+1 to who wears watch and who pays 1700 for watch, etc etc...social status symbol in China hilarious!! Sir, I would love to help you, but that watch looks made in china fake rolex or whatever extremely expensive watches are!
WE ARE THE 89%!!
(that is, the 89% that don't care if "CA tax kills the deal")
I have a 1963/4/5 or so Navi Timer that I never wear. Just sits in a safe place.
How to get a new real leather strap and what maintainance do these things need.
If would up, it holds time. It has never been serviced.
Some day I plan to sell it, so until then I want to preserve it, but also keep my costs down.
Strongly agree (my Stowa Prodiver says hi). Stowa Prodiver or Seatime in my opinion does well against divers at any price point in terms of quality. I also like the value proposition in Stowa, though the 4-6 month wait is tortuous. I like a more unique brand and story that Stowa can offer, as opposed to the ubiquity of an Omega or Breitling (great watches though, just personal preference).
Curious about how many people contemplating this after getting started on watches due to SD. I bought my first automatic here about a year ago (Seiko 5 SNZ13 for $89). I now have a Stowa Prodiver, Victorinox Airboss Mach 6. My post deployment watch next year will be a Sinn (maybe 756 UTC). That Seiko ended up being a very expensive SD...
Fellow WUSer here. Loyal Stowa and MKII owner. Slickdeals is what turned me on to Stowa and WUS 3 years ago. 2.5 years ago I ordered the Stowa MO and waited 4 months for it's arrival. It was worth every second of the wait. I don't think I will ever go back to mainstream watches after seeing the quality, value, and customer service that you get from the independent watchmakers. Bill Yao and Jorg Schauer are two of the world's finest. Next up on the list...Stowa Chrono. http://www.stowa.de/Chronograph+1938+matt,i5.htm
