    Just ordered my first Stowa Flieger!...but I have a quick question...

    I decided to go with the Flieger Classic 40 no date/no logo with manual wind movement. Very excited to get it. It will be my first Flieger/German/manual wind watch. Was debating with myself to go with the Flieger 41 Small second model with the manual wind Unitas 6498. But as beautiful as that movement looked, I much prefer to have hack-able seconds as well as a central second hand. From some searching, I guess there was a limited edition version just like that a few years ago with a modified 6498 movement, but those are now fetching $4-5k on the secondary market, and that is a huge stretch for me.

    Anyways, on to my question . How long should I expect to wait to get the watch in the mail from Germany. I ordered directly from the Stowa website and I am located in the US.

    Thanks guys. I am really excited about this one!

    You‘ll get an e-mail from Stowa when money is processed and watch sent. Usually 3-5 days with carrier FedEx. There are a lot of reports available here on WUS, just do a search.
    Kind regards

    Great choice!

    Initially the same question since It had a lead time of 2 weeks on the website and was buying it for a gift (time sensitive) - I didn’t have to worry at all because it took 2 days from ordering to arriving on my doorstep via FedEx. Basically processed and shipped order the next day, and another day to deliver to me.

    I can't speak to the wait time as far as them actually making your watch of course, but as far as shipping -

    They use FedEx International Priority to the US, FedEx states maximum 2 days to the US for most zip codes using that service.

    Some, especially on the east coast or midwest, can get it overnight -

    I'm between NYC and Philly and received 2 different watches from Stowa overnight - got the email from them with tracking number, Englesbrand to my front door before 10am the next morning.

    So yeah - from the time you get the email, expect 18-48 hours until it's on your wrist most likely. Congrats!

    If it means anything, I think the central seconds looks a little better, especially with the lume.
    I'm close to getting one of those myself.

    Post pics when you get it?

    I totally agree. The long lumed central second hand is what really did it for me. I ordered the watch this past Wednesday. Still waiting on shipping notification, but I will definitely be posting pics once it comes in.
