So I received a brand new Fleiger (with logo and date) last Friday. Here's a summary of my ordering experience and some quick initial impressions of the watch:
- placed order mid-May, estimated delivery end of July
- received payment notification mid-July
- Stowa e-mailed about 10 days later to inform me that there was a problem with the engraving on the back of the cases they just got in, so there would be a slight delay until after their August break
- received shipment notice Tuesday of last week and watch was delivered on Friday
Overall I'm very happy with the service / support provided by Stowa. They were prompt to respond to any questions I had, both before and after I placed the order. Everything went more or less according to schedule, and when there was the delay at the end they were good at keeping me informed.
And I am quite impressed with the quality of the actual watch. Just a simple design that is executed extremely well on all fronts. I was worried it might be a bit small but after trying it I think it will be perfect. Also seems more versatile than I was expecting--I could see wearing it with a suit no problem. Haven't had time to use it enough yet to confirm accuracy or power reserve.
Anyway, you know what they look like, but here are a few pics (for reference, I have a 7" wrist):
