    Special Flieger Serie will be launched this weekend

    Hello everybody,

    the most of you already know that we have had a delay in ETA 2824-2 automatic movements.

    We took the chance to have a look in our stock and found some handwinding 2801 movements .-), some dials which has been printed with the Made In Germany but without Logo and we decided to give this watch the black framed hands.

    The result is a small special serie maybe we will produce never again !

    About 40 pieces are already produced and waiting to be ordered.

    This thread will be the first information for this watch, in the next days we will make a newsletter and will tell you all other details.

    best regards

    Jörg Schauer

    The idea is to have the watch already able to oder in the shop on Friday this week.
    Please wait for more details in the next days.

    To all who think: "Why they are producing a new watch and still haven´t delivered al other and older orders?"

    A true question.

    The answer is:
    We have been out of stock for ETA 2824-2 movements.
    And i have one special watchmaker who could work additionaly on this watches in the last weeks, which is a nice circumstance!
    This does not touch the normal production any time, it is a additional serie and we are happy for this.

    This is good news.

    Do you have any idea of how long the delay will be for ETA 2824-2 movements? I ordered an Ikarus at the beginning of April, but might just order one of these too (or instead of the Ikarus). I've been wanting a hand wind.

    Are those hands blued?

    Edit: I should really read what is written, sorry, this is probably the only thing that might put me off this :(

    Watch looks great. Great chance for those who want a hand-winding flieger. I guess the "black flamed" hands will change into a different colour, or will have a shiny reflection when they are exposed to light like the blue-steel hands?

    I'm thinking these are the matte black hands used on the Ikarus.

    I don't think so: The hands are "black framed" not "black flamed".
    They won't change colour,

    My mistake. Thanks for correcting me. The black framed hands give the watch a different outlook.

    Hi Jorg,

    I ordered a sterile dialed Airman just this past Wednesday. I'd rather have this watch with the hand-winding movement. Is it possible to cancel my order for the automatic flieger and replace it with one of these watches?

    Thanks,

    Myron
