    What STOWA is this?

    Hey Forum,

    I have bought this beautiful STOWA via eBay for around 30€ (after my first STOWA Antea KS black arrived one week before). It is working, but I would like to have it serviced.
    Unfortunately I was not able to identify the exact model and manufacturing year so far. Any suggestions?

    Best regards

    Meanwhile I have gathered some more information:
    On the back it is written: "STAINLESS STEEL BACK 411754".

    Attached please find an additional (low-quality) picture of the movement.

    Best regards

    According to the design of the numerals it is a typical watch of the 60ties (see the revived Glashütte Original "Sixties"), under the balance wheel there should be a mark engraved (likely: PUW) which gives us a hint regarding the producer of the movement (which I think could have been PUW (Pforzheimer Uhrenwerke)).
    Kind regards

    I agree with Mike, referring to the "Sixties".

    IMHO the movement, however, comes from Fontainemelon/Switzerland, not from Pforzheim.
    It seems to be a FHF out of the 67 family ( 23,3 mm diameter) or the 96 family (25,6 mm diameter).
    Both have a power reserve of 48 to 51 hrs.!

    If you are living here in Germany I can give you a recommendation for a good and reliable master watchmaker, who serviced many of my vintage watches,

    Thank you Mike, thank you Volker.

    Seems as if I have bought a real "Schätzchen" as we would probably say in German. However, I have moved to Austria a year ago. I have already found a watchmaker, who is specialized in vintage watches, here in Vienna.

    He would change the glass, clean the clock face and decompose, clean and recompose the movement for around 250 €. Is this based on your experience a reasonable price?
