Have seen this a couple times. Does a great job of breaking down a complex topic in an easy to understand way (for dumb guys like me).

Re: Incoming!! .. Aquatimer goodness..

I love it. Keep us updated on the durability of the rubber coating. My guess is it'll be fine.. I had the previous Galapagos and the rubber was flawless. I have a 4 year warranty on it, so if it goes south within 4 years I'll be ok.. Past that, I also have insurance on it, so insurance can pay to f...

Incoming!! .. Aquatimer goodness..

Well, I may be the only actual owner of this watch on the entire planet (outside of dealers and ambassadors).. Arrived today and IWC really nailed it. Pictures don't do this piece justice! I could have just updated my other post, but I feel this piece deserves its own thread :lol: Special thanks to ...

Re: The new IWC Galapagos editions ...

Thanks all for your input! While I'm concerned with the rubber coating, like others, I typically don't hang on to watches for 10-15 years... Also, the traditional Galapagos has been out for I believe 7-8 years now, with no adverse complaints that I can find, outside a shady poster on WUS, who disapp...

I like the new Galapagos

I think the red on the volcano version looks dull

Yeah, I kind of agree.. The regular Galapagos is just has a cool stealth look to it.

The new IWC Galapagos editions ...

Hey All, I'm considering picking up one of the new Galapagos models, but judging on Instagram and forums, it doesn't appear that anyone has actually bought one of these watches :lol: .... Seriously, I don't think I can find a single owner ... Curious what everyone's thoughts are on these? I used to ...

Re: Picked up my dream watch today

Congrats! I picked up a 5712 last year and it's by far the best watch purchasing decision I ever made. It hurts a bit handing over that much dough for a watch, but once you strap it on you quickly forget about that :mrgreen: Also, for marginally a little bit more money than the 5711, you get so much...

Re: To sell, or not to sell.. That is the question...

Thanks all for your opinions.. I decided to keep it.. I know if I sell it, I'll regret it in a month or so and it will be nearly impossible to replace with a similar example.

Re: To sell, or not to sell.. That is the question...

I went through this with my 1680. Once Rolex told me they would no longer service it (can't replace a red dial if anything happens) I became leery of wearing it. So, sold it for the price of a new sea dweller plus some and moved on. Yeah, they sell for more now, but it wasn't an investment any more...

To sell, or not to sell.. That is the question...

I'm really struggling here... I love it, but I don't wear it.. It sits in the dark, in the bank... Thinking I'd rather bring in a Fifty Fathoms or something... My struggle is because of how amazing of a set I have with this 5513 that will never be replaceable.. 1971, Serif Dial with ORIGINAL Receipt...

Re: Whatuwant YouTube channel

I'm a fan of their channel, but don't ever try sell/trade them a watch. They are the worst lowballers ever. I think they offered me like $1200 for my Fanta IWC Aquatimer.. Now they email me all the time asking if I have anything I want to sell :lol:
