    I do understand, that why I wrote "please don't get me wrong", I know it's not nice being told "I'm not interested in your opinion" but in this case the question is pretty specific and, through this thread has probably gone wrong, I wanted to avoid turning it into a "name your favourite IWC watch regardless of what I'm looking for".
    This is why concrete options will return votes on your specific choices [​IMG] It's fine, and I overreacted. But it's like when someone says "No offense" and then insults your mother -- starting off with "no offense" doesn't make it any less offensive.

    Just for the sake of discussion [​IMG] , I said I'm not interested in n00bish opinions, as a self declared n00b you shouldn't have felt insulted.

    Right. Be a man and choose your own watch.

    Did I vote on this? I can't remember if I voted on this. Can't recall if I voted seriously or not either.

    I don't find it that bad...


    I feel bad for the 10 and 11 markers, but I wouldn't call it ugly.

    Personally, I'm not into any of the four. Buy whichever one you like best if you must have one of them.

    This is a public forum, so you can do pretty much whatever you want ... do you understand that I won't be bound by the poll results? Shouldn't this be enough for people to understand that having nothing to say it's better to keep the trap shut?
    I mean, I post if I can give something I think it's useful, including mocking someone who seems too serious, is this your case?

    I say, I say, lighten up boy, it was a joke, you know a jape, a gag, a wisecrack. (aside) Boy sure knows his watches but 'D''U''L''L' duuuulll. [/Foghorn Leghorn]


    You've got the roles reversed about who's mocking whom and who's being too serious.

    +1

    I voted none of the above. I would personally go for 3714 in 01 or 17.
