Agree with you here. I'm all for marvels of engineering, but I want some classiness when it comes to my watch.

without a doubt I agree. It's just like you said... a marvel of engineering. That's what I found so amazing. You could probably fly the space shuttle with that damn thing! tongue.gif

what are those two little hands at the bottom from the typical 4-5 o'clock and 7-8 o'clock positions?

Power reserve(s).

The Quantieme Lunaire is far and away my favorite. It is the one I could see myself wearing day in and day out. To be honest, however, I really could not see myself ever wearing a watch with so many complications. At that price point, I would probably opt for something from Dufour or Voutillainen. As beautiful as the spherotourbillon is, I really don't know how comfortable I would actually be wearing it. That is not to say that I don't respect it... and drool over it... but still.

the watch has 2 power supplies, i believe the 2 little hands you refer to are power reserve indicators for each of the power supplies.

JLC seems to be getting a good run here lately so I thought I would post a shot of my Navy Seal Incursion !! to say this watch came with a story would be an understatement biggrin.gif

It's a military design, no IWC trademark, so relax. That being said, I'd prefer an IWC, too.

It's not an IWC design.

edit: yeah, what zeppelin said.
post #10633 of 48312
I quite like the blue outlines on the hands and 2nd face.

I think the IWC big pilot is incredibly "in your face" and wouldn't buy it myself - especially for the asking price. A bit like Panerai watches...
