    May I ask why people seem to prefer the handwinding movement to the automatic one on the fliger?

    Personal preference. I already have enough automatic watches. For no particular reason, I want my pilot watches and any future dress watches to be hand wind only. It just feels "right" to me.

    Thanks Mike and Zinzan. I'm glad it can quick set the date. Kinda surprised it's not hackable though. Can the stem be "leaned on" to make the minute hand stall? I can do that on certain handwound movements sometimes, although I suspect it's not good for the watch. I dunno, actually I am less picky about exact time setting and keeping these days anyway because time is all relative isn't it?

    Ordered #121 this morning. Nice piece to look forward to this year.

    @hidden, I agree, the Radium Fliegers are so darned tempting. I'm eyeing the handwound 6498 version or one of the chronos.

    From page 22, I hope it's an option, as no see-through caseback is dealbreaker for me

    I have decided to add a solid casebake with a special engraving !

    This will be IN ADDITION ! - without changing the existing price point ,)
    (i remember discussions with Mr.Hartmut Esslinger he says: "Try to give the people always more than they ask for or what they expect "

    Everybody can choose later if he wants to have the solid casebook on the watch or beside the watch !

    And i also will write again: "It will come a non date version and a date version - and it seems that the date on 3 o-clock will work pretty good ,)"

    So , please wait a bit till i have drawn and have done a nice solid casebake for the MABLE.

    And if we do the blue screws i am not sure yet.

    I think to have it pure is good.

    I don´t like the completely engraved Durowe movement - this looks in my eyes overpowered and overdecorated - but this is only my own personal taste. ;)

    I have done by myself 20 years ago in some Digital 1 watches from my Schauer brand - today i don´t know if i would do again- maybe it depens the complete concept of the watch !

    bye for now

    If you are interested the weather in Engelsbrand, please just have a look at the actual livestream from Engelsbrand ;)

    (it is just another try of the technic we will use in the future to stream our live action from the manufacture, building and steps of production your STOWA watches ,)- so the STOWA banner in front of the sky is just to give us a test of the used technic and how strong it is ,))

    bye for now

    Wait. I think the solid caseback as jorg said is for the MABLE. It will not be feasible to have it on all flieger LE too.

    When jorg replied, we are in the discussion on whether adding blue screw to the Durowe.

    From my understanding, all LE flieger will be radium dial, engraving on number. The rest is based on the model itself.

    ^Ahhh, I see. Sorry to add to the confusion. I'm torn between 36mm and 40mm. I already have 40mm Flieger B, maybe I will get the 36mm in type A for my skinny wrists

    It is not clear if this is referring to solely the MABLE or the fliegers too. If the fliegers too are offered with both casebacks then that is very tempting. So long as the clear case back still included serial number.

    I only recall Jorg discussing two casebacks in regards to the undecorated Durowe movement. I would not assume two casebacks on the Fliegers, but I can understand your desire for confirmation on that.

    Nah. It doesn't make economical sense for Stowa to offer engrave caseback for all flieger. Off course unless you willing to pay for it.

    Agreed, it is not logical and not necessary on the fliegers. Not really a fan of novelty engraved casebacks anyway. So long as the caseback on the fliegers is crystal/clear it is all good. Who knows! I like how the drip-feed of information from Stowa creates a little excitement and pandemonium in the Stowa fraternity :)
