I will be placing an order for a no logo Flieger Classic, but am a bit torn on the blued hands of this watch. I am strongly leaning towards ordering this watch with black hands instead.
Looking for the forum's opinion on if:
1) This is blasphemous...pilots watches historically have blued hands, it's a signature mark, and a sign of craftsmanship, etc...
2) The actual aesthetic impact of swapping out the blued hands, and whether it will detract from some of the appeal of the Stowa Flieger. I will admit there is something attractive about the very dark Navy, almost black look of the blued hands under certain light conditions (based on pictures I have seen).
Is anyone able to opine on the frequency/light conditions under which the hands look royal blue almost? This is a look that does not appeal to me personally.
