    I have the classic 40 mm. I like the blued hands a lot. Looks like you can’t go wrong. Here is mine: Name:  IMG_0562.jpg

    Absolutely stunning how those blue hands pop in just the right light! Think that’s my winner. Thank you for sharing.

    Agree about the date, in this instance I like how it creates a little more space on the dial. I think it works being that the numerals are fatter on the Verus.
    Other features I prefer on the Verus are the absence of the circle around the outside of the seconds markers and no counterbalance on the seconds hand. As sparce as can be, and completely black and white. The matte case gives it a less dressy/formal look which I like also. Couldn't be happier.

I realize it's a departure in some respects from the "true" Flieger form but after looking over various models for a week or 2 (from different brands as well), I kept coming back to the Verus. I like the 40mm size, not really into blued hands (yet), I don't need a date but I do like the look of it here, and it's the top grade 2824. All for the price of a new Verus with the base 2824. Now I just wait for the arrival! Random internet pics:

    Very nice, congrats!!! I'm in the same boat currently, in search of my first German watch, also looking at the classic 40 type b!
