    Maybe because it does not convey the chrono feeling, commonly understanding is that a chrono should have at least two pushers and two sub counters. The Stowa Flieger chrono isn't main stream.

    Do you want to wear a chrono like most people do wear? Or do you prefer a forceful unique design?


    This LE model looks very cool to me and I always come back to it when Im trying to decide.
    So did I. When it was launched some years ago I didn't like the watch. Last June I confessed (as a member of STOWA Friends / FriendsMap ):
    "Fünf Jahre habe ich gebraucht, meine anfängliche Aversion über relative Gleichgültigkeit in tiefe Zuneigung zu verwandeln: Jetzt liebe ich sie!"
    ( It took five years to change my early aversion into halfheartedness before she won my affections: Today I love her! )


    Im just wondering why its not getting any love in this forum and why it doesnt seem to be a very popular model.
    Not all love is loud and audibly. Some like to enjoy without boasting about this timepiece.

    Is the absence of the running second hand that big of a deal to people or what?
    The hand isn't absent - it isn't necessary.


    I wish you success in working out this conflict,



    Volker

    Is this forceful unique design? I mean is that a bad thing? I just think that the "normal" chrono face is so cluttered with stuff, there is too much stuff. Im leaning more and more towards the flieger chrono, its just a lot of money, thats why i have been pondering for years :D

    A chrono dial does not need to look cluttered....

    I think many tend to choose a flieger watch that has similarities with the original models thus the chronograph is less popular but the regular model got a price in 2012.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with this watch and the LE is also beautiful.

    i bought one of these things on a brown strap because i think it befits a "vintage" look, as does the differentiated coloring.

    for me, the end result - faded, brown hues - makes total sense, whether or not one chooses to believe in the purported cause.
