    When was the newsletter issued? Was it within the past few days? I don't seem to have received anything although I registered earlier.

    Never mind - backtracked through the thread and found taurnilf's original post about a week ago. I presume this is the newsletter people are referring to, and that it was sent out about that time.

    Some of the more recent posts here made me check out the "Erbstuck" or "heirloom" pieces on the Laco website (I know, not to everyone's taste).

    My own Laco Munster Erbstuck (A-dial), which I am wearing as I type this, has hands and dial lume which are virtually the same colour. A couple of pics of the Leipzeig (B-dial) on the website however, show hands and dial colours which are quite different - more like the vintage pics that B. posted. Funny thing is that the different colours appear to blend together more harmoniously on the Leipzig than in the pics of the LE Fliegers - probably because the entire watch has been "aged".

    What this variation on different Laco watches also suggests however is that it's not impossible to "mix-and-match" dial colours to resemble the blued hands, for those who are bothered by the colour difference. Laco hands are also blued.

    Whilst I am not put off by the different colours myself (admittedly, was a little startled at first!), I can well understand the feelings of Stowaristi who are. If Stowa could make a decent go of matching the colours and at least offer this as an option, I'm sure this would go a long way to bringing the faithful back into the fold.

    Has Stowa ever done a regulator type watch? I have been craving a regulator and it's surprising that there aren't many available at the price point that Stowa aims at. It would be phenomenal for Stowa to issue (or reissue) a blue Sunday dial regulator with bronze color hands. (Drool)!

    Are hands and markers of Partitio (White Dial) same as what 90th edition is going to make ?
    Seems like the Partitio succeed in equally colored the hands and markers

    Does anyone know if Stowa removes the date wheel on the 2804-2 hand winding movement for the 90th anniv. Fliegers? Just wondering about any effects of turning the hands backwards.

    If I remember correctly it's said somewhere in the previous 50 pages that the 2804 will be modified to remove the date wheel and the position of the crown.
    I'm not sure about the 2824.

    ETA 2804-2 will come with the Geneva stripes and temperature blued screws. It is planned to make also an anniversary engraving. Please look in our news section and Mr. Schauer will give the information in future.

    We will remove the date wheel and modify the crown position so that the crown won’t have the extra position.

    Thanks again Fikk. I am currently going through all the posts also & only got to P.17 so far.
    I had also emailed Sandra some time ago about the decoration & she confirmed Geneva strips & blued screws. Edit: And hacking.
    Not sure if we'll see any Perlage but I'm excited about the whole package.
    On a side note - Anyone got some more pics of the L.E. Fliegers ?
