    GUG # 5 : STOWA - Jorg Schauer Marine

    my favourite watch since long time. $ 1000 - but only because the $ has became so weak.....i saw the watch for $ 800 before.
    a total steal. Stowa ( Storz Walther ) built watches for Nazi germany....incredible quality.

    for 1 grand you get incredible features, the movement, handwound 6498, perelage under a BALANCED ! hour wheel, swan neck, great decoration, blued hands,
    -blued screws, sapphire front and back.

    the movement used by STOWA in the Marine has recieved more upgrades then a Panerai.( thats my opinion !! ) here the Stowa description:

    The Marine Original is back!

    The STOWA Marine Original has a white dial, blued hands and a small seconds dial at the 6 position. The watch houses a hand wound Unitas 6498 movement with blued screws, screw balance, a swan neck regulator and a Côte de Genève decorative pattern ("Geneva Stripes") that can be seen through the sapphire crystal display back. The casing is offered in a matt or polished finish and the black leather strap is accented with white stitching and fitted with a stainless steel STOWA buckle.

    Dimensions

    The Marine Original is 41mm wide and 10.80mm thick.
    The strap size is 22mm.













    here a pocket watch that nobody wants to have, because it is EVIL NAZI
    german WW2 Kriegsmarine made by STOWA :

    but rather to skid in sideways,
    totally worn out, shouting :

    Great review H_U...and that Stowa is indeed a great price. Nice, clean and uncluttered dial and that movement is gorgeous.

    We are seeing some excellent watches and prices in the GUG threads.



    is it pronounced GUG (goog) or (gug)?? :?

      Agree that it's a good review. Operation sticky--- commence!

      And GUG is pronounced gug. Hence the word-- "GUG." And, although I didn't think I'd really need to say this, there are no other silent letters in GUG, so it's not pronounced Guggenheim, Guggalug, Hugoneous, or Barry.
      Any advice for those just starting to get into replica collecting?
      Yes. Stay away. Stay very far way. Use your money on something more productive and less addictive like, say, blow, midgets and hookers.

      Say it with me! Say it loud! Say it proud! Say it so google picks up the search terms!! Replica Watch Forum!! Replica Watch Forum!! Replica Watch Forum!!!

        remember that Woody Allen movie where he held up a bank with a gun, but the note he gave the teller said "gub" so they would not give him the money...so it's pronounce gug, just like "gub" or gun.... Sweet.

        Oh I just remembered the movie..Take the Money and Run. ( I think )

            Helmut,

            ein kleiner, sarkastischer Witz....

            die STOWA KRIEGSMARINE Taschenuhr ist unbezahlbar, extrem selten und auf einer Ebene mit Lange BeobachtungsUhren.

            ich denke der Durchmesser betraegt ca. 52mm.

            eine Geldanlage erster Guete !

              Yes the movement in your pocket watch, H_U it looks like it has been totally rebuilt, like brand new.

              I just found this one today and comparing it to yours is almost funny but wondering if the movement could be refurbished.

              This one needs to be completely re-done but the owner says it's running. It has a different insignia on the dial too. 50 mm case.

                unfortunately, its not my watch....sigh !

                dont even think dealing with those ukrainian russians....all the stull you see was stolen in germany.

                besides that....find a solution with a russian guy in UKRAINIA...when problems arise.

                good luck.
