    Stowa desk “watch”

    I recently got this guy ticking again. Keeping pretty good time. It uses a watch movement that was acquired by Timex in the 60s. Pretty interesting electro-magnetic movement. Super frustrating to work on being magnetic. I’ve found a number of working Timex electric watches but can’t find any other desk clocks that use the movement.

    Those desk watches used wristwatches. Case (no lugs), dial, crystal, movement, back - all put into an outer casing, mostly chrome plated brass.

    It’s a nice size for a desk. I’d love to see other nice examples.

    Love that! Is it quartz? Thinking it’s not electric because all these Timex movements are back set.

    Here are some of my Stowa watches/clocks not to be worn on the wrist:

    You can rate the different sizes of the timepieces by comparing with the AAA-battery (38 mm high, 10 mm diameter).
    Feel free to ask your questions,

    That is an impressive collection! I saw one that likely has a similar electric movement as mine. They seem to be quite rare.

    That's only part of a collection.

    I saw one that likely has a similar electric movement as mine.
    There are three clocks with an electric movement:
    Line 7, #1 - #5; line 7, #6 and line 8, #1 - #3; line 9, #3 - #6.
    These movements were made by Laco (also situated in Pforzheim). Laco was aquired by Timex in 1961 and sold again a few years later.

    They seem to be quite rare.
    I can't agree with you. Within the last 15 years I got these plus about 30 more or less identical ones, I didn't see no need to photograph them too.
