That Reverso is incredible. Wish I got one instead of an IWC.

Which IWC did you get? And Cyclon, that is probably the best lineup I have seen since I have been "into" watches!

I agree. I don't consider myself a brandwhore, but I must say, to see hit after hit...

Strap can work. I like these previous posts.

This watch is really quite attractive, but far, far too expensive for an IWC movement.

I thought RL was using JLC movements?

post #9895 of 34970
I think they are using a mix of different Richemont movements. At least JLC makes their own movements, but an IWC movement is a modified ETA.

They use a few different Richemont movements.

Which modified ETA movement are you talking about?
post #9898 of 34970
Sorry, I read somewhere that the RL IWC movement was actually a modded ETA, but looking for it, I don't see anything about it now. So I might have been wrong and this might be an in-house IWC movement. Still $13K for an IWC movement is a bit much.
post #9899 of 34970
That's around what the IWC models using their in-house movements retail for.

Love the Reverso. My watchmaker had one for sale. Kinda wish I had purchased it as it was used and about 40% off retail. What held me back was the bracelet.
