    Summer BBQ and MOBLE

    My wife and I rented a Volvo combi and decided to drive 4,000km in Germany and Czech Republic. The first thing I did was to open my watch company map (thanks Mike Stuffler) and point the GPS towards the small town of Engelsbrand.

    As we arrived several hours later at our destination, after a 10km-per-hour drive on the well-traveled autobahn, we were pleasantly surprised that the first destination was Stowa. Oh, and they happened to be throwing a summer BBQ party. As a good Texan, we came prepared with BBQ sauce and a large appetite.

    Herr Schauer is not only the creative mind behind Stowa, but also an excellent grill chef - a fact he will deny to avoid cooking at home.

    There is Fanny Auer, always being helpful and cheerful, and great at organizing. Look at the crates of wine and beer!

    Regine Schauer is reason entire Stowa operation runs so smoothly. In this case, all the neighborhood kids worked under her direction to make this BBQ a success. They were rewarded with juicy steaks and summer beer.

    Then there are all the watch makers and marketing staff, taking a well-deserved break from the indoors to enjoy the summer outdoors. There alcohol intake was measured to ensure zero wastage of watch parts next day.

    Finally, it was past midnight and time to go into the manufactury (just like the movie) - Night At The Manufactury - and select the right strap for MOBLE and of course my wife wanted her blue dial in Back to Bauhaus.

    It's time to let all the good folks at Stowa rest until August 15th.

    But maybe we can look forward to a winter Stowa wine cellar party and collecting Prodiver Blue?

    Great post; thanks for sharing. My wife and I are planning a similar trip for the future. I don't think I'll be able to afford all the watches I'd want to pick up though!

    Best,

    Myron
    Kind Regards,

    Myron
