    That Reverso is incredible. Wish I got one instead of an IWC.

    Which IWC did you get? And Cyclon, that is probably the best lineup I have seen since I have been "into" watches!

    I agree. I don't consider myself a brandwhore, but I must say, to see hit after hit...

    Strap can work. I like these previous posts.

    This watch is really quite attractive, but far, far too expensive for an IWC movement.

    I thought RL was using JLC movements?

    I think they are using a mix of different Richemont movements. At least JLC makes their own movements, but an IWC movement is a modified ETA.

    Which modified ETA movement are you talking about?

    Sorry, I read somewhere that the RL IWC movement was actually a modded ETA, but looking for it, I don't see anything about it now. So I might have been wrong and this might be an in-house IWC movement. Still $13K for an IWC movement is a bit much.

    That's around what the IWC models using their in-house movements retail for.
