Really cool way to keep the Black Forest watches going. Just wondering how durable the finish is? I know this is a LE but if someone wanted to daily wear this watch, would that be feasible with the coating? On the display model at Stowas headquarters of the Black Forest Antea 1919, I noticed the finish had begun to wear. Could’ve been a defective one and that’s why it was the display, I don’t know. Anyone have daily wear experience with the Black Forest Antea or Verus they released last year?

It seems curious that Stowa would sponsor a WUS forum section yet, not bother to post an announcement thread here. Maybe they assumed Mike would start a thread? He’s already served as an enabler by starting a thread for the bronze Flieger Klassik :)

Well, they don‘t notify me and I am not always checking their accounts to spread news. Slackness on their side.

I currently have 2 Stowas, sterile A dial with black strap and logo engraving, and sterile B dial with brown strap and Fl 23883 engraving.

.....there’s something about the Baumuster B dial that I can’t put my finger on...... but I love it.

I have got a Laco Aachen Blaue Stunde 39, but that really hasn’t clicked with me like my Stowas, so that may end up for sale. I think it wears bigger than my Stowas and the crystal is not as high end in visuals, although still love that dial, and it’s in blue!

Long story short I have an incoming Black Forest Baumuster B :) my first limited, and I will treat it as my dressier version of my beloved B dial.

I did consider having the Vintage Bronze with a Baumuster B dial, albeit they confirmed it wouldn’t be a vintage B dial just the standard dial and hands swapped over, but I think I would prefer any wear on the coating from a black watch to show silver steel rather than a bronze showing green (I really dislike green as a colour), so decision was easy in the end, and can’t wait - shouldn’t be long now hopefully 👍
