    Stowa Flieger Klassik Sport: Question for owners

    Hi everyone,

    I have one of these coming to me all the way in Singapore and I am very excited about it.

    How thick a Nato strap can this watch take comfortably?

    I have seen pictures of this on some owners' hands and it seems the space between the lug holes and the case is rather wide, which is great because it gives me more options.

    Another question from me -- would a 6.5 inch wrist accommodate this? I get mixed reviews.....

    It is your preference, I would think.

    I have a 43mm Citizen and I like how it sits large on my wrist, which is roughly your size. The lugs do not overhang.

    Thanks, Andy, for your input. That's the hard part -- trying to guesstimate sizes from the Internet. You really don't know until the FedEx package arrives at your door.

    Right now, there is a greater than 50 percent chance that I will get one this year...... A calculated gamble.

    You should be fine. They wear well for most sized wrists, but they are a larger dialed watch. I would keep the strap thickness to a reasonable amount and not go too chunky.

    They look great on leather Natos.

    Don't put it on a Nato. Why would you want to obscure the nice display back? It's a large watch too which means it will sit even higher if you have it on a Nato or Zulu style strap. I recommend a substantial leather strap to best balance the watch. Bas and Lokes in Australia makes some incredibly nice ones and they are well worth the money.

    Appreciate the advice. But I wear only Natos because in extremely hot and humid Singapore, my wrist is almost always sweaty unless I'm in an air-conditioned environment. So Natos are most comfy for me and the strap provides a protective layer between sweaty skin and watch.

    Hello, you can put a Nato on it, 24mm will be fine, and the 43mm is not very big for this watch, the dial seems the same that a 40mm watch :

    The AR coating is amazing !!!

    It was in the package when I bought it at a Spanish seller, so I don't know, probably a Spanish strap maker... :/
