STOWA has been successfully building professional sports and diving watches since 1963. The resulting watches of recent decades are diverse. Especially in the seventies, the designers of the brand were very active. Fancy watches with playful color schemes were created. The effort has always been to carefully continue the tradition, but also to modernize the models. The sports watch Seatime (200 meters water resistant) and the diving watch Prodiver (1000 meters water resistant) were born out of this. Design features of the earlier watches were carefully revised and adapted without destroying the DNA.

Collectors watch from the STOWA museum with colorful galvanized dial, seventies.
Together with the members of a German forum, a new Seatime dial is created and issued in a limited series. Striking features of this first sports watch of the modern era are the dash luminous indexes and different dial colors combined with them.
After the first limited series with the index dial, STOWA presents the series watch, which has hardly changed until today. It has a dial with luminous numerals and date display. Since then, limited dial colors and patterns have been realized again and again. (e.g. pink, carbon, yellow, etc.).
The desire to make the Seatime even more professional and to implement all the features of a real diver's watch was realized in the Prodiver. A helium valve and water resistance up to 1000 meters guarantee absolute functionality. A very appreciated watch among divers, sportsmen and collectors.
The orange Prodiver has won the hearts of watch collectors in 2013. The watch presents itself boldly and freshly and is rewarded for it. At the moment, the Prodiver is available in lime as well as orange.
The idea of making a special limited edition model of our popular Seatime was well received. For the first time, the trademarked dynadots, created in collaboration with world-renowned designer Hartmut Esslinger (frog design founder and inventor of the Apple design language), were also applied to the bezel. Five-minute dots that increase in diameter to subtly signal the progression of time. The dynadots make reading elapsed time very easy.
Inspired by previous STOWA dials - which were also galvanized blue - we launched two different watch series last year. The sold out Flieger Blue Limited and the sold out Marine Original Blue Limited. The idea to use the traditional STOWA blue also for our sports watch immediately met with the approval of numerous STOWA collectors.

The collaboration with Hartmut Esslinger on the Rana model inspires Jörg Schauer and he creates another special feature with the Dynadots bezel. For the first time, the markings on the bezel are also subtly recognizable. Ascending luminous dots show the clear progression of time.
