    Unless new date wheels were made, the date would be on it's side if the window were at 6 - is this not correct?
    You are correct. As Jorg said a few days ago:

    (and it will be a bit away from the 6 o ´clock Position we normally do ;))

    There is a handwinding Flieger 40 on the anniversary page, listed separately from the 6498/6497 unitas handwinders. Anyone know what movements might be in these?

    I emailed and was told it will be the ETA 2804.

    Thanks. I wonder what the relative merits are of this movement to the 6498. Or differences in quality etc, other than the 6498 providing the small seconds.

    Do a search here on WUS. ETA/Unitas 6497/6498 vs ETA 2801/2804 has been discussed already.
    But one thing you obviously are interested in: the 2804 hacks and basically is a 2801 plus date wheel.
    Specs:
    Diameter 25.6mm
    H= 3.35mm
    17 jewels
    f = 28800 A/h
    power reserve 46h

    Many thanks, I will do a search. Does anyone have pictures of the 2801/2804 in action? I have seen pictures of the unitas but don't have the other to compare and can't find it on the stowa site. The thing I find appealing with the unitas is the size of the movement relative to the caseback, i.e. lots of movement, not a lot of caseback 'rim'. Don't know how the 2801 compares. Thanks again.

    And of course the 2801/2804 does need a spacer in a 40mm case. Diameter is only 26.

    That was quick! Many thanks. I guess it is all down to personal taste, but I find the unitas a better looking movement. Don't find that wide spacer as appealing.
