I've got a growing interest in Stowa. What I'm reading shows that the Airman with Date is only about half the cost of the Airman Original, even though the AO does not have a date function, and they appear to be very similar pieces. I see the AO has a modified ETA Unitas vs. the Airman w/Date which has the ETA 2824. Other than that, and the AO being 1 mm larger case size, why is it that the AO is double the cost of the two, even w/o a date feature?
Second question: I don't suppose there are any of the Stowa MO 80th anniversary LEs left, are there? I love the look of that piece, but wasn't really following Stowa that closely back when it was released.
