    I personally like to aim for no date watches, most of the time I feel them just dont fit in well on the face....

    No Date gets my vote as well.

    No date for me neither. Especially when Stowa offers us a choice

    I'm constantly looking for the date on my No Date flieger, but I don't think it's really appropriate for this watch, so no date.

    I disagree. With date is a lot more practical. If you're young, sometimes you forget the date and it's helpful to have a date mechanism handy.

    I have both. I prefer the date versions though for practicality, and I like the new style logo too.

    Re: Stowa Flieger with or without date?

    I'd opt for the no-date with handwind caliber, as with that one Stowa removes the date parts from the movement and crown. I think with the automatics the date bits are left inside, but maybe that is no longer true. A pet peeve of mine is a date wheel just covered up and still doing its thing inside. Various brands just leave the date inside their no-date dial models.

    No date is more traditional for the design and easier to set in the event the watch is not worn every day.
