    My fren brought this up to me. How difficult it is to fix Durowe movement? Send back to Stowa?

    They can have both, blued screws and rotor engraving. They can also have perlage on the base plate and other decoration like geneva stripes or whatsoever. The question: Will Jörg do some decoration ?

    Repairing should be no problem for a skilled watchmaker. Finding parts, if necessary, might become troublesome in the future. However, a google search (Durowe parts) reveals that parts are not only available in Germany.

    Hello everybody,

    here is a new concept picture with the date on the dial (i will definetly will do for a part of the 250 watches)

    I have not decided if i should put on 3 or 6 o´clock Position.

    I think it is very attractive to keep the original 3 o´clock Position and to use the original discs - it makes the watch more authentic.
    (and it will be a bit away from the 6 o ´clock Position we normally do ;))

    I am still thinking ,)

    Decoration of the movement:
    It will be definitely not decorated with Code Geneve or something like that.

    Maybe we put blue screws in it - this can be a option, but still this i will think about if it looks good or not.
    (of course this will be a idea we test because the color blue is the idea of the watch ;))

    Pforzheim and Durowe did very good movements, but never high decorated - i will keep this.

    A swiss decorated movement will be not authenic for this kind of movement.

    AND: To decorate this movements will have two big problems:

    1 - the price will be much higher for this watch

    2 - but for me the same important has the fact: To loose the movements in this working process will be a desaster and this sometimes happen.
    One small mistake during the complete decoration process will destroy 250 very worthful movements.
    (it is not possible to reproduce parts of this movement and my stock of repairpavts is very bog, but if a bridge is destroyed it is impossible to reproduce for a payable price)

    This risk is to high!

    I feel that the basic decoration of the former DUROWE times belongs more to this movement.

    It looks basic but not raw.

    Bye for now

    Hi Jorg--

    Thank you for the update. The date at 3 o'clock looks pretty good, but the no-date dial is still my preference... I think.

    I understand the desire to minimize risk at this price point. Would this mean that custom rotor engraving is also off the table, or is that low/no risk?
