Well, let me qualify my statement: IWC has better watches at the higher end when it comes to readily-available-but-complicated-and-expensive timepieces. Most of IWC's minute repeaters and perpetual calendars are more easily found in retailers but JLC's ultra-limited editions rival the best in watchmaking.

I do think some of what you are seeing though is IWC succumbing to the mass marketing of its watches making them more common and less refined in appearance than previously. I have one, I like it a lot, but it's not as unique to me as its predecessors would have been a decade ago.

She looked best in her Lara Croft days.

I would put both JLC and IWC right behind Patek with Blancpain and Breguet. There are a few smaller makers who equal Patek, but they are very limited production. Lange is probably the only larger manufacturer who reaches Patek's level.

Rolex is well below all of those I've listed. It only has a sports line, not fine timepieces.

i will pretty much agree with most of this. though i have seen plenty higher end complications from JLC in stores, maybe it depends of your location.

all and all though i think we are on the same page. smile.gif

not sold that lange is on par with patek. i would put VC and AP right up there too. but this has been argued before, all really a matter of opinion at that level.

rolex makes a damn fine watch btw. they bank on their name, but read up on their manufacturing, they make a quality watch. might not be complicated, but its built quite fine.

But, in the spirit of reasoned debate: I think that Prince Michael's coat is better overall than Hanks's because: it frames his chest better, it compliments and highlights his shoulders better, and it does a better job of drawing the eye up toward his face. It does a better job of presenting the masculine inverted triangle from shoulders to hips.

I have had the misfortune of seeing both Tom Hanks television (a.k.a., TV) shows and movies (a.k.a., moving pictures), and my conclusion is that he has no interest in looking masculine.

I find that hard to believe, and therefore, do not believe it.

You must be right. Those had to have been dreams I had about desert islands and WW II and 60's/70's history featuring his face.
