    Flieger Klassik Sport 43mm - any owners with wrist shots?

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forums...longtime lurker.

    I'm very close to ordering a Stowa Flieger Klassik Sport - 43mm. I love the look obviously, but beyond that the combo of top-grade movement, 200m water resist, etc all are really tempting.

    My only concern is the size - I have 6.75" wrists. I do wear a few 42mm watches comfortably, especially since I tend to wear them low - crown touching back of hand - but I'm most used to 40mm. It's really the 51mm lug-to-lug that has me a little concerned - but the sport is just so damn tempting with all of the little upgrades over the normal Flieger.

    Does anyone here own a Sport - doesn't matter if it's A-type, B-type, Ikarus, etc - I'm just curious to see wrist shots of that 43mm sport case and if you could kindly mention your wrist size?

    Thanks a lot for any help anyone might provide!

    Welcome also.
    I have the same sized wrist. First picture is taken in the mirror.
    It's a great fitting sport watch. You'll love it.

    I have a 6.5 inch wrist and wear the Klassik Sport almost every day. It's a lovely watch and definitely a keeper. You will not have an issue.

    In fact, I was considering getting the TO2 since they're the same case size and shape. The only problem is the crown on that one -- it sticks out. Whereas the Sport's crown is much smaller and comfortable.

    6.5 inch wrist as I said earlier.

    You won't regret getting it.
