    Mitsubishi has an aircraft division that makes regional jets (during WWII, they made the A6M Navy Type 0 "Zero" for the IJN) & Stowa makes pilot/flieger watches (during WWII, they were 1 of the makers of the B-Uhren fliegers for the Luftwaffe).

    Was aware of Stowa’s aviation history but not Mitsubishi’s! Cool! Thanks for sharing!

    Could this evolve into a Stowabishi watch partnership.......?

    I like the hands on the Stowa better.
