Finally broke down and bought a Flieger with chronometer movement. It's even more impressive in person than the pics I've seen. I'm very very pleased, and it only took two days to arrive (another advantage of living in the UK)
it can keep its brother Icarus company
The tan strap really changes the "mood" of the Icarus and makes for a nice change. For the next days, however, I'm sure the Flieger will be on my wrist!
