First IWC

Post by porschefan on Sun 20 Nov 2011, 3:12 pm



So, I'm at my dealer yesterday to drop off my Hamilton X-Wind for him to put in the "for sale" case (nice pre-owned pieces), and I'm looking at new pieces, and getting the special prices on a couple different ones. So I leave to think about them. My wife and I walk around the neighborhood to do a few more errands, and we're talking about options, so we walk back to the dealer to ask about another piece (a pre-owned one I had seen on a previous visit), and I look into another case and see a couple more interesting things, one of them being this Spitfire. I try them both on, and ask what my price would be on it. He makes me an offer that I couldn't refuse; sold. They had just serviced it, as well, and it has a two year warranty. Box and papers were included. It's on a chocolate coloured alligator IWC strap.
See, I'll buy used, I'm not a snob. :P

That's a classy watch. Fit for a SNOB!!! LMAO! But really Tim, that is a gorgeous watch! I love the multi-level dial and raised arabic numerals! Damn, that's almost as hot as the tattoo'd red-head!!!! Time for another cold shower!

Also a big fan of IWC. But my pockets don't go deep enough to own one yet. Very nice choice.

IWC has got to be one of the classiest watches around.
Sweet crisp lines, classic.
