    Re: New 36mm Flieger - suggestion/opinions?

    Size looks good to me. I’m faced with the opposite situation. I just got a Classic 40 and I’m wondering if it looks too big on my 6.75” wrist. I’m in between holes on the stock strap too so I ordered a new one.

    Thanks everybody for the replies. I feel much better about the size after wearing it for a few days. I'll look into some of the watch bands you all mentioned as well!

    If anyone is wondering, my wrist is ~6.7in. Loving the handwound movement and "clean" look.

    Looks like it’s the right size. And the strap will break in over time. Give it a few months of daily wear and it’ll take on the shape of your wrist. The flip side of the rigidity of the Stowa straps is that they are durable and patina beautifully as they age.

    Should have gone with the 40. Fliegers are supposed to be somewhat on the larger side. Yours looks "ok" in pics, thus the comments saying it's fine, but the reality is pics like this make the watch look larger than it wears on the wrist in real life. Even a 40mm flieger is too small or just barely acceptable except on the daintiest of wrists.

    Strap will soften with time.

    I think it looks just great on your wrist. The Lug to lug on the 40mm may be too much of an overhang.

    Great looking watch! I’m a huge fan of smaller watches (my last purchase may not reflect that ).

    Try a Nato. Blushark alphas are soft. Also the strap styles EO, WS, & NickMankey are comfy.

    I wear a 36 mm Flieger Classic as well. My wrist size is 6.75 inches. It is such a perfect and versatile watch. I swap between a 43mm Verus and the 36mm Classic and both work very well. Jorg's case designs are incredibly forgiving. Every time I swap these watches I get a little cognitive dissonance, but it fades away after a minute or two. With the right strap the 36mm fits into pretty much every wardrobe.

    I'm really glad I got the 36mm flieger. Given the spartan nature of the dial, it is the perfect size such that the black space doesn't leave something wanting. (Tangentially, the dial design for the Verus with date is perfect for larger watches as the hands, date window, and starker markings fill in the dial wonderfully.) The 36mm case design also makes the dial and watch look bigger than they are. Furthermore, every single marker is lumed, which the 40mm ones don't have (I believe). I believe the 40mm flieger dial has a spacing that is more like old WW2 flieger watches, which I think draws some people in more. Personally, the 36mm is king.

    Perfect fit. I am in the market for the same model.

    I think the lug width particularly looks good for your size of wrist

    Looks great and a perfect size in my opinion. I was very close to getting this watch recently - went with the Sinn 556i in the end. I prefer the 36mm flieger as the bezel appears narrower and accentuates the dial and face of the watch more than its larger cousin. Great watch, and the right size for you as well I think.
