    Not that I don't like the anniversary watches ( I am even contemplating buying one), but I actually hoped for something more extraordinary and special. Just one watch (not 10) with new case, dial, bracelet(strap), something interesting in materials, design or both. I can't understand the Durowe movement incentive. Is it better than an ETA top? I think Jorg should have chosen a different color for the MA giving me and other owners of MOBLE a reason to buy this one too. I imagined one watch in 90 numbers and at a much higher price point. I imagined more imagination.

    Exactly what I thought as well.

    Quote from my post one week ago
    I would have expected something more unique. Something worth to commemorate a 90th anniversary, something new, something smashing, breath taking rather than modifications of the already existing. Something like this



    or that



    Something which is also a reminiscene to the watchmaking tradition in and around Pforzheim. Something showing us the achievements of 90 years of watchmaking rather than (just) face lifts.

    imho
    First world problem, I know.
    So I decided not to (pre)order any of the 90th anniversary watches.
    Kind regards

    Confirmed that the fliegers have see-through caseback. Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm torn...this is literally the perfect pilot watch I've always been looking for. (40mm or less, see-through caseback, manual wind, vintage lume). I couldn't find this perfect combination for years, so I "settled" for the Stowa Type B last year. Now this comes along, but I'm not sure if I can justify getting a watch so similar...then again, it is my birthday coming up...

    I really like the Top Gun Miramar 41mm, but automatic and solid caseback...

I guess there are three choices for me, compromise the front, compromise the back or walk away. Watch lust is such a painful thing...
    I'm holding out for the FO too. I was a little disappointed that none of the 90th anniversary options were for the FO w/central seconds. I guess I'll just keep waiting.

    I agree.
    I ordered the Flieger Klassik 40 automatic no logo LIMITED.
    I don't like the handwind one because the movement is so small.
    In fact, I love the Flieger Original like this:

    I felt the same way. Hand wound FO w/central seconds probably would've separated some more of my money to Stowa. As it is, I don't think I will be getting any of the anniversary models (already have a blue Marine Original and a 40mm 'A' Flieger)

    I'm surprised that I didn't see the concept of the Chrono Tachymetre here.


    https://www.stowa.de/en/Flieger+Klas...d+90+years.htm

    I was expecting the tachymetre to be on a bezel, not on the dial.

    I think the Christmas raffle created some false hope that there would be Flieger Originals in the offing

    I was just wondering, would the flieger klassik 36mm handwind be decorated in a similar manner to the flieger klassik 41mm handwind?

    I understand that they are different movements as the 36mm uses an ETA movement but would the "Stowa" still be inscribed with blue screws in a fashion similar to the image posted 3 posts above?

    Have no idea how to edit a message here - correction: "inscribed with "Stowa" on the movement along with blue screws and other minor detailing".
