Hey there,

Been hunting a bona fide Flieger for a couple months now.
Really wanted a Steinhart but no such luck.
A couple got away from me on WUS and eBay when 2 Debaufre showed up (close enough)

Special thanks to pacifichrono for the eSnipe insider track - I'm dangerous now.
Thanks to all for your guidance during the early hunt.

Love the sound/feel of the manual wind and actual ticking!
Swapped out the black strap and buckle for a Hirsch Liberty
May search for the gold trimmed hands of the Steinhart LE one day.
Also wouldn't mind a chrono 7750 version - but need to cool off for a while.
Otherwise I'm very pleased.

Thanks for watching

Great looking watch-front and back. I like the way they did the full seconds sub dial indices. Love the flieger style. Congratulations.

Nice score, Jaw.

I think I'd agree, Alan. Especially with their new "direction."

Nice watch Jaw.Yes, handcranks do tick,even some automatics do like the puw1564.that was a german company,now gone.
Those are magnetized much easier so be consious of your environment when wearing it.
Very clean and simple design.

Boy oh boy, the Nav-B is something else Jaw ! Flieger Has Landed - Debaufre Nav-B 48mm Icon_cheers ..I'm glad you were able
to get such a nice Flieger. The dial is perfect with the cool triangle at
12 o'clock, along with those super looking hands and numbers ! Flieger Has Landed - Debaufre Nav-B 48mm 46145 Then
you have a beautiful movement that almost hypnotizes you when you look
at it. It's just STUNNING imho ! Also think your new strap works REALLY well,
and is a TERRIFIC color by the way ! GREAT job going with Debaufre sir !
Your pictures ROCK, and so does this watch ! Flieger Has Landed - Debaufre Nav-B 48mm 933578 Congratulations and...
Enjoy !!!
