Regular readers of worn&wound know that we have a lot of love for Stowa. The popular German brand just gets it; clean design, superb construction and finishing, and a palatable price point make for a wholly appealing package. It’s by no means a complex formula, but it’s one that seems to elude some of the bigger firms. At Baselworld, we took the opportunity to meet with the man behind the brand, Mr. Jörg Schauer, to check out Stowa’s novelties. If what we saw was any indication, 2016 will be a strong year for this German favorite.
First up is the Flieger Professional. Designed by Hartmut Esslinger—who previously collaborated with Stowa on the Rana and the b2b series—the Flieger Professional is Stowa’s latest pilot’s watch and addition to its family of robust technical timepieces.
