Will I receive my watch faster from Special Offers since they're already built? Ready to ship out immediately?
But, there obviously not a lot of any one particular model. Two different Stowas that I am in interested were both completely out-of-stock or reserved by the time I got to the site. It is definitely an "act fast" deal.
I think they do it once a year...someone please correct me if that is not the case.
So long story short. I didn't pay anything extra for the brushed case. It was actually 20% discounted from the regular price and I got a voucher towards my next purchase.
The next purchase will likely be the antea ks with the rose gold dial. I guess that's one way to build a happy and loyal customer base...
I don't even know how much it costs to have the case brushed. I do recall people mentioning it is about 100-150 euro but I'm not sure of that. Just send them an email if you want to know exact numbers, they are super helpful and friendly. If only all businesses treat their customers like this.

Got it! Thanks for the quick response! When I reached out to Stowa they quoted me an additional 100 euro upcharge for the brushed case. Looks like you got lucky! Enjoy your wonderful Stowa!
The Eulit "Kristall" Perlon certainly used to come in 20mm (see below), but never in 22mm (which I needed for my MO) that I know of.
The Eulit "Kristall" blue is, as of course you know, a very elegant blue-grey. But, no 22mm.
So, I also ordered a Eulit "Palma" in 22mm, blue. That blue, as you also noted, is really a very bright Royal Blue. I disliked the color and returned the strap immediately. I also really did not like the thicker weave of the "Palma" vs the "Kristall".
Finally, I found some Perlon straps by Clockwork Synergy, on eBay, in Navy Blue, and they are quite good imo. The Navy Blue is a real, good Navy Blue; the weave and thickness is closer to the Eulit "Kristall" than to the "Palma"; the taper end fusing/finish is excellent; there are 2 keepers (1 fixed + 1 sliding, very nice); the buckle is very nice (I cannot recall if they can provide a brushed buckle option, or only polished); and the whole thing comes in a nice box with 2 springbars. Not bad for US $12.00.
Here are two photos of the Clockwork Synergy Perlon in Navy Blue next to the Eulit "Kristall" in Blue (and the Eulit "Palma" in Royal Blue pasted in, for color and weave scale), and then a few images of the CS strap on the wrist under different light. I think it works very well with the Stowa heat-blued hands. I uploaded some different images in the "Who else is wearing a Stowa today?" thread.
