Who else is getting a watch for Christmas? Think my wife got me something—something relatively inexpensive and more for the fun of it, I detect. After the 5811 last month, easy/low-key is welcome :)

Not me. I tried to see if my 7 year old had any interest, but no luck so far.

I tried asking for one, but all I got was a OEM box of mediocre quality. IT WAS A REAL BOX THO

Either my wife bought me the 5196J and is pretending someone else bought it the day she was going to go into the AD or she's getting earrings and I'm getting nothing and then floating the idea that it's all good and I'll just get a Lange 1 instead after the holidays...

Full credit to IWC for the worst release of the year. I guess they were hoping no one would notice if they dropped it right before the holidays.

IWC could have gone 3-4mm larger at least. Wrist presence is virtually 0!!

I think it looks bigger on pictures, on wrist it looks a bit more balanced. The stock strap is horrible though and would need to be replaced. The Large is too small and runs on quartz, not appealing at all.
Quartz version is much prettier. Automatic is too large and date window on automatic ruins the dial.
