    Stowa watches components origin

    Stowa has a great reputation on this board and I've been thrilled with my Flieger Klassik Sport. I did however come across this tidbit on Stowa's FAQ section concerning the origin of Stowa components:

    on the one hand, Schauer has been systematically and successfully looking for component manufacturers with a more favourable pricing structure, including those in the Far East, he admits. On the other hand, he emphasised that "80 percent of the value of Stowa watches is created in Europe"

    Does anyone know specifically where the various major components of Stowa's watches are made? Obviously the movements are usually Swiss-made ETAs and the Flieger Sport has Swiss-made thermally-blued hands but I'm curious about these other components:

    Case
    Dial
    Crown
    Crystal

    The case for example is hand brushed (I'm assuming at Stowa), but are they actually made at Stowa (or somewhere else in Germany) or are they outsourced? Finally, has Jorg actually used any major components from the "Far East"?

    No I don't think it's necessary to answer that.

    Unless it gets answered clearly and concisely people will continue asking.
