Everything you said makes sense enough.  But your bottom line, I'm sure, is indeed the bottom line. biggrin.gif

Thanks.

 

With a white dial you could do almost anything.  Royal blue with thinner white stripes might be nice for the spring /  summer.

Thanks.

NATO would look great in just about any color combination. So would blue croc.

Nice morning for a cigar on the deck with a friend.

Sorry, Flake - nice 359 - had one a while ago.

Maybe this'll calm you down:

I like the way the skull is subtly bucktoothed.

Good eye. I see the price has dropped substantially on the regular models in case you're interested. (Not sure about the buck tooth look sans diamonds, though.)

The watch's value is whatever you are willing to pay for it. It is difficult to really give a 'price' to these kinds of watches, since they are not 'real.'

I would not buy it. Plus, did you see that this MONSTER is 48mm not including the crown? That will legitimately look like a dinner plate.

For a similar price, without the IWC name, you could pick up a Stowa. Aesthetically similar, except this is a 'real' wristwatch, from a company with its own heritage.

Was supposed to rain all weekend except this morning so I took advantage of a window of opportunity. No rain yet though...

I've seen that stowa in person. It's fantastic.

Spring is here! I put a NATO onto my '84 no date submariner.
