    True. Maybe I should have added some water purification tablets or perhaps a utility shovel.

    Alright, I'll bite. Only thing not pictured is my phone, which is responsible for the poorly focused pic.

    It's definitely not something you'd weigh versus an IWC, very different, this watch in particular. I suppose though, you could compare some JLC master models to some IWC Portuguese, maybe? I don't know, that is a bit of a stretch. I don't even know what other watches you'd be able to legitimately compare this to, maybe a Zenith ultra thin. It's a lot less to look at than it is to think about, regarding the build quality. Bad iPhone pic: [​IMG]

    Thank you for the picture, it is a very nice watch.

    In simplicity i reckon the Master Control - in all fairness - is similar to the Portofino, those are actually the two i am considering, i am starting to fear that the Portuguese is too big for my liking.

    Not as thin but it's comparable to GO Senator Sixties. If price is no object, VC Patrimony is a good alternative.

    IWC just released a new set of Portofinos, definitely worth a look. Movement-wise though, JLC got it beat since the cheapest Portofino still uses ETA (even the Portuguese uses a modified Valjoux 7750) and IWC is calling it their entry level watch. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The bottom left White dial (roman numbers) is actually the one, but with a brown-ish leather strap or the JLC - MC.

    Still, i am in no hurry so who knows, perhaps others will enter the race [​IMG]

    VC Patrimony i find to dressy, i wear a lot of different stuff and this is not as versatile (in my opinion as the so far two candidates).

    All of you guys without any guns (or Swiss Army knives) are just gonna be marks for boognish now. You're all going to be relieved of those nice watches and wallets with the quickness when he runs up on you with the quickness. Consider yourselves warned. I imagine it's going to play out like a cross between The Most Dangerous Game and 50 Cent's "Ski Mask Way" video.
