    Once upon a time (Pallas Flieger)>>>

    Whilst surfing the e-bay I came across a very rare Pallas Flieger probably out of the 60ties.



    Pallas ?

    Well, once upon a time there have been a lot of watch maufacturers in the Pforzheim area known as Stowa (Walter Storz), Para (Paul Raff), Arctos, Hugo Weinmann (brand: Exquisit), Ormo and others.



    In 1970 most of them joined the Pallas Deutsche Uhren-Kooperation (Pallas German Watch Cooperation).
    Paul Raff was one of the men who founded Pallas. Somehow a new marketing strategy in 1970 by using synergetic effects - that´s what it is called nowadays. (So it is quite possible to fetch a Stowa Pallas or Pallas Stowa or just a Pallas on ebay).

    Already in 1949 (after WW II) a "Deutsche Uhrenkooperation" was founded by Philipp Weber; brandname: PARAT. Here are the manufacturers (I know) who belonged to this cooperation: Arctos Uhrenfabrik Philipp Weber, Berg Uhrenfabrik, Wilhelm Beutter, Osco Uhrenfabrik, Otto Schlund (brand was currently re-launched), Stowa. When wholesalers got into economical troubles and decided to sell the PARAT-collection to greater department stores the cooperation lost a lot of money and disappeared from the market.

    If you wanna get to know some more models, i.e. Pallas Para, Pallas Eppo, Pallas Stowa try ebay and search for "pallas". Here´s one I fetched on the bay, fitted with a PUW 1561 movement. Got the watch in real mint condition.



    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the seller but I thought it would be interesting to hear something about the Pallas history and to have a look on time witness like that Flieger.

    :thanks for your kind words.

    I am really tempted to bid. As I can see from the pictures the hands need a re-lume. Movement (swiss made) looks good, current bid is reasonable, but 6h to go.
    Case diameter is 36mm so quite small but the Flieger is quite unique too. Only 7 hours and we will know

    Somebody from WUS made the grab?

    Re: Once upon a time (Pallas Flieger)>>>Parat

    My wife purchased a Parat 14K ladies watch at an estate auction. It keeps good time although it has seen some use.

    There are no markings on the movement and the only number that I can find is on the back of the case (3634). I would like to find out the year of manufacture and the manufacturer. I would also like to find a replacement face or get enough info to restore it.

    I don't have a pic of it yet as my main interest was in the other watches that she bought in the same lot. One, a Fine Seiko, will require a lot of work to restore it and my main interest was finding out if it was rare enough to restore.

    I would appreciate any help on the Parat.

    Thanks Allen
