Stowa Taiwan Limited Edition Flieger

Looks like I have not been keeping tabs on this brand. I have just found out that Stowa has issued a Limited Edition run of 70 pieces of their very popular Stowa Airman for Taiwan. I suspect this is in collaboration with the local Taiwan distributor of Stowa.

This limited edition watch, the Stowa Flieger is powered by a hand wound movement, the ETA 2801. It is logoless, i.e. the dial is sterile and features blue hands. It has a solid back and it is engraved with the limited edition run serial number. I like it. I actually thought of getting it and selling my Stowa no logo no date COSC Airman and replacing it with this.

Basic specifications:

Features: hours, minutes and seconds
Case: stainless steel, 40 mm diameter, 9.2 mm thick, lug width 20 mm
Crystal: sapphire
Movement: hand wind ETA 2801, with hacking
Water resistant: 5 ATM

The watch.

The case back. I believe the TW/LE/2010 indicates it is Limited Edition Taiwan produced in 2010.

  1. Hi there, this is a nice watch.

    Is it selling in Taiwan already? And where can I get it?

    Any more details on the pricing as well?


  2. Hi M,

    Welcome to the blog. With regards to the watch, it is currently being sold, well as of April 9, there was 1 piece, by the Stowa distributor here in Taiwan. I am not sure of the price of the watch as I did not ask. The distributor is located near Taipei 101, but I do not know the exact address.

    Best regards,
