    Questions about Stowa Marine and Flieger

    Hello,

    I could not find something about 2 questions:
    - the thicknes of the Marine and Flieger
    - Marine and Flieger cases with a screw down crown or not

    Thanks for any help!

    Thickness of the Flieger: about 7,4 - 7,8 don´t have a very precise tool
    Flieger cases with a screw down crown or not? Why should a Flieger have a screw down crown ? My Airman does not have a screw down crown and I don´t miss any.

    Without having ANY other evidence than my eyes, it would seem to me that the Marine and Airman share the same case, with the exception that the Airman has a matt finish, whilst the Marine's finish is polished.

    Hi -

    Hmmm. My Fortis Flieger does. But that's more simply to get the 100m water resistance than anything else, since it's a automatic (2824-2) and only needs resetting every couple of months...

    The 40mm Flieger and Marine are 10.2 mm thick (according to the Stowa catalog). Same case (no screw-down crown, but 5 bar WR), Flieger is a beautiful matte finish, the Marine is polished.

    The forthcoming 41mm Marine handwound will be 10.8mm thick.
    Cheers,

    If you are referring to the screw-down crown, John, Fortis just discontinued them, giving 100m WR on a non-screw-down crown.

    Personally, I think the difference between 50m and 100m is academic (neither are watches to be used permanently near water) ... and, again personally, I appreciate being abele to give the movement a "full load" without having to engage the screw-down mechanism.
