    Nice morning for a cigar on the deck with a friend.

    Sorry, Flake - nice 359 - had one a while ago.

    Maybe this'll calm you down:

    Good eye. I see the price has dropped substantially on the regular models in case you're interested. (Not sure about the buck tooth look sans diamonds, though.)

    The watch's value is whatever you are willing to pay for it. It is difficult to really give a 'price' to these kinds of watches, since they are not 'real.'

    I would not buy it. Plus, did you see that this MONSTER is 48mm not including the crown? That will legitimately look like a dinner plate.

    For a similar price, without the IWC name, you could pick up a Stowa. Aesthetically similar, except this is a 'real' wristwatch, from a company with its own heritage.

    Was supposed to rain all weekend except this morning so I took advantage of a window of opportunity. No rain yet though...

    I've seen that stowa in person. It's fantastic.

    Except Stowa's have an obscene wait time - it'll be a while before it becomes available.

    What, like two months maybe? Not terrible. Still has kept me from ordering one though!

    I really dig the black with Roman numerals. Maybe one day.

    Also, beautiful Rolex, I dig it on the bond nato. My favorite nato strap I think!

    From what I gathered it was more along the lines of six months or so. Check out the Stowa forum on Watchuseek for more details. Part of the reason they command such good used sales value.
