Very nice watch. On the mid year thing - my collection was completed for THIS year 4 watches ago :oops: :lol:
I've been watching your revolving door policy. Somehow, I think you could be a bad influence. :lol:

I'm still mulling this one over. The deal is a nice one, but to ease my conscience something else would have to go. And there's not really anything I want to move on at this point. So, probably, I will stick to plan A - pay off the mortgage and celebrate with a watch in the summer - without offloading something.

And anyway.... I don't need more sports watches. :D

I'm taking the 'bad influence' comment as a compliment :thumbup:

I don't understand the word 'need' - could you help me there? :oops:

A watch every six months is much more satisfying.

They are there. Check under dive watches -> borealis Seahawk. Some of the other models are out of stock but not the sea hawks.

I'm partial to many of IWC's no nonsense, Germanic designs. However, the classic Portuguese series does very little for me unfortunately, even though I can see why they are classics. The new Portuguese chronograph, rather unfortunately named Classic, is another matter. It ticks all the boxes. Only two drawbacks. High price and height (14,5 mm). The height I could live with.

This model, with the ardoise dial, is stunning. New in-house chronograph movement with 68 hours power reserve and flyback function.

tried that on once, it is friggin' awesome, heigh and everything. IWCs may be big but they do get the proportions and feel of their watches right.

Price is of course outrageous though. RRP is something like £2,000 more than a Daytona and don't even get a bracelet with the IWC.

i think they went a bit blinggy and over polished later on with some models. but this one and the colts of the same period i think are stunning and nicely sized no dinner plate option :lol:
