    I wish to make one more point about the opportunity available at this time. I spent a BUNCH of time thinking about the Flieger 40 vs Flieger 36 anniversary watches. I love me a 40mm watch. BUT I want THIS 90th anniv. investment to be valid into my old age (not far off ) because it is so special. The time is here when a smaller watch is more practical FOR ME. History, tradition, German reputation in design & craftsmanship, & CS all in one exquisite package.

    I suspect there are many of us that are reluctant to buy a 36mm watch. Understood. I was there too. Keep in mind that the Stowa Flieger 36 wears a whole lot larger than most due to the narrow bezel & a dial that isn't very much smaller than the 40mm dial. The absence of the outer ring that connects the minute markers on the 40mm, helps to open / free up the aesthetics of the dial on the 36. As a bonus, the hand winding watch is only 9.2mm in case height, which makes it more versatile in my view. Put a gator or shell cordovan strap on it & you now have a more than acceptable dress watch. Sink the spring bars into the some thick buckskin & you can go lookin' for trouble in a fighter plane.
    If you have the means & REAL desire for a Flieger 90th anniv. LE , there aren't many 36mm handwinding remaining. It's a substantial decision but it ain't comin' back.

    Very well stated. I ordered a 36mm handwinding because the 40mm was sold out, and that was my only doubt about the watch. I had buyer's remorse and was considering cancelling or changing my order (waiting is hard), especially after the initial lume fiasco. In the end I decided to stick it out and the recent pictures of the 36 have reassured me. The fact that I'm still so excited to receive the watch nearly 3 months after ordering it means I made the right decision :)

    I hope this post is considered appropriate and in line with honouring the Stowa Flieger LE pilot watches. Wish they were better pics but a tribute just the same. Mod. discretion.

    Well, I guess I'm one of the few that have bought one of the Klassik Sport Ltd's. Looking forward to delivery in June from the sounds of it. Have mostly Seiko divers and a Sinn in my small collection, and generally prefer robust 43mm + for my 7+ wrist, and really like to have minimum 10 atm WR for all my watches, so this seemed like the one for me. I love the thicker bezel more beefy look even though I know that's a bit different from what many Stowa buyers are used to. Only small watch I have is a 50's Seamaster handwind inherited from my dad, and while I love it for the heritage, it feels tiny relative to what I'm used to, so I just couldn't see myself wearing any of the 40's much less a 36. Handwinding is cool, but I always forget to wind my Seamaster when I wear it, so that was out too. I actually like the lume look, so that didn't bother me at all.

    I get the allure of the smaller watches though, and those are all fine looking pieces, so I am glad Stowa is offering so many choices for the 90th anniversary editions even if my bank account isn't.
