    I fully agree - IWC doesn't make anything nearly as nice as their 5-10 year old models.

    IWC's new line of pilots seem to be promising idk to much about em other than they are all supposed to grow in size alil, no more eta movement all in house, should be in AD's some time in april, & also will have a nice hike in price. I heard the basic spitfire chrono will jump to around 10stacks [​IMG]

    I was looking at the new spitfire chrono but I can't get past the hideousness that's the triple date window!!

    You can find it on TZ sale corner, Watchuseek sale section, TRF classified and eBay (be careful tho). If you have a watch maker with a Rolex part account. You can source a bezel from them.
