    Bought it. I think I like it. I wish it still had the traditional triangle marker at the 12 o'clock position. But, overall, I think it's a slight improvement. I won't know for sure until it arrives. Already ordered a rios1931 closed-loop flieger strap for it. We'll see...

    Is there any way to order one from outside the US?

    i dont think so. there sites says no outside us sales. unless you can find them on ebay. I will tell you this though. when I get it and I dont like it we can talk about maybe working out a deal with ya. that is only if I don't like it.

    I actually haven't received mine yet, either. I ordered from gnomon watches about 3 or 4 days ago. I ordered the congnac color. I'm not sure I'm going to like it. Might should've gotten the dark brown. Guess I'll see with that, too.

    You can Google image search "rios1931 aviator strap" and "rios1931 pilot strap" and scroll... You'll see a pic of a stowa on a congnac and another watch on the black strap

    I have been trying to snag one for a few months now. I live in Canada so obtaining one from the site is not possible. Between the for sale forums here and ebay I have struck out many many times. I ended up picking up an affordable used Ticino for now until I actually strike gold and am able to purchase one used or new. I refuse to pay ebay prices....someone wanted over $900.00 for a large pilot :)

    I do like the new style but agree on the triangle should be there.

    I would never sell for $900 thats a rip. I would sell for the price I paid for plus the shipping

    Look for the correspondence between aussiejake and slant in this thread on the maratac mid-pilot from the affordables forum. aussiejake was able to order one using some sort of forwarding service. Maybe you can pm him for advice. Here: Maratac Pilot Mid (When is it in stock?) - Page 4
    Slant, aussiejake and lovecraft22 like this.
