    Stowa "Extra" movement?

    Does anyone know of a movement by Stowa that pretty much just says "Stowa" and "Extra" on the back? It is something old. Maybe between the 40's and 60's.

    Cheers,

    Brian

    Stowa never produced movements, it is more likely that the movement was made by A.Schild, ETA, PUW or OSCO. Without a pic I can`t say more.

    I added pics of a Stowa Extra of those times.

    Both you are right:

    STOWA never manufactured movements by themselves, but they signed some of the built in movements with their brand.
    If we can see a pic o f the movement, we can tell more - or you are going to determinate it by yourself here:

    I've won the auction with a bid of about $12 + $25 shipping. Seller has no info on it other then the obvious. I think he was expecting more for it and offered to let me cancel if I want. What do you guys think? Is it worth picking up just for collections sake? It supposedly works still. If not, I wanted to keep it in my box of goodies and some day try and restore it. Any input is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Brian

    ....Is it worth picking up just for collections sake?...
    I would say "NO" seen the very, very bad conditions and the money you will have to invest to get it restored. I would not even have paid $ 12.

    I join Mike's opinion.
    The movement isn't vintage - it is old and rotten, :oops:

    Thanks for the heads up guys! The seller has already re-posted it so I will let him know that I am no longer interested.

    Cheers,
