Glad to see the OP decided on the Flieger Classic 40 with the handwinding movement. I literally just bought that same watch on the forum last weekend. I currently own the automatic version, but I knew I wanted the manual wind to be more true to the original. I was impatient and bought the auto last year, but the right manual popped up and I jumped on it. Going to sell the auto, now. I just LOVE the simplicity and functionality of the fliegers. Stowa does a tremendous job with them and the lume is fantastic!!!.
No white dial appreciation here?
is there a flieger white dial?

Not bad but I would prefer more contrast on the dial and without date, thus personal tastes.
Finally, my flieger arrived home. I am really surprised how beautiful it is...I cannot stop looking and delighting its hypnotic blue hands. It was a great idea to order the hand wound version together with the Fl 23883 engraving following your recommendations. Very happy with my purchase.
