    One with blued hands reflecting. The colour saturation of the *radium* can change depending on light reflection. Very attractive.

    Nice photos B ... really highlights the variation due to light. I have the 40mm anniversary Flieger (hand-wind, no logo, no date), along with an older 40mm Flieger (same configuration but automatic). I prefer hand-wind and the LE's 'FL 23883' engraving, but the dial painting is slightly better (smoother) on my automatic. I have the utmost respect for Stowa but am up and down regarding whether to keep the Anniversary watch. Your pics pique my enthusiasm for this unusual, but interesting, offering from Stowa. If I could sit down with one watchmaker and have him walk me through the conception and development of a watch, it would be Jorg and the 90th Anniversary Flieger.

    @JohnM
    I can't relate to the variation of *smoothness* in dial painting, having only the LE myself. If I take a 10X loupe I can see the paint surface magnified enough to show *texture* but I mean really? . With normal vision it looks immaculate , on the 36mm dial anyway. What I had to pay in CDN $ for this watch is considerably higher than USD, and even so I'll always be more than happy with my *keeper* . That dial is just stunning & has a fascination for me that the *sterile* white dial can't even approach IMO. I hope you will reconsider hanging onto yours - at least until you become absolutely sure you'll not regret parting with it.

    Edit: I seem to recall others questioning the dial paint surface some time ago & it involved other 90th anniv. models. Perhaps different dials / sizes have a bearing on these perceptions.

    WWC - Breakfast with Stowa Marine Automatik Blue Limited Edition on a brand new custom made blue leather strap. It took me sometime to find an ideal strap for this little fella. Great watch match with quality strap. Edit: photos taken after breakfast

    I'm also getting a new strap for the MABLE.

    I'll go for a dark blue ostrich leg strap. Now waiting the strapmaker to receive the material before choosing the cut.

    Too bad these are sold out now, except for the larger versions.

    I got my MABLE the other day. I ordered without a date but I received one with date. Still waiting for a response how to correct the issue.

    Very nice matching lume on the dial/hands! Very impressed with it.
