1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    ITEM - almost new IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Ceramic watch, IW376601.

    Fantastic watch - I bought this watch in February 2016 from my AD in HKG, so there's still the balance of IWC's 2 year warranty remaining. The specs are further detailed below.

    It's a great watch - I wore it regularly for 3 months and have now put it aside, I'm just looking to trim my collection because I can only wear one watch for a long period of time (i.e. I don't rotate), so I'm not suited to having too many watches. Hoping to find it a better home.

    As you can expect, the watch is in fantastic as-new condition. There are very minor swirls around the bezel and clasp - they will likely come off with a good polish. Leather band etc is in as new condition (only sign of minor wear at the hole where put the clasp in), no knocks etc.

    Comes with the original manual and warranty card. Does not come with the IWC box - I have no idea where it's gone unfortunately! I'll ship it in a generic box.

    SHIPPING / PAYMENT - Price includes insured shipping to US and UK. I will pick up the PayPal tab as well (PayPal only). Happy to offer pickup in Hong Kong. Reasonable offers considered.

    RRP for this watch was USD16000. Here's your chance to pick up a great watch at a great price! Please let me know if any questions.

    P.S. I sell regularly on eBay if you want to see my track record (eBay id: htleung88).

    Additional Information

    In 1986, for the first time ever, IWC unveiled a Da Vinci in a ceramic case. The Da Vinci Chronograph Ceramic presented in 2010, combines zirconium oxide, which is extremely scratch-resistant, non-magnetic and acid-proof, with grade 5 titanium, a material that has proven its worth in aircraft manufacture, amongst other things. Apart from the striking bezel, other parts machined from titanium are the case back, the crown and the buttons. For the first time ever, the titanium is satin-finished and polished, giving the watch its luxurious appearance and smooth, silky feel. The inside of the case likewise features various innovations. In another first for IWC, the movement mounting and the seats for the operating parts are machined directly into the ceramic casing ring. The chronograph push-buttons are fitted with wear-resistant pushpins, likewise made of ceramic. Also new for IWC is the extravagant design of the dial, which has assumed an attractive, three-dimensional quality. The réhaut volant, a tonneau-shaped minute display, appears to hover above the dial, while the stopwatch hand partially glides below it. This floating chapter ring assumes the same convex shape as the sapphire glass, making the inner surface of the bezel appear flatter. The watch's overall appearance is complemented by a specially treated calfskin strap whose surface structure is reminiscent of a high-tech fabric. The flyback chronograph combines the hour and minute counters in a single totalizer.
