Top German retailer UW-Fotopartner is insolvent and filed for bankrupcy in january 15. They offered brands like Nauticam, iDivesite, Fisheye/FIX, etc.

 

UW-Fotopartner is famous for basically moving their entire shop to the floor of the Boot show in Düsseldorf each year.

 

For Boot 2018 part of the UW-Fotopartner stand has been filled up with swiss retailer Fantic, which however will not sell anything at the show. And since all goods from Fantic is shipped from Switzerland it's more cumbersome for shoppers in neighboring EU countries.

Sad to learn of this news. I bought my kit from them and had very good help. I wish them the best.

It should be noted that both Nauticam and iDivesite has transfered their product distribution in Germany to other dealers/distributors. So UW Fotopartner is unlikely to recover.
