    Stowa Flieger White 43mm on mesh bracelet spotted on Instagram

    It is not on their website yet but on Instagram Stowa posted a Flieger White in a 43mm case on a mesh bracelet.

    40mm is looking great. I dont like their 43mm cases at all. I wish they would just scale the smaller model to bigger size. 40mm watch this typ looks too small on my wide wrist. This is the only reason i still dont own their flieger model.

    I own the 43mm Stowa TO2 and probably will order the Flieger 43mm. Case fit and finish is just perfect. Need to know price for the white dialed Flieger.

    They always mess the lug size, 22 mm would be perfect for this watch, 24 mm is too wide...I flipped my FO1 (twice, really tried to like that watch...) because 22 mm was too big on 41 mm case, made it look off balance to me, and as a rule all Stowa lugs are too long, not by too much but just enough to bother me...

    Agree
    I want a flieger
    love the Stowa looks, heritage & quality - but have 8.5" wrists and the 40 is way too small, but the heavy case on the 43mm is just wrong aesthetically - but intriguingly, in a white dial, the silver SS case doesnt appear as heavy

    If the 40mm case with increased water resistance to 100m +/- screw crown were available, I’d already own this Flieger. The 43mm Ikarus Sport I briefly owned (had numero uno) just seemed too much given lug length for my 7.25” flat wrist. Alas...

    I have the Flieger Sport Klassik and wear it on my 6.5 inch wrist but it wears fine.

    The next watch I get will definitively, finally, and without a question, be my last one!
