Great Story!!

And thank you for the new forum. Too bad I didn't know any of you back in 2011. I used to fly to Newport Beach every week for a client for about a year and a half. Well, I actually flew into LAX since there were no direct flights to Santa Ana from Philly.... 

CONGRATS, Charlie!

It has been a long journey for me to find the right one in perfect and unworn condition. But I think it’s feasible if you are patient enough. Best Thomas

Ohhh! My mistake!

 By: renerod : February 26th, 2020-09:19
I’m sorry. My confusion is due to the fact that It was presented at the SIAR, so I might have thought that it was a special edition for México. Thanks for the clarification my friend. Regards. René

My pleasure dear friend Rene! [nt]

Hi Dr No

 By: cpbmd : February 22nd, 2020-13:01
Do you know where I might be able to locate a 5002-001 ? It is the first Big Pilot. I would love to acquire one. My AD in Boston says they don’t exist in any number in the secondary market. Are there any IWC ADs that night make a market in preowned Big Pi... 

No, but I know where . . .

 By: Dr No : February 22nd, 2020-13:09
. . . you can ask for one: our Collectors Market. Post a W ant T o B uy request; if you receive an offer from an established community member, chances are you'll be able to make a fair transaction. Art

Thank you.

I will have a look.

As Art said...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : February 22nd, 2020-13:30
You can ask on the Collector's Market or go to the various pre-owned for sale sites to look for one. The original 500201 was introduced in 2003 and has not been in production sine the 5004 was introduced in 2006. ...
