    Yea, not much by the thread's standards, but it's nice, plus the seller just serviced it. Not a bad deal for $22.


    I mean this one. I like it.

    This is my piece (well, an image of one the same as mine, as I don't have a camera handy).

    I love this watch for its simplicity. It was made to commemorate the Battle of Britain and was limited to 1000 pcs.

    This design specifically recalls the 1936 - 1944 Mark IX and was particularly meaningful to me as my Grandfather flew spitfires during the war.

    That Spitfire is da bomb! IWC should've reproduced this instead of that new Vintage Pilot they're hawking now.

    Really nice! 127?

    - 233J very different beast all together
    - the 127 is the Fiddy & the 233 has a few extra complications such as manual wind with 8 day reserve, 12 hr GMT hand, hacking system.

    New shoes arrived for my B&R - Strap from www.heroic18.com

    Man it is THICK, approx 6mm (I should have gone for 4 mm)

    I think that watch would be more at home on Flavor Flaves neck then on your wrist.

    I just can't get down with these really BIG watches.
