Thinking of this one - IWC 3236 Plastiki

Post by goaliechris » Sat Aug 18, 2018 9:17 am

All - About a year ago I sold my 3227 to my dad and I’ve been thinking of getting something like it. I’ve always liked the orange and blue on this one. Any thoughts on this particular model and how it wears? I know it’s bigger than the 3227.

I had the standard black dial (Mission Earth I think it was called) and it was huge. 3227 is as big as I would go with this case. I loved my 3227.

Agree on the 3227. This one wears all of its 46mm.

Thanks, gents. That helps - the 3227 was plenty big enough.

I just have to suck it up and get the 15400. Eventually.

It’s been on my mind for years. Heading to Maui tomorrow - vacation is always the time for a frivolous purchase. ;)

I miss my blue 15400 dearly.

I agree with everyone else. The Plastiki is a gorgeous, impeccably-made, amazingly-detailed watch. Unfortunately, it wears big even for 46 mm.
