Incoming IWC!

I've been eye balling the IWC pilot chrono the past 6 months. I finally pulled the trigger! Found this never worn Spitfire for a reasonable price and jumped on it. Next week can't come soon enough .

Congratulations.

IWC are The True Masters when it comes to Pilots Watches.
I would struggle to justify buying any other brand.

IWC tradition, history, great looking pieces and it will last a lifetime or more.
I have had an IWC 40yrs now.

Enjoy.

IWC Pilot chrono is a great watch ! Enjoy wearing. Check out the santoni straps too, really special touch when not on the bracelet.

I received the watch yesterday and sized it. Note to self, do not attempt to resize the bracelet with coffee in system. Those little links were a PITA to align.

The bracelet although old school looking is one of the most comfortable bracelets I've worn. I am so happy with this purchase.




And my only gripe:

Congratulations! I was looking at the IWC collection at the recently opened Boutique here in Vancouver. The Spitfire is an amazing piece!

Cheers,

I love the dial on that watch. I am a huge IWC fan and wear my blue dialed Mark all the time. Congrats and enjoy.
