The Flieger T02

Why do we like the watches that we like?  Ask ten different watch fans, get ten different answers.  I personally am NOT a fan of Pilot's watches.  There, I said it.  I look forward to seeing the latest flieger offerings from IWC about as much as the "jelly finger" portion of my annual exam.  

But as this is the first year (at least in my experience) that Stowa has been in the actual halls of BaselWorld (as opposed to the Rathskeller around the corner), perhaps change is (to quote Baldrick) "afoot in the wind".

This is the Flieger T02, and my feelings about pilot's watches are perhaps undergoing a change.

Hours, minutes and seconds.  Stripped and boiled down to its bare essence.  

So here's to changing points of view.
