some of the boxes are nicer. some of the boxes are far worse.


    in the end .... its a box that sits out of sight, out of mind, in perpetuity.
    beteen the metal case and this new wooden box, my ultimate conclusion is that i couldnt care any less.
    plarmium and Dooberfloober like this.

    Hate the compressed wood box. Looks cheap. Feels cheap. What were they thinking.

    I wrote to complain after realizing that people were getting their new Stowa watches in the metal box. They basically said too bad. All new watches now come with the metal box again. I must have gotten one of the last batch of the wood box.

    I just saw this thread for the first time.

    As an architect and designer, I absolutely LOVE this box.
    The materials, construction details, label, colors, all of it.
    It feels very congruent with both the Stowa company ethos and with more general materials and packaging ethics today.

    Bravissimi, Mr. Schauer and Stowa.
