Thanks for posting the review. I love my Ikarus, and it goes with pretty much any strap, so it's fun to change it up. As the reviewer noted, the dial is the main attraction and sets it apart from the flieger crowd. I hope Stowa never discontinues this model. I am very impressed with Stowa--the brand history, the designs and craftsmanship, attention to detail, and friendly and efficient communication and service. I'm sure it's lots of hard work to sustain a brand in a competitive marketplace, but from where I sit the Stowa team, from Jorg on down, are doing it right.
