Just an IWC and no judgements from doggo.

On second thought, he is looking rather askance. Kind of like “bro seriously, you want me to be seen with you wearing that?” :-(

I've been down an IWC Pilot's rabbit hole recently. Still bummed that Foo's intriguing idea for a custom, vintage inspired Mark series never materialized. Damn you IWC! IMO this was the last of the decent Mark series watches. Standard 38mm MKXV ran from 99-mid 00's.

Part of me thinks the MKXV is pretty much perfect (and dirt cheap) but every once in a while I'll think Hodinkee's collab or IWC's Tribute to the MKXI may work. I like the 40mm size of the Tribute that came out in '17: but the faux patina and that black date wheel are horrendous.

They did a remake/tribute of the 3706 as well but f'ed it all up with the faux patina and a 43mm case.

Hodinkee collab is also an abomination with the black case but it's the right size and no date is historically correct.

Each of these models has some appeal but you'd have to take specs from each one to combine into a decent watch, IMO.
