Re: Damn these dont come up for sale often BLUE BPFF flinque

In the polished ti, this thing looks ridiculous, but damn, brushed is a whole different beast.

Re: IWC don't make 'em like they used to

That is the Gen2 Pilot bracelet and the one I like best...also known as 'the rows of corn' bracelet The Gen1 was a beauty also but the ends were, I think, a little finicky. Gen1 and 2 felt light on the wrist even though they were solidly made. The Gen3 bracelet was a little heavier. A pic of mine: ...

These old Pilot bracelets are so damned good. Perfect brushed finish, and the pyramid-shaped beads bring depth and texture without the bling.

Geez, that pic makes me want the black Spitfire version now, thanks a lot ;)
#sorrynotsorry :cheers:

For what it's worth, the black Spitfire came up the least in my two-week search – likely that it was produced in the lowest numbers of all the UTC variants. Happy hunting!

Re: Press Release From Fortis

Heard they switched factories at some point in 2015/16 and their quality completely went to hell, shortly before they apparently went bankrupt (heresay maybe), but neither of which are ever gonna be publicly admitted by a Swiss watch brand. Hopefully these guys figure their shit out – have a great h...

Re: IWC don't make 'em like they used to

Very nice, I get tempted by the 'standard' version every once in a while. I agonized over this vs. the Spitfire version, and ultimately wanted a newer one (hard to find the OG variants that haven't been over-polished), plus I really like the applied elements and the UTC aperture at 6:00. They did m...

Love the look and you are right they don’t really make them like that anymore and gust is a shame.

Oh shit, that's a cool one. Love how the triangle at 12:00 on both versions curves around the radial at the top of the dial.

Obviously not a diver, but thought my new Spitfire UTC was worth sharing. https://i.imgur.com/6PRa9XQl.jpg Didn't know this watch existed until two or so weeks ago, just landed today. Discontinued in 2014 I believe, luckily scored a NOS example with all stickers and paperwork. Screwdown crown, indep...

Gone in 60 seconds. Had it in my cart, but in the moment where I had a split-second thought ("I don't actually want this..."), they were gone. Thank god. Fuck hype.

I like the idea of this thread.... for the first time in a while, I have no planned next watch and am completely happy with my small rotation.

At this point, I'd be within reach with a mass sell-off for one of the usual suspects for a "one watch" collection, but they're simply too valuable to make a daily driver (Nautilus, Aquanaut, Overseas Dual Time, etc.), so I'm happier sticking with a rotation of 5 - 7 pieces that I genuinely enjoy. ...

Here are those real-world shots again. I really wanted to like this one but it’s sort of an awkward sumbitch on my 6.5” wrist. Very cool colors and shapes on it though.
