    Official Baselnews from STOWA/Schauer

    Hello everybody,

    busy months has passed.
    Today i have the first time to say hello to all STOWA and Schauer watch fans.

    At he moment (i arrived Friday and will go back to germany monday evening)we exhibit in basel and i want to use the time to launch the news from STOWA.

    In the reason of the new building and moving in the last 2 weeks i have had no time to do many new items.

    But - anyway - i want to share this items with you.

    1
    First i want to present the Marine Original in Rosegold 750/000 and with a silver dial.

    Romeon numbers (of course we do also the arabic number version)

    Crocostrap and solid rosegod buckle.

    Price will be Euro 5.900.-

    The concept includes a new idea i have written before:

    I you have old goldjewells or goldwatches you can give us this old gold and we will use it to produce your watch.

    Maybe you have some gldcoins or finegold - we also can use this.

    More details later.

    The case of the watch is 41 mm size and matt finish.

    Blued steel hands.

    2 Durowe
    Please have also a look at the Unitas 6498 based new DUROWE movement.
    The concept is now after doing the design and finish to produce step by step as much parts as possible.

    This is a way we need of course a few months/years.

    But the first step is done and we develope and produce now the first serie.

    I will use it in STOWA and Schauer watches- of course in different finish and maybe with different features.

    Just have a look a the design.

    Ok- now it is "collectors" day in basel - we are busy and we wish you all a nice weekend.

    best regards

    Jörg Schauer

    Thank you for taking the time to share. The rose gold MO is a beauty. I really like that it has a silver dial. Congrats on the movement. I like the look of it.

    What is the production capacity of Durowe compared to Stowa/Schauer production?
    Wasn't it possible to use old Durowe designs, why did you choose to develop the new production around avec 6498 based mouvement?
    Besides that many models like airman and marine are developed around the unitas, maybe you have other explanations.
    Last, what are the mid and longer mouvements to be done by Durowe?

    All the best for Basel fair!

    Regarding what I expected from the Durowe activities, frankly:

    At first, i was disappointed too.
    But, remember: new facility, the move, trouble with the craftsmen......and designing a new movement - and all to be handled by one man only: Joerg Schauer

    It's still a small company, where the owner has to decide now, how business will be organized in future.

    I'm sure there will be more issues in near future - but I trust in STOWA and their strong team, especially customer's service by Regine Schauer and Viveca Hafner.

    As far as the communication is going well, all issues will be managed by STOWA ..............and by us, the customers,

    Great news and info

    I'll ask the obvious question:

    If the new Durowe movement is based on the 6498, I'm assuming it would easily be interchangeable with the current modified 6498 in the FO and MO. So this begs the question: when/would it be available in the FO? Say, if you were really far down on the list, would it be listed as an option when payment is requested by the end of 2009?
