    STOWA Flieger 40 with white dial - NEW 2018

    "Available from June 2018. The large picture (please click on the small picture so that it appears) shows the white dial with two different date discs with which we still experiment. The date disc with the skeletonized numbers fits possibly better if we only think on design, but if it is practicable we will test soon. Maybe we have to use a normal one that the date is readable perfect, which is the most important matter!"

    No date preferable imo. That with blued hands would be sublime.

    Agreed - no-date hand-wind - would be perfect!

    No date. Absolutely, otherwise no go.

    Actually I’m not digging the stroked Arabics, I would rather have them black. It’s a pilot watch and legibility is top of the to do list. White on white doesn’t really cut it.

    Yeah, but if they were black how would they be lumed? Unless Stowa lumed the entirety of the white dial, like Damasko does with their white dial offerings.

    Lumed hour markers?

    So you're saying have the Arabic numerals be black, but leave the hour marker indices white/lumed? I think that'd be a bit incongruous.

    That’s the challenge with a white dial. Where do you prioritize visibility? In the light or in the dark?

    That's what another manufacturer does:

    I'm not sure if it's the ideal solution but something will need to be done for legibility.
