Lol to all the pilot watch comments...
High end watch companies used to corner the market on features valued in aviation. That all changed with electronic watches as these extra functions can now be had through programming rather than mechanical features. So now high end "pilot watches" are flown mainly by desk jockeys...post #42904 of 483124/16/15 at 6:53pm
I am going to switch straps on my IWC Inge Laureus--will order a custom Camille Fournet strap. It's currently on a navy strap, and am considering creating either (1) a navy gator strap with a silver stitch or (2) a charcoal strap with matching stitch. Any thoughts on which would look better?post #42905 of 483124/16/15 at 7:16pmpost #42906 of 483124/17/15 at 6:16amCharcoal would look good with that watch (in my mind's eye), but it's all about the execution... the right shade and depth of color, etc.
I've never worked with them, but CF should be able to make up something quite nice.post #42907 of 483124/17/15 at 6:56amSo this finally happened:
Quick snap in the car, sorry about the quality.
- absolutely a top quality item
- flies under the radar, just as I want
- wears a lot smaller than 42 mm might sound and fits really well even on a new strap. Should mould really well.
Really happy about the watch, doesn't look out of place with a Friday shirt either.post #42908 of 483124/17/15 at 8:39ampost #42909 of 483124/17/15 at 9:47ampost #42910 of 483124/17/15 at 11:06ampost #42911 of 483124/17/15 at 11:22am
VERY nice @kimmo. You are truly a man of good taste.
Speaking of taste. What do you all make of this?
I'm just wondering what sort of watch buyer looking to buy a $4k+ mechanical watch would want anything to do with a Tiffany's logo.
"Hey Burt, nice timepiece. That Swiss?"
"Yeah, Chuck, sure is. I got it at Tiffany's."post #42912 of 483124/17/15 at 11:28am
I thought the marketing position was odd with those as well.
Big block numbers, bright dials and ETA-clone movements don't scream luxury jeweler to me. But hard to tell what Tiffany's is sometimes. They've got 200 dollar silver to 200k+ fine jewelry.
I will say that while I hated that watch in pictures, I hated it less in real life. Not even close to buying one but it looks better in the metal.post #42913 of 483124/17/15 at 11:31ampost #42914 of 483124/17/15 at 11:39ampost #42915 of 483124/17/15 at 12:01pm
