    Sell my Stowa 90th Anniversary A dial for a b dial??

    I have to admit Iíve been fascinated with the B dial for the last year. I purchased Stowa 90th with date and love it but man Iím debating hard whether I should sell it for a Sport B or Classic B dial in the Stowa line. Or even maybe a Laco. So tough. Appreciate your thoughts.

    I've had a bunch of A and B dial flieger watches (Stowa, Laco, IWC, Damasko, Sinn). I always found the B attractive, but ended up keeping the A and selling the B. I usually have a small rotation of watches and the A was just more versatile.

    I also preferred the 2801/4 (or Selitta equivalent) to the 6498 or auto version of the watches.

    What if you get the b before selling the a, then sell whichever you ever up looking less?

    I’ve owned both A and B dial fliegers and always end up preferring the cleaner look of the A dial. But to each their own.

    I can’t find the chart anymore, but didn’t Stowa make far more As than Bs in the late ‘30s/early 40s?

    B-Uhr are the only dials I buy when looking at pilot watches.
