The History of STOWA's Chronographs.
STOWA looks back on a long and successful tradition regarding the construction of mechanical chronographs. Its history reaches back to the 1960s and 1970s. There were plain chronographs with classical watch cases as well as dainty ones with colorful designs in the 1970s. STOWA has always been a part of it with its exceptional watches. Inside of these collectors’ items, many of it displayed at STOWA museum, the watches feature mechanical movements of times past: Valjoux movements, Landeron calibers and more. Even today, Swiss movements are used further on, as in all STOWA watches – for example famous established Valjoux 7753 chronograph movement (reliable and solid). Generally, one of the best calibers. Over 25 years now, Jörg Schauer and STOWA use this chrono movement very successfully for their watch production.
