    Vintage Stowas

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post on the Stowa forum, I normally post in the Vintage & Pocket watches forums. I love the styling of Bauhaus inspired watches such as Stowa and Nomos, and I'd love to own a modern example of the aforementioned brands one day, but currently my budget only allows for vintage pieces. I scour the local flea markets every few weeks for watches with blue hands and clean, minimalist dials . I have two Stowas:



    This one is one of my all time favourite watches, I have never seen anything quite like it and am very proud to own it. I think it is a great example of a watch that has aged gracefully.



    This one is quite a bit younger. Not Bauhaus per se, but I think that it is also quite unique and looks nice.

    So what do you guys think?

    If anyone has vintage Stowas (or other Bauhaus-inspired watches) in their collection, please post them!

    Regards,
    Mark

    Congrats Mark - those are really nice ones.

    Here are some of mine:

    #1 is one of my favorites: I call her "Freckles"






    A pocket watch:




    A stopwatch:





    An alarm clock:





    That's a multi purpose watch.
    First it is a desk watch:





    You can separate the watch from it's base and you get a pocket watch:





    Another special-function watch:



    The inner ring counts up to sixty minutes and reminds you to get back to your car at the parkometer:





    ...and many more are here to find:

    Thanks for the positive feedback. That pocket watch (the second photo) is absolutely stunning. So is the other (hunter case) one on your website. My, what a beatiful movement! The stopwatch is also very nice. I tend to prefer the earlier (pre-war) Stowa designs.

    Only 1 vintage Stowa in our house, a small one I picked up for my wife. Amazing how small they made that handwinding movement! BTW, I love the first one you pictured, the font of the numerals is unlike anything I've ever seen.

    Here's our 2 Stowa's:
