    It certainly did for me. I just bought an SMP since the FO didn't make an appearance.

    Maybe next year, we'll see only the FO in 3 Limited Edition flavors: black, old radium, and blue. I'd love to be discussing the FOKLE, FORLE, & FOBLE this time next year.

    Besides, I need some time to save up.

    Nicely done. Echoing some other recent posts, I will keep my wallet sheathed until something better tickles my fancy.

    I will buy Stowa flieger only if 6498 central seconds is available. Nothing less. Even if I have to wait for the 100th anniversary :)

    PS: I also do not like how Stowa limited watches are getting out of hand. They are starting to resemble Panerai in that respect. Too many I think. Plus the numbers are getting ever higher. The blue Flieger was 100 pieces, the blue MO - 200, and now the blue MA is 250. Seriously Stowa?

    I agreed on most of it but bear in mind stowa customer base probably grow over the years. They should have stick it to maybe 200. Since I remember last time LE used to be sold out easily. It may be the economy but I prefer a more thoughtful LE who sold out.

    And I urge if possible pls stop the "I want FO bandwagon" or "i will buy if its FO" in this thread. Given chance I would want it too. But for now, please refer to watchrecon and pray. Luck is quite important, cause you will never know when it will appear at for sale or advencalendar or stowa raffles.

    Lets focus on the announced LE. Just wait for pysical watch picture.

    Agreed. You got a point here regarding the flood of limited editions. But: As long as there is a demand, Jörg will answer this demand, he would be stupid not to do so.
    For me it resulted in the decision not to order one of the 90th anniversary models (as already posted). I do not think I will miss a lot. That being said I am fine with the MABLE being issued in a run of 250 pieces. I can imagine that there is a special interest in the Pforzheim/Black Forest area since it is commemorating both, the Pforzheim 250 anniversary (250 Jahre Goldstadt Pforzheim - Das Jubiläumsfestival) and Stowa's 90th anniversary. A different perspective imho.

    I don't think it is a bandwagon, just an idealised iteration of the Flieger. And what is a forum for if not to discuss the watch/watches you idealise and admire? This thread began as a 'what would people like to see from the anniversary edition..' So what better place to discuss the watch people wanted to see?

    Relax. Off course welcome to share. It's Internet anyway.

    The thread started many months before the announcement. Off course I have to ask what LE we want.

    I'm just saying let's appreciate the watches.

    ...and will not be issued.
    ...and would not be a "real" Marine. Almost all Marine chronometers had a seconds sub dial.
