Nah. Slightly more pronounced than other IWC bracelets (I have an older AT Chrono as well), but not unnatural looking and extremely comfortable. Best bracelets in the biz, imo.

And TC, that ROO is a beaut. What a timepiece.

BLNR at retail + sales tax is essentially equal to Daytona/ROO secondary market pricing. confused.gifmad.gif

So is the watch game these days. Pricing BNIB from AD is redonk.

The other SA in the boutique at the time was discussing an impending price hike with a couple who had bought a watch (didn't see which). I didn't catch all the details, but I distinctly heard "since there hasn't been an increase in so long" when doing the paperwork for ordering a matching watch to the one that had just been purchased.

RogerP that's a great pic of that red dial! Is the oscillating action/look as dynamic as it seems in the pic???

Thanks gents.  Keith - nothing but smiles from me so far.  It is very well finished (case, dial and movement), winds smoothly, slips under a shirt cuff easily, is quite legible and looks very smart to my eye.  The strap quality is also very good.  It is very much the change-of-pace dress watch that I wanted.

 

Frills - that watch is something, but I could not take my eyes off those boots!  The dial of mine is something of a chameleon - presenting a different look with the ambient lighting and angle of view.  It can look almost flat from low angle, but then the guilloche pattern really pops as you rotate your wrist toward the full-on view shown in the pic.  The shade of red can also shift from a deeper to a brighter red.  I'm digging it.

We paid MSRP then shipped it to my in-laws to avoid the sales tax  :hide:.  Then again we bought the first one the AD received.

Glad you're liking that chameleon-like dial.  It is something that I suspect needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.  All the hype about Patek's Nautilus 5711 and its chameleon-like blue/green/grey dial sounds like the same thing you're describing.  Enjoy!

 

Philip II from John Lobb - had to be in a suit yesterday.  But was stomping up and down the streets to make sure I didn't slip!  Counted six people landing smack on the pavement yesterday.

I think I've shipped all of my watches from out of state ADs to avoid sales tax. For me, that's just being a smart consumer biggrin.gif

I too, was told of an impending Rolex price hike. My guy at Govberg said Rolex often times doesn't give them any heads-up or warning, and the price increase is immediate! Yowza...

Better grab those BLNRs while you can. For those of you that already have, congrats since it's looking like you're already getting a return on your 'investment'

I have lived in Louisiana for around four years now. This morning is the first that I have woken up with ice on my windshield! No longer equipped with an ice scraper, I had to make due with some room temperature water, a credit card, and this icy blue beauty:

Every element of this is just amazing.
