    Impromptu get together in Engelsbrand

    I visited Pforzheim today with my colleague for an appointment at the GO dial factory. We decided to have an impromptu gtg at Stowa with Jorg.

    I tried on the new Ikarus Sport and while it is much bigger than the Ikarus classic, it was a good fit and handsome watch. Screw-down crown instead of the onion crown is also interesting.

    Then I tried on the Marine chronograph. I really like this watch but oh man I want the raised numerals in blue That would be a perfect watch and I would gladly email Mrs. Santa for my Christmas gift. I am hoping for 2016/17. BTW, Jorg is planning a pink (and red) gold case for the cream color chronograph. I think that's a good idea as it will add warmth to the overall look. The cream color chronograph will now have the raised numerals again

    Then Jorg surprised us with showing the Edition #1 of the Watchtime (German magazine) 100 LE blue dial pilot watch. This amazing galvanized dial is manufactured in a Pfrozheim dial factory. So, I did what any good WUS would do The brown leather and metal straps are a great combo for this watch. Apparently, this is selling out fast.

    Finally, the gtg is not complete without a selfie with good company and Tito's vodka from Austin. It was a fantastic and fun evening.

    Thank you for the awesome welcome - Viveca, Nina, and Jorg!

    Cheers,
    Bhanu

    Tito's, classic.

    Thank you for sharing. Looks like you had a great time. Visiting Stowa HQs is definitely on my travel list in the next few years.

    Looks like a great time and your watch pictures are most excellent. The LE blue dial is really sweet. Lucky you to see it in person.

    Wow! This blue dial Flieger is extremely beautiful. How can I get a hold of one? Any technical spec available?
