    Is this normal?? - Stowa Flieger Klassik 40

    I just received my first Stowa Flieger, very excited! However, in the first few minutes I noticed a thin gap or notch between the case seams near 6 o'clock. Does anyone know if this is normal design or a defect during manufacturing? I'm hoping it is some kind of purposeful design indentation feature because I will be very dissapointed if I received a faulty Stowa.

    Your new Stowa would be faulty if there was no gap,

    LOL! That is a relief. Thank you for the links, pretty funny how we all think alike.

    Stowa should really add a note or diagram clarifying designed intent. I'm pretty sure majority of people who buy these types of watches share similar 'eagle eye' mentality.

    I don‘t think it is necessary to explain something which a) has been used since decades by watch manufacturers ) is obvious. Anyway, will talk to Jörg in a fortnight about extending the FAQ.
