    Ikarus Flieger - ETA 2824-2 in Chronometer Quality (but with no Official Swiss Certificate) Pics

    Would like to share with potential Stowa customer and all : )

    Received this Stowa watch a couple of weeks ago and finally managed to take some pics after waiting for a new strap to arrive. (Sorry for the poor quality as it was taken with my hp.)

    I really love it, especially the dial and quality is top notch. Managed to get some angled shots to show the Blued hands.

    Hope you enjoyed it! Cheers.

    This indeed is one nice watch!

    Is it a standard rotor? Because I thought it was the B-Uhr rotor?

    Edit: Sorry, this is part of the chronometer-quality option if I'm not mistaking.

    Congrats on a watch so nice, that I purchased her as my second Stowa watch (after MO) - and that has been about 4 years ago.

    Nothing happened to her accuracy in these years, she works like being just made - it is Stowa-quality,

    Great pictures!

    I've been eyeing this watch lately and I think it might be my next purchase. I prefer the standard crown, but I simply cannot decide between the blued or black hands.

    Congratulations! It looks fantastic!

    I am wondering how long it took to fulfill your order? I ordered an Ikarus in the exact same configuration back in late November with a target date of late February, but I am just dying to get my watch!

    Hello Thijsmens,

    This is the standard ETA rotor, but decorated and with Stowa Engraving.

    You can request for Stowa German Silver Rotor but I prefer this way : )

    Get the Blued Hands elixxxer.... you can get both of 2 worlds (It can be black and blue depending on lighting and angle).
