Hands-On with the Stowa Prodiver Blue Limited

Postby koimaster » May 26th 2017, 3:56pm

Stowa’s hardcore dive watch, the Prodiver, has been around for a little over a decade now, and in its 10th year Stowa released a new blue dial version limited to 200 pieces. Being a fan of both Stowa and blue-dial divers, I couldn’t help but check it out and take the opportunity to look back at some of the lineage of the model.

Stowa may be more readily associated with their Flieger and Antea lines, but the German brand first introduced their Seatime dive watch in the 1960s, and the following decade saw a variety of different dial designs and case shapes bear the name. Somewhere along the way, these variations hit upon both a case shape and a dial/hand design that would later become recognizable traits of the Stowa Prodiver available today.

I met the whole Stowa team at a Worn and Wound roundup. Their class of service and knowledge is very impressive. notoriously back ordered which speaks for the quality, beautiful minimalist fliegers.
