    Stowa Klassik 6498 Running Fast

    I purchased a Stowa Klassik 6498 almost 3 years ago and it has been a great watch, getting a lot of wrist time. It has just started running 8 minutes fast per day. Anyone else have a similar problem with their stowa? I have owned multiple other higher end pieces without ever having this issue.

    Thanks for the info. Took it a local watchmaker and he fixed it in a few seconds.

    FWIW my Stowa Flieger 40mm handwinder seems to be particularly susceptible to magnetization too. I was keeping it in the safe with the other watches (all of which are fine) and suddenly it was gaining like crazy. My watch guy demagnetized it and all was well. Now when waiting its turn on the rotation it lives in the sock drawer and seems quite happy.
