    Not Telling
  1. Solid end links is going to be the biggest tangible difference. Vasthorizons made some great points, mine is a late Z serial (about a 2006 production date) and has the 3186 movement (versus 3185) and it's incredibly accurate, but I honestly couldn't even tell you what the difference is. Drilled lugs are nice if you're going to be changing straps, though I find this model looks best on the bracelet so it may not be a big deal to you. If working lume is important then find a model with superluminova, you can tell because the tritium dials will say "Swiss t<25" and the luminova will say "Swiss
  2. i dislike two tone with a passion, so the ss with the black face is my pick.
  3. It's a nice looking watch. Congrats. But, I still can't get past all the text on the dial. I mean does 'ROTOR SELF-WINDING' really need to be written on an automatic watch?
  4. Hi guys, hope you're all well. Can someone please point me in the right direction for some 14060 and M info? I'm looking at several watches in the UK, but some are 4 liners, some 2, some are tritium, some say SWISS MADE. I'm trying to do a timeline, so I can ensure (as best as possible), that they're all genuine. Thanks and regards, Tony
  5. This, exactly. Sorry it happened, but this is exactly why I buy my watches new (unless I'm looking for vintage, and even then a trusted AD isn't a bad place to look). Spend the extra money. 5-10% is well worth it to avoid things like this. A new Rolex comes out of the box with a ten year warranty, and they have the best service department of any watchmaker I've seen.
  6. At this point (IMO) it doesn't sound like a problem worth spending time, effort or money (shipping) on.
  7. That's a pretty looking vintage watch!
  8. No need to be in distress... It's a mechanical watch that can easily be fixed...
  9. nice pilot! looks perfect on your wrist. i'm visiting the NYC Boutique in a months time. i'm interested in the XVII as i have a pathetic wrist, anything >41mm looks and feels uncomfortable on my wrist i feel my 3714 is a delicate piece. does the XVII feel "delicate" to wear?

    My 1st IWC

    Congratulations, Rpcody, you picked really well and what a way to enter the world of IWC. A beauty indeed and as you say, extremely legible. And comfortable to boot. It did surprise me how easy the watch wears, given its size. Easier than the Portuguese Automatic, which has the same diameter, but is noticeable heavier and thicker. Yours looks very good on the Hodinkee strap as it dresses the watch ever so slightly down. Have to disagree with your view that the Portuguese is not to be worn often .... when I got mine in 2003, it never left my wrist during the first 6 months of ownership (ex
  11. You shall spend whatever is the IWC's list price minus however small/large discount you will be able to get from the AD (prob about 10-15%).
