IWC don't make 'em like they used to

Thinking of this one - IWC 3236 Plastiki

Re: Spring bar length difference on bracelet's and natos?

Generally the longer springbars are used on straps, where the twisting and movement of the strap can cause a springbar to compress and/or become dislodged. The longer length helps prevent that from happening by increasing the amount of pressure exerted by the spring on the tips. Shorter springbars a...

Great version of the 103 -- I owned one once and regret letting it go. One of the best reverse pandas out there.

Dad jokes

Share your corniest "dad" jokes. My kids love em. My coworkers hate em. So it's a win-win.
