I'm looking to buy a traditional fleiger watch which I intend to use as a daily wearer. It will have a fairly tough life in a military setting (which is what they were designed for, after all). All my research points towards the Stowa fleiger - build quality, heritage, customer service etc.
My only concern with the Stowa model is the caseback. Rather than a screw-in caseback it appears to be a flat caseback held to the main body of the case with 6 small screws. Is my assessment accurate or does the caseback screw in to the case as well?
Is anyone in a position to describe the engineering of the caseback and comment on the robustness of the sealed unit? The images I have seen of the caseback on this and other forums give the impression of a weakness in the integrity of the case. Thank you in anticipation.
