Embarking on a transatlantic crossing with IWC Schaffhausen

first off a big thank you to my wonderful hosts for the evening. Andreas, Vivien, Connie, Mike from IWC, Kong from the purists and the anyone else i missed out, hats off to you for a great night. it was a fun affair and i got to meetup again with other watch fiends, i mean, friends on a nice little quiet hill smack in the middle of town :)

fyi some list prices that i remembered... top gun chrono S$11,700. Davinci SS S$11,600. portuguese SS S$18,600.

wrist shot of a couple of purists... don't ask who's wearing the rolex..

this one will set u back S$39,300 at list... the kurt klaus in SS. i somehow cant get
used to the new da vinci cases. they seem a bit odd to me somehow

Photobucket

more top guns... wonder if it will impact prices of the doppelchrono...
time will tell ;)

possibly my favorite of the reissues other than the portuguese.. the da vinci indices are really nice and the overall look of it is pretty unique and cool

portuguese in plat... bauhaus but pricey

mad grab of free watches for the night :) nothing of the sort actually
the kind folks at IWC just let us have a feel of the real deal
