    New 36mm Flieger - suggestion/opinions?

    Greetings,

    Just dove into the "nice" watch world, and recently received my 36mm flieger. Coming from a Timex 42mm, I was very surprised at how small the watch was after opening the box. After wearing it the past couple of days, I think I'm starting to get used to the smaller size. Fit and finish is great, but I'm looking to see what others think. Does it fit well, or should I have went with the 40mm?

    Also, for me the strap leaves much to be desired. It's too stiff/bulky, and I'm a bit in between hole sizes. I'm open to recommendations if others have found nice strap combos that have a little more "give" and are thinner. Let me know, look forward to the comments.

    It looks great! 40mm would have worked as well. Just a matter of personal preference.

    I think that’s just about as perfect as you can get size wise.
    Try shopping for some colareb straps.

    The size looks perfect. Fliegers may have originally been larger watches due to the purpose, but the small size projects confidence. Never mind the fashion (currently big watches but likely moving towards smaller sizes). Real watches are bought to be used for 50 years or more...

    Looks good to me. I'm not crazy about the stock strap either.

    I would never have guessed that it was 36mm. I don't know the size of your wrist, but the watch represents a perfect fit. 40mm may have been too large.

    These look great on one or two-piece Nato straps if you want something more comfortable.

    Watchbandit, a sponsor here, also has a great selection of straps that look good on Stowa's, as another suggestion.
