    Stop-second function on the Flieger Original Serial watch

    Hi there,

    Besides the Swan Neck Regulator is brought back to this watch, would you like to see the stop-second function too? Show me your opinion. Thanks.

    The stop-second is fully part of the specifications of the B-Uhren.
    Now the 80 FO LE have posted here many time, i must admit that, it's very difficult to see that one of the main and most important characteristic ( to me ), is suppressed.
    I guess the industrial process must be difficult for Jorg, i don't know the exact reason.

    Just to be precise, the original B-Uhren just hacked (i.e. second hand stops immediately when the crown is pulled), IIRC, and did not have the the more elaborate system of the FO which means that when the crown is pulled, the second hand moves at its usual pace and stops the next time it reaches "12".

    I really like the stop seconds feature of my FO. It means that when traveling between time zones, you can adjust the time without affecting the accuracy of the seconds as would happen if the watch hacked.

    A simple hack would do. I understand the hack function on the FO limited (which stops at 12) is quite difficult to make. A very nice plus but not a must-have.

    yes! i received it also. I was quite surprised by the number of 400 reservations.
    But it will hack, and that's a good news for me!

    we just have to ( continue to ) wait now!

    T1026, thank you for setting up the poll. Just got the email from Stowa that it will indeed have the hacking function for the regular production of Airman Original
