..... I had to wait for a new watch from Stowa was slightly more than 23 months ........
23 months!!!!!!! You have the patience of a saint! Thats Rolex waiting list level patience.
Two months (+ 10 days) is nothing, shouldn't even be mentioned..... I waited 2 months for my watch. Another 10 days in the scheme of things is nothing .....
23 months feels like cheating to me
How about 9 years, 3 weeks and 2 days?
That's the time I waited for the watch I am wearing today (photo taken earlier this week):
Let me correct this - I'm actually wearing my wife's watch (same wait time as they were ordered together - mine is a no-date version).
A lot can happen in 9 years and the wait-time outnumbered the days my wife had left under the sun .... she never got to see -and enjoy- her MKII Project 300 timepiece.
This was not lost on Mr Yao, owner / CEO of MKII watches - my wife's watch came with a very nice and thoughtful, handwritten letter from Mr. Yao. And he donated a seizable $$ amount to my wife's favorite charity - I know for a fact that he must have made a loss on this one.
Likewise, her 36 mm Stowa Flieger 90th Anniversary Edition did also arrive after she had passed. With a condolence-card, signed by the entire Stowa Team.
Both MKII and Stowa had offered me the option of a full refund; however, the watches and the way we were treated, are priceless to me.
