Not new to watch collecting but new to German pieces. Have been seeking out a solid, reliable well made German Fleiger for quite a while. Passed on Laco, Sinn, Junkers, Archimedes and a few others. Then I finally decided to place an order for an Airman Original and was given a June '09 delivery. So I wanted to find a pre-owned Airman to keep me happy until next year.
This week I scored a mint cond. Airman Auto LE (71/80) off of the TZ SC. I am one happy camper. This watch not only looks fantastic (superb build quality), it is one of the most comfortable watches I have ever worn. It keeps amazingly accurate time and the lume is unbelievable. I own a variety of Swiss pieces, some costing 5 times as much but none are any more satisfying to wear than this non-logo Auto Stowa. A true bargain in the watch world. I'm a convert!
