Stowa Jump Hour Watch - An awesome steel cased big dial “jump hours - direct read”. This gents watch has an Automatic Calibre 2212 (Otero 796) movement with 25 jewels. The watch has a fabulous retro two tone blue and white dial which looks so cool!

The watch is in an overall great condition with only minimal signs of wear. This is a watch that was made by the renowned West German company Stowa in the 1970’s as you can no doubt tell from the style.

The Case

The case is all stainless steel with a screw in back, still retaining all its sharp edges and original features, with some marks on the case back which should polish out should you wish. It looks great and wears really well and is so comfortable. At 37mm wide without the crown it is a really nice sized watch.

The Dials and Glass

As we said earlier this watch has a really attractive retro dial that is really easy to read unlike some other jump hour watches we have had in the past. The dial is made up of three rotating discs showing, hours, minutes and seconds.The dial, discs and glass are all unmarked, the glass having been cleaned and lightly polished to show the dial off at its best.

The Movement

A superb mechanical automatic wind calibre 2212 Dugena movement, which were also named “Otero 796. The 25 jewel movement is clean,running strong and keeping excellent time. The movement features an automatic, digital: second, minute and jumping hour wheel and has a power reserve of 44 hours.

The Bracelet/Strap

The watch has an excellent steel bracelet fitted and although it is unsigned it would appear original to the watch and looks great.
