In Germany there is a limited version (100 pieces) of the Stowa Exima available with the historic hand-winding movement PUW 560 (PUW = Pforzheimer Uhren Werke).
The PUW560 was build in Pforzheim, the old Stowa location, between 1970 and 1977. Manufactum, a German mail order company which is the exclusive distributor of the Exima line, bought these movements several years ago and now sells these watches.
I can't find a lot of information about that movement on the web. For me it seems that the PUW560 was no "special" movement known for e.g. accuraccy, just a movement ...
The Exima chronometer with ETA 2824-2 is sold for 690 EUR, the Exima PUW560 for 750 EUR.
So my questions are:
Does anyone know more about the quality of this movement?
How would you, as experienced watch fans / collectors, rate such a combination (new watch from a "historic" brand - with a historic movement)?
Is it worth to be collected? Would you say that it is worth the money (your money)?
From the accuracy I would estimate that the ETA Chronometer is the better buy.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions.
