Is it purely on looks? I am having a hard time understanding why Stowa is significantly better than Archimede or Steinhart autos which are priced at about half of what a Stowa would cost. Is it exclusivity? Is there something particular in the design? I refer back to a debate that went on with Foo and others about the value of spending 1k on simple ETA movement. Without reopening this debate, after further research I have become more convinced by comments they made.
