Unfortunately I am really poor at photographing watches, hopefully someone with some skill in this area will be getting one of these special editions and they can be shown off in all their glory.

Hmmm. Lume looks a bit splotchy to me. But maybe my Ikarus would look the same in such a closeup shot. The difference in shades between hands and numbers doesn't bug me. Although matching them shouldn't have been a big deal; Damasko has a few models (DB limited editions for Timeless Luxury) with a similar color lume that is matched on hands and numbers.
I will be looking at that dial many times a day for many years & it's "comforting warmth" appeals to me far more than the "cool sterility" of the serial version. The watch just seems far more interesting to me, not to mention it's vintage significance. My father & mother were both in the Canadian airforce so the said significance applies to my being born on an airbase as well. I will even have my birth year as serial number on my Flieger. I have a high respect for the German fliers (& all fliers for that matter), who are hereby honoured. I just hope the watch keeps time.
Edit: As of right now there are only 3 handwinding 36mm Fliegers remaining for claim. The last of both sizes of the Klassik A dial hand winders.

dhtjr, I agree the lume is a little splotchy -- same on mine. Must be hard to do. Have to admit it's better (though not as thick) on my IWC Mark XVI, which is three times as expensive. Still love the Stowa LE -- the warm tones are growing on me
Would love to see pics of your new Stowa and your XVI! Great pair and congrats.
