    Ouch indeed! Too bad. The watch he is building for the fellow that wanted center-seconds, power date and date wheel, and ordered it, must be over 15,000 Euro then! :eek: Yes, I agree that the price is reasonable for a one-off. The fact that he would even produce it is great. 9,000-12,000 Euro seems logical given that even if produced in series it would cost, what, 5-6,000? I do wish he would produce the CS PR. It would be a grail watch I guess I'll have to stay happy with my custom "Photo-Shop Dornbluth Center Seconds Power Reserve" watch. I'll print it out to scale and paste it over my old Timex. :)
    By the way, some very beautiful watches posted over the last 10 pages or so.

    I agree re: the chrono.

    I wish IWC would make the 7-day, but without the date box, and with center seconds, PR and a date wheel. Blued steel hands and markers, of course.

    I don't recall what I paid and I would've liked the stitches to be slightly closer... I still like it though :)

    Good combo and nice shot. The SD is so much nicer than the Deep Sea, IMHO.

    I have the same watch, it is a beauty. The engravements on the back are gorgeous and the watch is, no pun intended, timeless!
