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.
