    Laughing Got a BNIB Flieger Original on eBay !!!

    This is probably my best watch buy ever

    I entered the Stowa FLieger Original craze quite late, actually I have been researching to find the right IWC watch for several months.

    Around christmas I discovered the Stowa Flieger Original, and I forgot all about the IWC.

    The Stowa was the watch I have been looking for, and I was prepared to be on the waiting list "until the end of 2009", so I made a reservation by mail to Stowa.

    10 days ago I suddenly found a BNIB FO serial version wiith swan neck adjustment and glass back for sale on eBay in Germany. The seller got it as a christmas present, but did'nt like it

    He was asking same price as a new watch from Stowa, which I find quite fair - but he would only ship domestic (Germany) and I'm living in Denmark.......

    There was no way I was letting this offer go, so I pressed the buy now button within minutes and mailed the seller to discuss delivery/pickup options - I was ready to drive the 2 x 450 miles to pick up the watch if shipping was impossible.

    Seller was quite reasonable though, and we agreed on DHL shipping to Denmark.

    The watch arrived yesterday - unused and with all papers and boxes, and I'm now the very happy owner of FO # 025.

    To all of you still waiting for your watch I can asure you that whatever the waiting time - the watch is worth it !!! You will not find anything below EUR 3000 that will match the quality and finish of this watch IMHO.

    WOW

    Congrats! It doesn't get much better than saving yourself 11+ months of waiting without having to pay any extra. :)

    Well done! I'm on the waiting list (June 09) and can't wait! I can't believe that the seller didn't add a couple of hundred euros to the price to avoid the waiting list, I'm sure he would have gotten it. Oh well, his loss is your gain.
