The STOWA history.
The Prodiver Olymp Bronze wins the watch vote!
Again we won the popular online contest at Watchtime! For the fifth time in a row (!) our sports watch Prodiver wins this competition (in the very competitive category up to 2.500.- Euro!). We are not only very delighted about the award but also of the number of votes cast: No other watch (across all categories) has received more individual votes than STOWA: More than 2200 readers have chosen the Prodiver Olymp Bronze!

Handwinding movement availableFrom now on, we have again a handwinding movement for almost all models available: The beautifully finished ETA 2804-2 movement with golden STOWA engraving, Code de Geneve and blued screws. Whether the movement fits into your watch, you always see on the product-specific pages. Here is a small excerpt: Suitable for Flieger Klassik 40, Marine Klassik 40, Partitio, Antea 365 and 390 etc.
Form Follows Emotion
The new Flieger watch was designed by Hartmut Esslinger, the founder of frog design. Besides others he worked successfully for Wega, Apple, Sony and many more. In the picture you see Hartmut Esslinger discussing a detail with Jörg Schauer.
Antea. back to bauhausSTOWAs' desire for a modernization of the classic bauhaus watch inspired the designer Hartmut Esslinger to take a look back at the history of Bauhaus. He himself says about the Antea back to bauhaus design: “It had to be a cool interpretation of both the original design of Lange & Söhne (1937) and also the Antea by STOWA (1937). I kept the stainless steel case of the Antea Classic. The dial with the modern Bauhaus STD type from Ed Benguiat and Victor Caruso, creates a historical original with its sensitive aesthetics. The colors offered by STOWA are a tribute to Josef Albers and Johannes Itten, because Bauhaus should not only be seen as black or white.”2014
