First and foremost good afternoon and thank you in advance. Long time lurker first time poster and need some advice on a Stowa.
I have been going through reader, re-reading old posts and would like some clarification and help.
I was convinced I was going to buy the Flieger Klassik Sport as it is the bigger of the bunch but after researching it appears the dial is the same size as the others but the case is larger? For those that have it, is the case that out of proportions with the dial or does it blend well?
So then this brought me back to the Klassik which is 40mm and in my opinion will be too small on my small wrist, which is around 8.25”.
In my quest to find another option I see Stowa has the 41mm version and many people love the size and movement but the biggest complaint is that it has no sweeping second hand, which in my opinion is a big deal for this watch.
So I’m really torn between all three, but especially the 41mm and. 43mm, and feel the “sport” will wear better but I’ve seen reviews or comments that either love or hate it. I’m not a purest by any means but I like the classic look and want a clean no date/logo dial but would prefer a second hand.
If anyone can comment as to the size of the sport to the other two, and especially the 41, and their thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it. I feel the biggest debate I’m having is the 41 with no second hand vs the 43 that’s out of proportions.
Lastly, I’ve done some comparisons to the other brands and was curious If that would be a better option? I know this is the Stowa sub forum but I know one particular brand has a 42mm watch and one can customize it to your liking. It seems to me that Stowa has the better watch but the other has more options.
Again, thank you in advance and I apologize for yet another redundant thread but I wanted to get some current info.
