    When do you think the next price increase on Stowa Fliegers is due?

    The price of watches always rises, usually there is a cycle of increases at Stowa, is the Flieger safe this year or is it due a 2016 hike in line with other watches?
    Another question I have is related to Stowa's delivery time on the Flieger ohne logo automatic, it is currently 2 weeks as confirmed by Sandra at Stowa. Is this the new normal state of affairs, I have been used to the scenario of a 3 to 4 month waiting time.

    Not sure about price hike on flieger. They cut the wait time significantly awhile ago. There's a price increase schedule a year + back, couldnt find it. Lets hope they dont increase so rampant then

    Have Stowa ever increased prices in a rampant way ? I can't think of a rampant increase and I am with Stowa since 15 yrs. now. Groundless fear I say.

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. However, I chill.

    I've bought 3 Stowa's in the last year +, while the EUR/USD rate was historically favorable to me. In the $1.07 - $1.10 range, if I recall correctly.

    Only a couple of years ago the range was more like $1.40. That's significant in my book. Don't know about the rest of you, but I watch that fairly closely. I try not to forget the old saying: "Can't see the forest for the trees".

    Just my $0.02.

    I am not going to loose any sleep over this. They always seem to keep their prices pretty stable.

    Speaking of prices just got an email for 20% a couple of exhibition watches. Right on my way to work. You can guess the rest



    (In case you couldn't by the time i arrived at work and had a look the specific models I was interested in had sold out. Oh well...back to saving for the lmited edition marine original)

    I'm sure they will increase prices steadily, over time, as they should. I doubt they will mark large, aggressive jumps. They will move upmarket with new designs like the Rana and the Flieger Professional and will leave the classic pieces in more accessible price ranges.

    You and me both - small difference, but same idea and result. I saw the e-mail when I got home from work; had been sitting in my in-box for several hours. Sure enough, the one and only that I want(ed) was already sold. I think we're both looking for the same model and saving for the same one. But then, when was the last time you have seen a MOLE for sale (especially at a somewhat realistic price)? Still, it might happen: I had to wait several years but did end up with a FOLE.
