    Has anyone received a shipping notice or update on delivery?

    I just came across an Urban Gentry YouTube video reviewing the Stowa Klassik. He shared a quick image of vintage flieger watches which immediately made me think of these LE ones. A couple of the pieces have mismatched dials and hands but the third one in particular looks awfully similar to the new ones coming out. I thought it was interesting and reiterates some of the vintage photos shared in the last few pages of this thread.

    Voila. Stowa original plan is to compete with Laco Erbstuck with inconsistent hands lume. You guys are slow. 😁 that's jorg plan after all. I knew it from the beginning.

    I came across someone's seemingly valid explanation on another forum as to why [vintage Flieger] radium lume has different colours. Along with this is someone else's observation that the hands are "hollow" & filled - creating more open exposure than the dial markings.
    I leave the screen capture inclusion from another forum up to mod discretion.

    Very interesting. I just wish we would get a little bit more info directly from Jorg at this point but overall I like the look more and more.

    Thanks for keeping us all updated.

    I will be probably cancelling my order the moment Heike answers tomorrow. 40mm Handwinding No Logo.

    It's a shame, but on top of the "thick" lume application that looks kind of amateurish in some photos, they posted a picture of the 36mm on a 17.5cm / 6.8 In wrist and it looked too big. It looked like it had an overhang even!

    My wrist is 6.75, so the 40 will definitely not work.

    It's a shame - I would had to go to Archimede for a flieger in a decent lug-2-lug size, but it's not the same. Will miss on the Handwinding and the historical provenance…

    Since 40mm fits almost all 6.25 wrists I can't share your views.
    Fikk and TheOneInYellow like this.
    Kind regards

    Wrist shots can be misleading.
    I have a 6.25 wrist and both the 36 and 40 mm are doing fine.
    I can't imagine the 36 to big for a 6.75 wrist.

    I posted some pictures on that thread too show the difference in size between the Partitio, a flieger 36 and the marine automatic which has the same case as the flieger 40.

    What serial number did you order, out of curiosity? I ordered a 36mm because the 40mm were all gone.

    Thanks! I actually measured my largest watch (39mm, 48mm L2L - 1997 Submariner) and it's my opinion that that's the largest my wrist can handle. I just actually sold a 40mm Nomos Tangomat GMT because the L2L size of 50mm was way too large for my wrist (As was the expansive white dial).

    I'm surprised that the 36 that was pictured in the @stowawatches instagram feed looked that big on what supposedly is a 6.8 Inch wrist

    I got the 53/90 of the handwinding 40mm without logo. I will let you know if I end up cancelling it.
