    side-by-side pic's of Flieger Origional next to the Airman ?

    I have placed my name on the rather lengthy waiting list for the Stowa Flieger Origional, and was wondering if any lucky Flieger owner happens to also own the Airman ?
    I was hoping to see how much "beefier" the case of the F/O is over the Airman... i know it is thicker, but wondered if the case has a bit more presence over it's little brother...

    Or, maybe a pic of the Airman next to the Marine Origional ?


    thanks, Jeff

    Picture Re: side-by-side pic's of Flieger Origional next to the Airman ?

    I don't have any images at the moment that more well represent your side by side request, but there will be others near their cameras that, hopefully, will soon post more images.

    The Airman Automatic is 40 mm wide and 10.20 mm thick. The strap size is 20 mm.

    The Marine Original is 41mm wide and 10.80mm thick. The strap size is 22mm.

    Here it is next to the Marine Original until the FOLE arrives.

    excellent - that is exactly what i was trying to grasp,
    that the M/O & F/O case has quite a bit more heft than that of the Airman.
    you have helped me make my decison, to stay on the waiting list for the F/O
    rather than getting the Airman ( which is a beautiful watch in it's own right ).
    I just feel the F/O better suits my wrist size.

    thanks so much, Jeff
