    Smile First Stowa Flieger - Jubiläumsuhr 1997 - 66/70

    While currently everybody is only thinking and talking about the FO, I had the chance to get another very interesting Stowa Flieger timepiece.

    It's #66 of 70 from the Stowa Flieger Jubiläumsuhr made in 1997.
    The movement used is a Unitas 6300N.

    The watch is running a bit fast, but apart from that it is in almost perfect condition (strap changed to a new oldstyle Flieger).

    I do not have to intention to start a Flieger collection as I did with my Anteas, but I think this edition is really something special and worthwile the purchase.

    So, enjoy the pictures :thanks

    Beautiful watch and a great option. Maybe the additional value in FO is that it don't have logo.

    That's an interesting piece, thanks for the pics and info PM2K. My favorite pic is of the movement. Is it 40mm w/20mm lugs?

    Cheers, Pat

    It is such a nice watch - congrats!

    But I don't think it will fit in between those ANTEAs..........and if you would prefer to sell, I would spend some money to give it a new home.

    Yes, I think in the last months I learned what I prefer: handwinding and "non-standard" movements

    Correct

    Another remark I forgot in the opening statement:
    Tritium is used as illuminant which adds the slight greenish touch that can be seen in the pictures.


    Unfortunately this became just the first one as I missed the Ebay auction with the Durowe Bremen Flieger having the serial number year 1981

    You really know how to find rare Stowa and Schauer models, congrats! Why don't you compile some pictures of what you have?

    Well my driver in case of presenting a watch is to show a special / limited model that is not widely known or widespread in the forum.
    (or to help in case of questions e.g. comparing size)

    I'm not so interested in presenting the fact that I bought a new watch and therefore presentation threads or threads showing a couple of watches together (well I did with the Anteas for example) is seldom. :thanks (e.g. I would never post a picture of my MO - in the mindset just explained, it is honestly my most boring watch...)
