    Flieger Klassik Sport-Hand Wind

    Warming-up to this watch.
    Does anyone know if the hand-wound version has a screw-down crown?
    [Auto has screw-down but no info regarding manual-wind on Stowa website].

    Screw-down crown on a hand-wound would be a bummer.......if a push-pull crown-Will the W.R. still be 20 Bar?

    As far as I know the Flieger Klassik Sport and the TO2 do not feature a screw down crown. 200m wr.

    As far as I could remember, the Klassik Sport has a screw down crown and is listed as such on the website (English version, not in the German one though):

    Contacting Stowa is the best way to know for sure.

    The flieger klassik sport I purchased late 2016 with a handwound movement has a screw down crown. Maybe it’s changed since then. But for what it’s worth..

    I have the 90th anniversary flieger klassik sport. It has an automatic movement. What I purchased it though, they asked if wanted the screw-down crown or the onion crown so it would be an option to get either.

    Heard back from Stowa regarding the crown on a Flieger Sport-Handwind:

    "Kindly note we can offer you the watch with the ETA 2804-2 handwinding movement with
    a screw down and a pull down onion crown. Of course are both crowns water resistance"

    This is a big plus.............don't know off-hand if there is any other handwound flieger with WR-20 Bar.
