As an unorthodox thought, might there be actually advantages to the non-limited edition version of the Baumuster B Flieger?
whether it bothers a person is entirely subjective, of course, but one cannot say the differences are so slight that they are not noticeable, imho.
the vintage-colored lume is a pleasant, warm color, though it comes in multiple shades due to the mismatching.
wonder what was the thinking behind "let's move forward with the production of these pieces despite the mismatch..."?
or a second possibility; hand were also being ''additionally painted'' after their production. But the difference between the dial surface and hands' surface made it really difficult to paint them to the same tone.
In anycase; maybe they couldnt take the risk of losing time for this difficult matching process..
6 months and counting. Very pleased with my LE Flieger 36 H.W. Thought I'd feature some leather with colour for the holiday season. Wishing you all the best for a healthy & prosperous new year.
EDIT: 1 more from day 1. EXQUISITE !!!

I think Stowa understand the value of reputation well enough not to release something they didn't believe in. I've had mine for months and love it, so much richer and warmer than the flurescent lume of my previous flieger. All i'm saying is, don't labour the point without seeing one in the flesh.
Hi all, some pics of the 40 mm Flieger I received. Quite a nice piece
Yup the color mismatch between dial and hands is a total non issue. In fact I think it enhances the watch making the time easier to read. This is easily one of my favorite watches of the past two years!

Hello to you all, hope you had nice Christmas days.
I am new to this forum but wanted to show my 90th ALE flieger with logo / no date which I received last Thursday.
unfortunate I can not post any pictures yet as a fresh memeber but could not find the rules when you can do what.
I understand I have to post first before I get additional permissions ?
when I can I will post the pictures here.
I have read the multiple remarks about the color mismatch of the hands and the dial.
I remember reading that the colors were supposed to be as accurate as possible to the original watches from WW2.
It seems that these WW2 watches have a similar mismatch in color so I can only concluded that Stowa stayed true to the original design so what are we complaining about ?
