Yes, but a true original WWII Flieger is 55mm diameter, and not a functional wristwatch...so it's not really an accurate comparison.Well it is a lot of money. However, if you have $5000 or more, you could buy a true original WWII Flieger. I saw a dealer listed TWO of these watches on his website recently.
I must say I was surprised to see you sell yours Daniel.Thanks for the free advertising folks! :-!
No doubt, the price was ambitious, but I figured that was what it was worth to me, so if someone was willing to jump, great. If not, I love it enough to happily keep it.
It lasted all of a couple of hours, and sold at asking price, so....|>
I'll miss it dearly, but the chance at a really great JLC Dualmatic came up for a fantastic price, and I had to try for it.
Here's hoping I have no regrets!
Yeah, I'm a little surprised too, not least since I was really enjoying wearing it at the time that I posted and it sold! I have nothing but superlative accolades for the watch and Stowa in general. It is clearly of exceptional quality, and I wouldn't have parted with it except that it has considerable overlap with my MIH watch (a definite keeper), and I have long liked the Dualmatic. Plus the latter fits better with my overall 3-watch collection.I must say I was surprised to see you sell yours Daniel.
Along with one of the Panerai I own, and an oversized vintage Omega, the FO would be the last watch from my collection I would part with.
That said, I'm pleased for you (and for all current owners that can file that benchmark away for future reference) that you were able to get your asking price. |>
I'm also pleased that my assertion above was correct. :-d
