today I want to tell you the first part of the story of my MO. I hope, you will enjoy it.
First time I intended to buy a MO was about two years ago. But then the FO LE came out and I had to get this beauty first.
In the meantime there were other priorities and so I did not think much about the MO.
But some weeks ago the MO came back to my mind.
Although the movement of the MO is really nice, from the very beginning I wanted a little bit more.
But what can you change about the movement, that fits the character of this watch?
After some thoughts about engraving and so on, I decided to go for a "Dreiviertelplatine".
After this decision was made, I began to think about the shape.
My first drawings with more or less parabolic shape were all somehow not consistent.
Then the idea came up to use just circles. The basic shape of the movement itself and its radius.
So I made another drawing and the result was what I was looking for. A shape that is as clear as the whole watch.
Some screwed chatons will be added and in the end, the movement will get back its Geneva stripes.
After some research on the internet I found a little company in Pforzheim, that can do the modification of the movement.
There were many mails between Mr. Belz and Mr. Uphoff of "Premium Watches Pforzheim" and me about the details.
Of cause there were many mails with Jörg, because there were some things to clarify with Stowa too.
Fortunately he will support the project as far as he can.
At the beginning of this week I finally ordered the MO.
Now I have to wait for delivery.
I will keep you informed about the next steps and will post some more pictures as soon as I have some.
