    Soon available: Marine 36 Small Second

    Posting here if anyone isn’t following the other thread. Just got mine in and took a few quick shots before I have to scurry off to work. I’ll take some more photos and do a write up this weekend if not before. I have a very square 6.75in wrist, so the top-down shots are probably more accurate to an average 6.5in wrist. Short version of my first impression: it is exactly what I wanted it to be and I’m incredibly happy with it. The size comparison shot is with a Seiko SKX013 (38mm case, roughly 36mm bezel). Stowa was kind enough to ship the watch with a brown strap instead of the black (I wanted a more casual look and will likely be getting a few more straps anyhow).

    Thanks to our trusted resource, Mike Stuffler, for starting this thread. I was about a day away from ordering a Flieger 36 when he posted the information on this model. I know I would have loved the flieger but I am certain I made the right choice for me and my small collection.

    Mike, thanks for posting. What a beauty! It looks terrific on your wrist! The comparison to the SKX13 is very useful. And I like it on that brown strap vs black. When ordering the brown, did you have to specify what shade of brown?

    Thanks again and enjoy!

    Sorry if it has been covered somewhere, but what was the story behind the twisted hands?

    Oh my heart... I love everything here. The diameter, the thickness, the proportion of the hands, arabic numerals, small seconds and crown, that gorgeous movement...

    Interesting how it doesn't appear that much bigger than the SKX013, around the same size.

    Thank middle! I specified that I wanted dark brown just to be sure. I think this color is a default brown for a lot of their non-fliegers. I just asked Sarah for dark brown in our email conversation.

    I know I can't guarantee anything about your wait time, but I didn't get my FedEx notice until Dec 2 and then I picked it up just two days later. So I am guessing once you get the notice, you will be just a few days away from delivery.
