Not noisy at all in my opinion. Even in a dead silent room, I have to put the watch right next to my ear to hear the ticking of the movement. And rotor noise is virtually non-existent. I previously owned a Tisell homage flieger, and the Miyota movement in it had a fairly loud rotor. (Though at 1/5 the price of the Stowa, Tisell makes a nice budget flieger, no question.)Just two questions to the happy Stowa Flieger owners, is it a noisy watch ?
And how is the automatic version compared to the handwinded version ?
Thanks in advance !
Yes, you can hindwind the ETA 2824-2 movement. However, you really should only wind it when the watch has stopped, and only wind to the point that it starts ticking again, then let the rotor do the rest of the job. In other words, don't treat an automatic like you would a manual. At least for this particular movement, the ETA 2824-2, which is a highly regarded Swiss workhorse. But if you are in the habit of regularly winding it all the way up manually, it could damage the gears in the longterm due to a softer metal, or something. I'm no expert, just regurgitating what I've discovered through my research on the ETA 2824-2. The version Stowa uses in their Fliegers is the "top" grade, by the way, which has the beautiful blue screws and is a better regulated version of the movement.And a last question, can you hand wind the Stowa automatic version if necessary ?
