Someone throw this comment in another forum:
"Stowa has very little to do with the company that created watches pre WWII as it was bought in 1996 basically just for its name."
My take is:
Despite people say Stowa is not the same as the original company, it is indeed faithfully following the original Stowa DNA and taking over by Jorg Schauer (an award winning watchmaker) from Werner Storz, two years before he passed away. Note: Werner Storz is the son of stowa founder, Walter Storz.
Even Sinn is no longer under Helmut Sinn family when he sold the company to IWC engineer Lothar Schmidt in 1994. But that doesn't make Sinn a lesser brand. Many brands is like that, just take a look at those conglomerate like Richemond group.
But why people ridicule Stowa and not e.g. Sinn?
What do you think? And how will you reply him?
