    Stowa Manual Wind Movements with Second Stop - Hacking Function

    Pardon the newby question but what manual wind movements used in Stowa watches have a hacking / second stop function?

    Also, does the Stellita SW215-1 in fact hack ?

    Found the specs on that movement and just wanted to confirm that I read correctly that it did have a 'second stop' (hack) function.

    Just ordered a Stowa Flieger 6498 (no second hand) and know that the 6498 doesn't hack by design and was about to order a Baumuster B 40mm with SW215-1 but wanted to know for sure of its second stop function before I pulled the trigger.

    Thanks for your input/expertise.

    No, not all Stowa watches hack. The Unitas 6498, for example, does not. I don't believe the Peseux 7001 does, either, but I have no personal experience with that one. It really depends on the age and design of the movement. The Sellita is newer than, say, the Unitas 6498 in terms of design.

    You guys are great. Fantastic. Thanks Mike and Bay and JB330ci.

    Think the Unitas 6497 did hack but could be wrong; might have used it in a FOLE a while back.

    Now am excited to put yet another order in for a Flieger, this time with the SW215-1 movement.

    I've read that Stowa used to offer a modified version of the 6497 which had central seconds and hacking. Can't remember the exact reason that it is no longer available, but I believe it is not likely to come back.

    Just passing along something interesting. I was just perusing the FAQ page of the new Stowa website, and there is a section devoted to Movements, as well as several others devoted to discussions of design characteristics and history.

    Maybe this was also on the old website, others may know. But I can't recall seeing anything quite like this on the old website. Here is the link: https://www.stowa.de/en/FAQ/

    The modified 6497 is no longer available because the swiss watchmaker who made the modification is dead...

    And the stop second is very special : when you pull the crown, the central second hand still running and stop at the 12 index !!!

    And this movement is beautiful !!!



    You can find the similar movement with the IP13 of isoprog : http://www.isoprog.ch/wp-content/upl.../07/050914.pdf
    The Naf, MHe225 and mreyman73 like this.

    The movement is indeed beautiful and that special stop second function is really amazing. However the "know how" for modifying 6497 to do so went to the grave with the dead Swiss watchmaker is so stupid. No one else could figure it out how to do it? Or could some one reverse engineer it?
