    Flieger 40 ETA 2824-2 seconds hand doesn’t hack

    Hello,

    I’ve noticed that when I pull out the crown on my Flieger Klassik 40 with ETA 2824-2 my seconds hand sometimes doesn’t hack (stop). Some times it does, some times it doesn’t. It’s a no date version, so the watch has only 1 crown position.

    Is something wrong with my watch or am I doing something wrong? I’m gentle when pulling out the crown, but I do always pull it out to the fullest.

    Any input is highly appreciated, thank you!

    I don’t know how gentle you do it but if you pull it out normally you should feel the click. If it doesn’t hack even after it pops out with click, then I’d assume there is something wrong with it

    Yes, it clicks and crown pops out, but seconds hand doesn’t stop. The watch is still quite new (2 months old), and I haven’t noticed this before because I set it once a month.

    Is this something worth sending the watch back for a check under warranty?

    Yes. The chance is that the spring for the setting lever has just slipped out of position or the stop lever just does not sit correctly on the pivot.
    Kind regards

    My handwind Flieger with no date does the same. It hacks most of the time but sometimes it doesn't. Found a similar thread about the issue: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/eta...s-1729370.html

    Thank you for the link. People seem to report as this being normal, not only for Stowa, but also for watches at $10k+. Interesting.

    I also have the same issue as reported in that thread that crown positions aren’t very well defined. Sometimes it works perfectly, but sometimes it feels like it pulls two positions out. Very strange.

    No,

    not so strange.
    Probably your watch is driven by a movement with calendar complication and the 'two positions crown'. But, as there is no date window, you consider there only one postion to exist.
    My recommendation:
    Check the crown's position and you will see that you can pull out the crown to two different positions. Inner one to adjust the -invisible and non-existent- date disc, outer one to adjust time,

    Hi Volker, thanks for your suggestion, but Stowa has actually removed the second crown position normally used for date, so the watch wouldn’t have phantom positions.

    Well, the watch started running WHILE I was setting the time. Now I know it really does need attention. Such a shame, was really hoping it would work out of the box new.
