Hello all,
I have had a Marine Original silver dial in my basket for months now but can never quite bring myself to pull the trigger. I have done the necessary searches and I understand that Stowa doesn't offer discount codes. I did read about previous advent calendars though and just had it confirmed from their helpdesk that it'll run again this year. My question is, what sort of reductions to the advent calendars generally offer? Ergo, are they worth waiting for? I envisage a long winter of me lazily winding my 6498!!
Cheers.

In an email from the last event they showed a Marine Klassik 40 for €750 instead of €950. I would expect to save 100€ or so. But don’t forget the wait times. You may order in December but be waiting till February. (Depending on their delivery estimate)

That's great. No hurry my end and definitely sounds worth waiting for! Thanks.

Definitely worth the wait IMO. Amazing company and service. Also note that they dont always offer every model for the Christmas sale. Although your particular model is popular so you should be ok.

nah,... just generally keeps me from a deep sleep. I'll then have a good chance of being conscious.

I am hoping the watch I have my sights on comes up before too long! The last time I took advantage of their advent calendar, I think it was the watch that appeared at 1:00 AM that I hit the buy-it button for. I think it's a lot of fun but if I don't get lucky, I'll probably buy it at full price anyway.

I would've gone for the Verus but I already own a Damasko DS30.

Is it just me or is interest in Stowa declining?

They without doubt make good watches, but personally I have become a bit disinterested in the brand. I am tired of the limited editions, I dislike models sharing the same case design and I am bored of the limited choice of movements. The constant price increases (another due next month) means I don't see where the value now lies, as they are now competing with some major brands in terms of price point - prices have gone up, but their offer hasn't improved, while their competitors have. These advent calendar offers used to sell out in seconds, now they sit for days without being sold.
