 Ah, thanks for pointing those little details out.  I had to go back and check your pics! Good stuff. No beaches in Berlin to match Samui, I understand.  I also understand the "liberation techniques" of wives - mine has about the same wrist size as mine, so all my watches are subject to "liberation.'  Hahahaha! Oh man... To be fair, I have a number in my head and the seller isn't quite there yet.  As much as I love the watch it ain't gonna happen if that number isn't...
Well, this is still tempting me.
The close-up pics make it seem like a lot is going on in the dial - but I bet that's not how it comes across on the wrist. Do you take that swimming? Enjoy the beach!
 Yeah but you like a DSSD... Kidding.  I haven't seen the 5524G in the metal, and friends who've seen it say it's unmistakably well finished, etc.  I think that in the range of other timepieces (and assets!) that I could obtain for the 5524G's list price, it won't rank as high.  But - as you said - if one was gifted to me... 
 Looks good @rnguy001 - and while the comparison might be unfair, I much prefer this to the new Pilot Travel Time released by Patek. Hey, camo shorts! Warmer over there!
Congratulations in advance then and please do post pics!!!
Congratulations! How does it feel on the wrist and how do you like the blue of that dial?For the record I have a couple of friends with severalPPs, APs and Rolexes who are really, really jonesing for this specific IWC!
@mimo if THOSE sirens were in play I don't know how I can resist their song.
+1000. Fantastic customer service and great selection as well.To test my willpower I will go to Leffot tomorrow and expose myself to the 116618LB blue sunburst dial and determine whether I can resist its siren song.
On the AD / watch show topic - one of my good friends heads up the watch division at Reis-Nichols Jewelers, and is in NYC to show (and sell) a few timepieces. He's wearing his 5711 right now (blue dial, @Steel28)... And brought a little piece for me to view... (take note @mimo)... Shameless plug for anyone who wants to visit and check out the stuff - Leffot at 10 Christopher Street also has "other" things for viewing, like shoes that guys like @dddrees and @tifosi might...
