To realize the combination, shown in your picture, it would take much time
of developing, because the movement construction would completely change.
Because we do not plan to have this combination in our collection, it would
be a development for your individual timepiece. The price range for this
would be 9.000-12.000 Euro, including your individual dial, wich we would
need extra tools for.

Ouch indeed! Too bad.

The watch he is building for the fellow that wanted center-seconds, power date and date wheel, and ordered it, must be over 15,000 Euro then! eek.gif

Yes, I agree that the price is reasonable for a one-off. The fact that he would even produce it is great. 9,000-12,000 Euro seems logical given that even if produced in series it would cost, what, 5-6,000?

I do wish he would produce the CS PR. It would be a grail watch

I guess I'll have to stay happy with my custom "Photo-Shop Dornbluth Center Seconds Power Reserve" watch. I'll print it out to scale and paste it over my old Timex. smile.gif




By the way, some very beautiful watches posted over the last 10 pages or so.

Then again, I am not really one for chronos on dress watches.

I agree re: the chrono.

I wish IWC would make the 7-day, but without the date box, and with center seconds, PR and a date wheel. Blued steel hands and markers, of course.

That strap is beautiful, but it boggles my mind that they cost $225 at Leffot. confused.gif

I don't recall what I paid and I would've liked the stitches to be slightly closer... I still like it though smile.gif

Good combo and nice shot. The SD is so much nicer than the Deep Sea, IMHO.

I have the same watch, it is a beauty. The engravements on the back are gorgeous and the watch is, no pun intended, timeless!
