    The pics didn't upload correctly so I had to redo. Should be fine now.

    Anyway, that is one beautiful, minimal piece! Congratulations, and I hope that you enjoy the beautiful timepiece for many years!

    Also, TOTALLY NOT ENVIOUS. Nope, not me, nah ah, TRUTH.

    Re: STOWA's 90th anniversary Limited Edition-2017

    Just received my anniversary edition Klassik Sport a few days ago and I couldn't be more thrilled with this watch. All my watches tend towards to the larger end of things, so I wasn't worried about the size, but the Sport wears perfectly with the curved lugs--even better than I had hoped. I wear a Seiko MM300, Sinn U2, and other Seiko divers a lot, and the Sport wears closer to the wrist than most. I also like a solid, rugged feeling watch that can handle an occasional dunking, and the thicker case of the Sport is perfect for me. Blued hands are gorgeous, and I love the fact that the hand lume is different from the dial. Lends a lot of character to the watch and makes it much more interesting to look at in my opinion.

    Sorry for the poor iPhone photography, but here are a few shots for this curious about the Sport.

    Congratulations Craithorn! Wear it in good health, and wrist shot when you have time, please! Also, how does the dial look in different lighting conditions? Is there much of a sunburst effect?

    The numerals are not as white as they appear in the photo. They are exactly what one would expect to find on a Marine watch as far as size and proportion to the dial size are concerned. They are more of a matte silver than the pic would have you believe. In addition the dial changes from various shades of blue to almost black in different light conditions. The numerals contrast fairly well with the polished hands. The movement is exactly as advertised being somewhat plain and undecorated. I was back and forth over whether to have a solid caseback. I finally decided to have the movement visible when I found out the solid caseback would also be supplied.

    The dial doesn't have a sunburst effect. It is a true Matte Dial.

    I understand what you meant. It's a tough call men. The dial looks fine for me. Movement look fairly basic but it has been previously explained that it is kept that way to preserve the original taste. The caseback looks nice tho.

    I will probably wear this pretty casual. I suggest u keep it first. Someone can take over if you really not liking it.

    That's good to know, thanks for the clarification.

    Yes, will be picking it up today. I should mention I also prepaid quite early (when I submitted the initial request).

I assume FedEx would include any handling fee they would charge at the time I paid the taxes and duty. Here's hoping.
    You're good to go. Done.

    That is a great looking Flieger! I know what you mean about solid feel. Even the Stowa Flieger 36mm has that "overbuilt" superb quality.
    [a little story] > I dropped into an exclusive watch shop the other day (German high end Fliegers that I won't mention here) & was not nearly as impressed with their initial feel impression. The sales person asked about my Stowa Flieger, & as he handled it, never having done so before, I could see in his eyes that he was surprised with it's quality. How's that for validation.
