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