W8IPK Limited Edition

Post by MiniMpi »

Collected the W8IPK Limited Edition I bought in the NN sale for my girlfriend for Christmas from the sorting office today as I missed the delivery.

Stunning piece !! Very very happy with it :D
As these were a limited edition of only 30 pieces, I looked to see the serial number...........
Number 01/30 :shock: 8) 8) 8)
I was onto Wera by email about something else and said it to her, she said "Glad you like it..........and very lucky, number 1 never leaves the building !! obviously an oversight at this end"
Well pleased about this :mrgreen:
Some very quick and dire iPhone 3GS photo's of it below :

I'll post some proper photo's soon after I present it to my Girlfriend ;)

Very nice. That is Debs handwriting if Wera is looking for someone to blame. :D And if it is NN then this is the second time it has left the building. :lol:

I read though from something Kip said about these Limited Edition W8IPK's that they were never listed on the website as normal and were only ever sold through NN so I figure it never left before now ;)

Here is Kip's answer to a fellow member about the W8IPK :

I got the Ltd edition PVD Matisse for the other half. She wanted the diamond one but I am not sure I feel up to the £500 right now. Black is the new diamond :lol:

It's her 3rd CW. I have one - and name on a new Forum LTD
Arrived today and it loks lovely on the Stingray strap - descritpion said leather, but it's Stingray. Wife not home yet. It's #2 of 30 and I have asked Wera why a limited edition of 30 in PVD
The W8IPK was built as a result of some leftover dials and cases from the W8SKMK and Ladies BoB watch. Enough was left to create a limited Edition of 30 units. These were never part of the regular line and have gone straight to the clearance sale.

May I just say a total bargain in the NN sale - my pal got one for his Mrs and now I am getting grief for not doing the same on the back of these shots! Number One is a Brucie Bonus...

Sorry for the sidetrack, but Ladies' BoB watch??!

Oh yes, I have to say that the Matisse looks very nice with an IPK case.

The battery died yesterday :(
So I am thinking of sending it over to CWL to get a service on it.
I know it's a lot of money at £90 but I just want it to be right, especially as it's number 1 !!! ;)
I'll report back when it's been done and let you know how I got on.

If you just want CWL to do a battery change rather than a full quartz service, the price is more like £25. If the watch still isn't very old that may be the better option.

I thought that alright but I leaning towards the service, but it is only two years old.....I'll think about it.
Thanks Steve ;)
