Not here if I remember correctly, try google. You`ll find a lot of positive feedback on all Laco Fliegers here on WUS (limited editions as well as the Miyota and 2824-2).

I searched the Du Bois brand. Not much info out there, they seem to make mostly Limited Editions. In fairly small numbers, so I do not understand how they can make a living. Unless most parts are made "not in Switzerland", if I express myself nicely.
Forget the history "since 17whatever". I guess this brand died many decades ago, and was recently resurrected. This is now a very popular thing to do.

As Mike says, check out the Laco's.
I have 2, an original 1944, and the WUS LE. Wife has the WUS LE.
They are fabulous, a real steal for the money.
Look in the Laco Forum.
Also, look on www.laco.de and see what they have.
The Stowas are nice too, but I do not own one.
