    Just to be sure (I need to hear things three times), the Durowe has a quick-set date but the seconds hand doesn't hack? Is a pseudo-hack possible -- where you reverse wind and temporarily stop the seconds hand from moving?

    Confirmed no hacking and yes quick-set date. Not sure about the other item.

    I hope Sandra is given a big glass of brandy tonight. I think today must have been stressful, I alone sent her five questions, she must have been barraged with emails. I'm very impressed that I was getting same-day replies, given the amount of new models/orders/questions they've had to field today. Another tick for Stowa's personal service

    I'm a little unclear, do all the limited editions come only with solid engraved caseback? Or do we have the option of see-through caseback/solid caseback? I'm also debating if I need another flieger. I got a Type B last year...wish I had waited for these ones with the radium! Thinking about getting a standard flieger...but must have see-through caseback for me. I'm assuming all versions of flieger have the radium dial?
    Just starting my watch collection...

    Oris 581 7592 40 51 (Artelier Complication)
    Zenith 03.0516.685 (Defy Classic Power Reserve Elite)

    Zodiac Astrographic 2000
    Victorinox 241425 (Dive Master 500 Mechanical)
    Stowa Flieger Baumuster B with 215-1 handwind

    It never occurred to me that they may be solid caseback, that would be a crashing disappointment.

    Uh-oh, not stopping at 5 emails to Sandra today? Or is it tomorrow already over there? Close enough, I suppose, as I don't think she'll read it until tomorrow.

    Ha ha, poor Sandra, at the mercy of all these geeky anxious stowaristas. I have not committed at this stage, so no need to dash off yet another message! The details on the flieger movements state 'blued screws' surely they wouldn't bother with blued screws if they were using a solid case? Although the website details are a bit unreliable, some manual winds are stated with automatic movements, no date models claim they have the date on them... Fortunately Stowa refine their watches more than their website content!

    I'm glad Sandra was helpful to you all, not so much for me.

    I asked if the 12 marker on the 40mm will be like the sample image or like the standard 40mm, as it's usually really squished on the 40mm and in the sample pic it looks really nice.

    "You will find further information about the 12 o’clock marker in our online - shop. "

    Oh.

    She must be very busy. I guess the Archimede Bronze is still top of list for vintage style flieger.

    Sent them an email. If it's see-through caseback, I'm placing an order for 40mm handwind flieger to accompany my type b :)
