IWC spitfire

Had a petit prince that I liked but I liked this one even more. Smaller numerals and 1mm didn't seem like a dramatic difference but made the dial more balanced in my eyes. only downsides are the bronze has a not great scent to it and the non santoni strap, though it is more supple.

Nice, I'm patiently waiting for one to show up at my source. What does the bronze scent smell like?

Looks great !

You can order the Santoni straps from the boutique easily. Their croc straps are finished exquisitely.

Could you elaborate more on the smell of the metal ?

Just smells kinda like dirty coins, I associate it a bit withseaweed. Not horrible but it's there. Googling I guess everyone has an opinion the smell of bronze stuff. You used to be able to order santoni straps from IWC.com but they aren't there anymore, guys will have to go through my dealer.
