Shit, that's a total typo on my part. It's definitely handwound. Just edited the listing.

Rolex - Mercedes (quality benchmark, the sign of wealth, conservative styling)
Breitling - BMW (shiny, sporty, young - and it is often the same persons owning both)
Omega - Volvo (well-working, strong heritage, "own" brand in the Ford concern - and every Swede has one) or Audi (refined "standard" pieces from Swatch/VAG with a sporty and technical approach)
IWC - Saab? (aviation history, technology, discrection)
Seiko - Toyota (japanese industry at its finest, excellent value, no hassle, wide range...)
JLC - Maserati (the discrete and potent alternative)
Tissot - VW (same "base" as Omega, but...yes, basic)
Glashütte - Porsche (premium German workmanship)
Sinn - Land Rover (purpose-built and rugged, the pro's choice)
Vacheron Constantin - Bentley (in class with PP/RR, but not...)
Patek Philippe - Rolls Royce (non plus ultra)
Panerai - Hummer (no need for explanation...)
Cartier - Ferrari (80's luxury icons from strong, traditional luxury brands)
Audemars Piguet - Lamborghini (yes, hip hop fame for an old premium brand...)
Blancpain - Jaguar (old and traditional, but somehow pushed around in SG/Ford. The rich, spoiled and forgotten kid)

/M

clever list.

i only have one watch that i wear. iwc mark xv pilot.

I like this particular Da Vinci, I think this one is around 35mm

No problem, it just seemed a bit odd to me...

MSRP I think is like $5800 and I've seen them on TimeZone's marketplace for around $3,000. The normal version does not have a dispay back.

What do you guys think about a IWC Mechaquartz Fliegerchronograph, ref: 3741? I have the Mark Pilot XV and love it. I'm thinking of getting this.

Most people here, myself included, prefer the automatic version of the Fliegerchronograph.

I actually do also but am apprehensive since it is a much bigger watch. Im trying to stick to under 38mm and this is perfect at 36mm.

IWC 3741 This model is discontinued I think. I first saw it in 1994 or so. It is a nice size for suit wear. When it first came out there was much discussion over it merits. Quartz timekeeping with mechanical bits for the chronograph.

This was a very well regarded model from IWC. The size is nice, the tricompax layout is nice and the mecaquartz movement is relatively rare and well made.

Bought this for ~$50 today (it's not worth anything more, but I like it):

Same watch, new picture. Pornographic, but tasteful, I think:
