The original design of the original Flieger watch by STOWA (1940) was marked by the usual arrangement of the hour numbers on the dial. They called this version Baumuster A (see figure on the left). Around 1942, the Baumuster B was developed. This dial is characterized by the large external (numerical) minute-track and the smaller inner hour circle. The large 55 mm watch in the Baumuster B version of STOWA is one of the rarest large Flieger watches ever. There were probably only 42 pieces built. Both original STOWA Flieger watches can be seen in the museum in Engelsbrand.

One of the most successful watch types of all times, unquestionably, is the pilot watch. Its popularity is due to its distinctive design, which is linked to its eventful history: when men started to populate the sky, timekeepers became indispensable instruments. As a result, a distinctive type evolved - the pilot watch.

At the beginning of the 20th century, mad men in flying crates caused excitement. Mobility became more and more important. Horse carriages were replaced by fueled vehicles, railroads connected numerous urban centers and in the air, pilots were flying with nerves of steel - at that time, aviation was dangerous.

Admittedly, the days of aircraft captains needing special watches to assist them are over. Modern measuring tools and, if nothing else, global positioning system GPS are today´s equipment. However, what lasts is the typical look of the pilot watch: with its classic design, the watch is rated among the treasured favorites of some watch collection.

Being one of the largest manufacturers for pilot watches, STOWA produces its characteristic watches in various designs again since 1997. Featuring manual wind, automatic movement or as a chronograph. Every watch fan may find the right one for himself within this premium collection.
