stowa flieger
« on: January 20, 2015, 09:17:49 AM »
I'm considering a IWC Mark XVII and i came across STOWA where the flieger just looks as good as the Mark17. The price is a factor as STOWA's price comes way lower than the IWC. Any reviews or suggestions on the STOWA Flieger?

I think the stowa and laco flieger are really big bang for buck

If u prefer something even more vintage like, the Laco flieger with bead blasted finish is even more retro. I have mine on the closed loop strap... Unfortunately I'm letting it go...

The 2824 is not only robust but easy to service. Spare parts are readily available.

IMHO, I would go for IWC mark series. Used watch with mint condition can be found with reasonable price. Tho reasonable is a very subjective thing  :Cheers:
