Stowa currently seem to prefer to announce new models on IG rather than via FB or newsletter or on their official forum. On today‘s FliegerFriday Stowa announced a Flieger Ikarus Bronze, with light brown or light grey leather strap, with auto or handwound movement.

I would like opinions on Stowa's bronze look--it has a treatment/process which creates a vintage look. No additional patina can be expected.

Thoughts?

Well, the FliegerFriday Bronze LE sold in no time. People seem to like how Stowa‘s bronze looks like.

I have one of the first editions of the Marine in Bronze - it is easily the best bronze case I have seen (and I have seen many) I like the creamy brownish gold appearance, it looks perfect. I am not a fan of green patina or green skin - this is why I skipped the tudor bronze and many of the Oris models. I also bought the flieger but greatly prefer the caseback to be bronze (I got the manual wind not realizing it was not) so returned it. I now wish I had not.

Thanks for your thoughts. I have the Marine small second in silver, manual wind. It's my current dress watch, but it gets no wrist time. So, I'm looking towards bronze.
Best,

Bill

I really like the combination of the gray dial and band with the bronze. I’ll definitely consider it once it’s available.

Any idea when this will be available or pricing? I commented on Stowa's Instagram post, but it seems like they don't respond to comments on IG.

If you want one of these, you can expect the pricing to be exactly the same as the regular bronze 40mm A dial date version. They will ask you to order that, and to type “Ikarus dial” in the comments. I know this because I have asked how to order a special order like this before. For that price you will get a the highly finished top grade movement, or you can to handwound for a bit more. Here’s a screenshot of what that cost will look like:
