    Any wrist shots of the 40mm B Dial?

    I was looking at getting a Stowa with the B dial (inner hours, outer minutes)
    but want something that isn’t too large.

    Does anyone have the 40mm? Do you find the dial too small with that dial design?

    Thanks!

    Sorry mate I'm wearing my A dial at the moment but I can tell you I like the B even better. When I was tending towards larger watches (42-44mm) I found the 40mm Stowa to feel a titch small but they feel just right now.

    Unless you have a monster wrist definitely go with the 40mm - perfect watch for fall...

    You got a point here, imho. I own the Stowa Flieger 40mm Baumuster A. Own the TO2 (43mm) as well. The B dial in 40mm to me looks too compressed.
    All Baumuster B I own are from another maker and are 42mm in diameter.

    I have to say I find the B dial too cluttered. The beauty of fliegers, and what always attracted me to fliegers, was the superior legibility. You are never ever in doubt what you read off the watch, even if just at a glance. I'm not sure B dial achieves that.

    That said, I find the 40mm diameter "smarter" wearing - does that make sense? I use my 40mm also for the office and nobody bats an eye, however the 42mm is reserved for active weekends and such. My wrist size is 175 mm.

    Good luck with your choice, and come back to us with pictures when you receive the watch.

    Thanks guys!

    I was thinking the same thoughts about 40 being a nice case size but a cluttered dial size.

    But that wrist shot doesn’t look bad at all. Hmmm.

    What is your wrist size (circumference)?

    About 7.25in. I can wear a 40mm Sub without it looking too small, but a 44mm Planet Ocean borders on the oversized.

    As winter is coming, I was thinking that a 40-42mm would fit nicely under a shirt cuff. But I don’t want to rob the B dial of its legibility.

    I think you can easily pull off 42 mm on 7.25 inch.

    Well yes, I agree. But the watches come in 40 or 43mm IIRC.

    I’d like to go smaller for wear under shirt sleeves. But not if the dial is tiny.
