When I decided to buy my first nice watch, I thought I knew what I wanted. I got on the net and googled watches. I had set my price range at 1000 to 1500 hundred. As I studied the various watch designs and learned more about watches, I found one reoccuring theme, save your money and get the Stowa,or nice watch but not equal to the Stowa,you get the idea. I had never heard of Stowa,but thought if so many people were saying things like this, I should look into Stowa. What I found is a watch maker who is dedicated to his profession and is providing a QUALITY product at a very good price. He has good people working for him, who are a pleasure to deal with.
I am not the final word here, there are plenty people on this site who know far more than I, Volker, Mike Stuffler to name a few. I own just one STOWA with one due here this week. I will let you know when it arrives and to the quality of that piece. I expect it to be as all Stowas, fantastic!!!
