There are so many fantastic photos here. I never thought I'd see the day when I spend so much time looking at photos of watches. Indeed, to pin oneself down to one Stowa is not that easy.
FO1 on leather nato...
what a lovely FO1, the new Flieger Handwinding 6498 doesn't has the second hand make me so disappointed
Thank you. You wouldn't believe it, but the strap is a Fossil, lol. If you are patient and actively search, you can pick up a FOLE or FO on the used market. That's how I got mine.I felt the same way and was going to order the 2801 version, but the lovely movement and larger size won me over (at least in theory, I won't have it until May).
Thank you. I love it even more now!I love this shot...it shows everything that is great about this watch--the elegant brushed case, *perfect* onion crown, blued hands, and the heaping mounds of lume applied to the dial. That and history is why Stowa is the King of Fliegers.
Is it wrong of me to wish there were something in the blank round space in the center? Maybe just the Stowa S? I guess I'd just like it to be signed, but maybe that's going against the history of onions.*perfect* onion crown
