    Stowa posted a close up pic of the 36mm flieger le on instagram. Lume application on the dial looks less clean than the regular model, closer to the actual vintage piece.

    Edited: Forgot to mention the hands on the above pictured example probably belong to an A model, the hour hand being too long for the B dial, which would make the watch a franken of sorts...

    I love the new logo, it is modern and subtle on the dials thanks to its dimensions. I have ordered a Flieger 40 Automatic no logo 90th anniversary edtition and, if it were available with logo, I would have chosen the logo version.

    And regarding the slightly differences between the lume on the dial markers and the hands it is not a deal breaker for me so I am not going to cancel my order.

    Plus this instagram video shows nice wooden boxes!

    Here's a "non-franken" vintage. Whatever.

    Re. 90th anniv. Flieger orders: There may be those who are unwilling or unable to adjust to change. That's understandable. It more often than not can be quite unsettling. But I prefer this new and exciting look. My Flieger Classic LIMITED order is solid. I am of the opinion that the day will come when these particular Fliegers (all 90th anniv. Flieger models), will be an exceptional acquisition.

    When gazing at the above Flieger photo I can't help but get to day-dreaming a bit. One must admit that there is a good chance of some incredible history to that watch considering it's condition & patina. Perhaps the officer who strapped it over a flight suit climbed into the cockpit of a Bf 109 & took it into a dogfight or other mission. Perhaps many times.
    I understand that navigators wore these watches and if my day dream has no logic - I will stand corrected. I will enjoy it until then.

    Wartime Flight Officers, as was common, had a special kindred feeling for each other, regardless of the colours they wore. I would suggest that only THEY could fully understand that. It is a privilege, I feel, to honour such a tradition & effort with a Flieger watch.

    All 250 are claimed as of now, so it looks like a great investment. Can't wait to hear the reviews.

    I am the proud owner of two Stowas, but when I gaze at the 2017 Flieger LE's I can't help but imagine the look on whoever at Stowa first put the hands and dials together must have been something like this...

    Many thanks for the pic, B... I think that settles it for me. I also note that on the video that Stowa posted on Instagram there appears to be a vintage Stowa flieger in the glass display and the hands seem to be a different colour too. If anything it may make it look more vintage that there is a colour difference (which, after all, is the look that I'm going for). My Flieger Klassik LE order is also solid.
