Seems that the B-Uhr, especially with a manual winding movement, is becoming rather popular especially this year. Seems that several makers are going for the B-Uhr look. Stowa, one of the original makers of the B-Uhr, is bringing out the Flieger Original. Steinhart is bringing out a manual winding B-Uhr style watch. I have seen several other projects from various independent makers doing the same thing.

Azimuth is going big with their B-Uhr projects. I thought I would pass along this info. I personally like the clean look of the B-Uhr and have interest in the Pilot watches. There are a few different examples of military and pilot watches I would love to have one day.

Azimuth is releasing 3 different styles for their B-Uhr and all of them will have a modified 6497 with center seconds. 2 of them are 48 mm and the other is 55 mm. Very cool stuff.

The first is their version of the Type B (Inner Hour) dial.

Gotta love what they did with the movement. I love that the rose gold color.

Very cool stuff if you are into Pilot's watches. I like the range of sizes that is currently being offered.

I just got hold of one of the Ltd Edition Steinharts---the automatic one, and I've really started to appreciate the clean, no clutter look and feel of the B-Uhr.
Where is a good source for the Azimuth models---when will they become available?
