    Still, I'd love to hear Jorg's take on this.

    I'm pretty sure this was not Jorg's intention. Why else would they make the lume match in the pre-production pictures if this was not the intent?

    For a Limited Edition priced at a premium over their serial Fliegers, I expected better QC than this.

    Exactly. I don't buy the spiel about the hands being 'aged' to replicate WW2. If it was intentional the earlier pictures and news advise surely would've indicated it. I'll wait for an official explanation and further pictures from production models before deciding.

    I had ordered and paid for an anniversary Flieger and expressed my concerns to Stowa via email about the hand/dial color mismatch. I received a response indicating that I can keep my order, switch it to another watch, or get a refund ... and also that more pictures will be coming our way.

    Whatever one may think of the dial and hand colors, I have to say that this is the type of prompt and positive customer service response that has earned my respect for Stowa over the years. I'm sure we can all think of other companies (watch-related or otherwise) that fall far short of this. Whether I end up with an anniversary Flieger or not is less important to me than being treated fairly and honestly. In this respect, Stowa has succeeded, again.

    Sad to say I Followed you and cancelled my Baumuster B.

    On the up side, I will soon be the owner of a Partitio Handaufzug in white. It uses old radium super luminova also.

    For all the opinions, positive and negative, there is a general incomprehension about the lume colour. It would be great to have more informed understanding from Jorg, to help give everyone a picture of what the intent was, and if the result matched the intent. Good information clears up most things. I know we had some small explanation in the newsletter but I don't think that satisfied many. I guess baselworld has been keeping him busy but hopefully soon we can have a clearer understanding of what these edition watches are about.
