Malaysian Belle by STOWA - Limited Edition of 33 pieces for Malaysia


Now for some watch related news for the watch enthusiasts. For the first time ever, Stowa has decided to partner with Red Army Watches (RAW) Malaysia to launch a special edition available only from the local watch retail maverick. Only 33 pieces of this edition are available and each of the 33 watches will be customised with a serial number and an engraved name of the owner on the buckle.

The unique rendition of the Stowa Flieger watch made exclusively for the Malaysia market is inspired by the traditional Kebaya and its form fitting hint of smouldering sexiness that harkens back to the idyllic villages of yesteryear. Nothing will get you on the upswing faster than donning a tribute to the past.

Malaysian Belle, a centre figure in the artwork, is our own interpretation of pin-up girls, done in Kebaya style. Popular in the beginning of 20th century, pin-up girls were not only used in the consumer product advertisements and the entertainment industry, but also on the aeroplanes all across the world. In our own world of imagination, we would like to think that the famous Kebaya doomed by Peranakan ladies confer pared down feminine sensuality via unforgettable aesthetics, which offer an insightful peek into the culture and majesty of the female form.

The single artwork presented by Stowa for Malaysia, with a uniquely Malaysian theme. The rare edition will definitely go down in the history as one of the rarest collectible pieces in the watch collecting community since there are only 33 pieces made, coupled with the unique story behind it as well.

There will be a small gathering to present the watches to the privileged owners on a date and venue to be decided in the near future once it’s sold out. The numbers of which number 4, 13, 14, 24, and 34 are omitted.
