Ultimately I ended up with the Stowa Flieger Big-Eye with manual wind movement.

Nice pick, can’t go wrong with that. I’m a sucker for a manual wind.

Nope. The Longines big eye is one of the finest looking watches currently on sale IMO.

Saw it at Windupnyc. It was nice, but after seeing it I would go with the Longines.

I did really like the blue dial version though, and the Lander blue/green dial chrono was my favorite from the brand.
.
This my thoughts on Farer. They make a really nice watch and all the colors the use looking amazing in pics. In person it was just another watch. :shrug: They just did not wow me. :scratch:

Nicely done! I haven’t owned a chrono in nine years, but that’s one that never fails to catch my eye.
