Dang, that is still a substantial kop! Very nice! I bet that is a heck of a fun watch to wear on a daily basis.

And for the guys in Houston, I should be in H-town soon, maybe have a meet-up?

TC - Con-F*cking-grats!!!  The Big Pilot is a watch that got me into loving watches until I tried one on at the store only to realize my wrists can't handle the Big Boy but would have to get the smaller (though cheaper!) one.

Thanks! I'm going to try to wear it as often as I can, but it won't work with a suit, so definitely not a daily. smile.gif

And yes definitely on the meet up!

Thanks! I hear you. I have a 7.25" wrist and the Big Pilot is the max I would go. I have tried the watch once in the store for about 90 seconds and I have to admit I was a little shocked at the size when I took it out of the box today. I just didn't remember it being quite so tall in the case. I think it works tho, and Mrs. TC loved it. It's getting a lot more comfortable as the strap is beginning to curve to my wrist. Loving it!

I'm about to head out to the Rockets/Lakers game with a client who is a huge watch guy. He doesn't know about any of my recent kops so I can't decide whether to wear the new AP RO or the IWC BP. I'm leaning toward the BP because there will be many cocktails involved and this is a watch I am not scared to bang into something. smile.gif

The BP is one watch that really sparked my interest in watches.

One day. Onneeeeee day.

Oh Hai TC from the PNW.
The Big Pilot is about the only IWC I've seen out in the wild. Kind of hard to miss though.

TC, congrats brother! That's a great watch for sure.

The black croc is extremely stiff. I much prefer it on the OEM Buffalo. btw - removing the BP strap by yourself is extremely unpleasant. Take it your AD if you do decide to switch straps in the future.

That's exactly how I feel about the BP, esp. the 5004/9 - can't begin to explain why, but it's more fun to put on than almost any other watch I've ever tried. One day...
