For me (just over a year out of college), the difference between $1400 and $2200 isn't so bad (I can snag the IWC for $2K new w/o any discount from retail plus the gift card). The difference, however, between $2.5K and $4k is quite substantial, and while I could probably swing a Reverso when bonus time rolls around, I'm trying to stay level headed financially. Gotta keep the priorities in check. A Reverso is on my list of things to get, the one I have my eye on is more in the $6-7K range. In due time.

I like the IWC not because it's an IWC, but rather I have a need for an elegant yet simple round faced watch that is very versatile and will last me for years and years. I've looked at Omega, Longines, JLC, Cartier, but the IWC provides just what I'm looking for. In the long term I also would love an Omega Seamaster Automatic to cover the weekend and casual watch needs.

I decided to spend more and get a decent automatic. I really want an Omega Speedmaster but am hesitant to spend that kind of money. I'm really liking the Hamilton Officer though. Amazon seems to have a nice one that ships from Watchgems. Anyone familiar with this place? Does it look legit?

That watch would look epic on a dark brown croc.

My latest addition (I knew that as soon as I bought my Pilot Chrono, I'd taken my first step into a very dangerous and expensive disease....)

Er...my IWC is an auto. I've gone backwards I guess?

Are those numbers Gold? I can't tell from the lighting.
post #3460 of 31067
^The numerals and main hands are a rose/pink gold and the chrono hands are blued. That's a 3714-01.

I usually pair it with a grey elephant-skin strap.

I have the 3714-17. I was torn between yours and the one I got but the girlfriend ultimately decided she liked the blue markers better.
