    No, they will not look fantastic, they will look like being completely out of place. Foreign budy in an environment it does not belong. Blue screws without decoration around them makes looking them lost. It needs a "package".

    Here's an example of what a "package" mean to me, more or less: Highly decorated Durowe auto; 7528 as you can see. Now imagine the screws being blued. Pic btw taken 2009 in Basel.

    No ooooo. No date on MABLE. Fine. Give us the choice to choose whether date or no date.

    If there'll be no decorations, put a solid caseback in there.

    Or give the MABLE ETAs, and the Fliegers the Durowe (solid case back) :) Please? ;D

    "Decoration of the movement:
    It will be definitely not decorated with Code Geneve or something like that.

    Maybe we put blue screws in it - this can be a option, but still this i will think about if it looks good or not.
    (of course this will be a idea we test because the color blue is the idea of the watch ;))

    Pforzheim and Durowe did very good movements, but never high decorated - i will keep this.

    A swiss decorated movement will be not authenic for this kind of movement."

    **********************************

    I agree with Jorg on this. I also wouldn't be apposed to a solid case back. It might be better suited to this watch since is sort of retro piece. Date window? Either with or without for me. They both look good.

    I'm more or less impartial on the movement finish and case back but I do think blued screws would look nice, and I'm quite liking the date, but mainly because of the font and the way the windows is cutted, gives it a touch of vintage/retro look and depth.

    I agree the date window looks pretty good... for a date window....also, solid case back is a splendid idea and I think it should be a option (I would def go for a solid if it was available).

    I don't like the date window at 3 because of the marker beside it. Kinda ruins the flow unlike when it's at 6.

    Date window at 3 would probably suit the Fliegers better.

    No! What's the purpose of having an uncommon NOS movement if you can't look at it?

    Edit: Sorry, to each their own. Had a knee-jerk reaction there. :)

    I put in my order and said no date. Now that I've seen the date, I may go for the date instead. The original Durowe date wheel is very cool and unique. Gives the watch a retro look and separates it even more from its regular MA counterparts. I'm ok with the three o'clock position and no decoration on the Durowe -- authenticity over optimal looks when it comes to a 40 year old movement.

    The idea was to celebrate Pforzheim's 250th, not Durowe's. The use of the Durowe movement is just part of the package.

    The MABLE looks sensational. Putting an undecorated movement with a clear caseback will make the watch seem half baked. I hope you don't see the solid caseback as a compromise, because it really isn't.
