I have been waiting for my Stowa Flieger Original since 2008.
After several delays. In 2010, I was told my FO will be ready in July 2011.
Last week, I sent Stowa an e-mail regarding the delivery time of the watch.
The following is the response by Stowa. Has anybody received a similar notice?
a fairly long time you are now waiting for your ordered Flieger Original.
Once again we would like to thank you for your patience and fidelity.
Unfortunately we cannot keep the delivery date stated by us.
Mr. Schauer decided to produce this watch by himself as experience has shown that a lot of expert knowledge and utmost accuracy is required to make sure that the Flieger Original will be perfect.
Currently we have a delay in delivery of 3-4 months. We cannot give you a reliable commitment when we can ship the Flieger Original and whether we can recover this delay or not.
If you want to keep up your order despite this delay we will of course deliver it as confirmed.
We understand that this situation is not satisfying and that this new delay is a new ordeal for you. Therefore we would like to offer you an alternative in case that you don't want to wait this long.
In case that you want to order another model of our collection instead of the Flieger Original we can grant you a discount of 10 %. At the Basle fair we have for instance introduced our new Flieger Chrono and also further new models. For these watches the delivery time stated in our online shop is valid.
This offer is not limited and also valid for orders at a later date.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Kind regards from Engelsbrand.
