    Help: Just Bought Flieger Klassik. Need Advice

    Hello Fellow watch lovers. I just bought a Flieger Klassik 40. I am really loving the watch, but I just noticed what might be a manufacturing defect. I'd like to see if others here who own this model have the same design.

    On the Bezel there is a very small gap where the Case meets the Bezel at the 6 O'clock position. The bezel is perfectly flush with the case in all locations around the watch except below the 6 position. See attached photos.

    If you wouldn't mind looking at your watch and letting me know if yours has the same or not. I would like to know if this is an issue I should have addressed. Other than cosmetics, the only issue I could think for this would be it was polished too long in this one spot. Maybe it could allow moisture inside the watch and cause an issue down the road?

    Please post pics.

    Thanks!
    Michael

    I think that is there so that a tool can be used to remove the bezel if needed.

    Same thing on mine. Never thought to examine that area with a loupe until now. I have no concern.
    Just my $0.02 as always.

    Okay. Thanks guys. Being the sort of individual who is "Type A", I am glad to hear this is normal. Sometimes I tend to fixate on defects - perceived or real.

    Thanks for your post and the responses. I hadn't spotted it on my flieger (it is there) and I am glad to have read this thread before I did.
