    First watch in 2020: DEKLA Turbulenz v.2 White Facelift in da house

    Slightly delayed but it was worth the wait. Today DHL delivered my X-MAS present - the Dekla Turbulenz v.2 White Facelift. Despite featuring the typical flieger triangle and flieger like hands the Turbulenz (= „turbulence“) Dekla Watches classify the Turbulenz as a tactical watch. However this may be, imho the Turbulenz clearly speaks „flieger“ and is a wonderful watch.

    Fit and finish of the bead-blasted 316L stainless steel case is excellent.

    Diameter: 42 mm
    Height: 12.3 mm
    Lug width: 22 mm
    Lug to Lug: 49,5mm [Dekla says: 50mm]
    Crystal: Very well fitted flat sapphire crystal
    Back: Solid stainless steel back, screwed, see pic
    Crown: Engraved screw-in crown, well embedded in crown protectors

    Thanks to the dial design
    + 3,6,9 numerals plus triangle at 12 and double bark hour markers
    + no date window
    + no frills
    you‘ll be able to read the time in a glance.

    Hour and minute hands are white, the seconds hand is red and the color matches the red Turbulenz imprint on the dial. Depending on the lighting conditions the red Turbulenz imprint sometimes disappears from the human eye.

    The watch comes with a soft brown leather strap, 22mm, white stitching, and a solid pin buckle with „Dekla“ engraving.

    All in all the Turbulenz gives you a big bang for the buck, for only €495 an incredible value for money though.

    Another great addition, congrats Mike!

    While I certainly appreciate the traditional Flieger designs, I really enjoy modern interpretations like this one from Dekla, and other manufacturers (Stowa, Damasko, etc.).

    Very nice Mike. Love the dial and hands. Bet it would look good on a number of Nato's as well.

    Enjoy it.

    Looks good, I like the touch of red on the dial. Reminds me of the red seconds hand on my DA44.

    It also looks like it has a pretty generous application of lume as well.

    What's the movement in it? ETA 2824 / Selita SW200?

    Really is an attractive watch and looks much better in your photos compared with Dekla website. Congratulations. You opted not to go with hardened "6steel" version?

    Not sure this will answer your question but I‘ve got 10 Damasko watches. Not all of my watches need to be hardened.

    I really like it. Traditional with a modern twist.
    What movement does it have?
