First IWC in a while!!

Picked up the Portuguese AC from a private dealer couple of days back Love the watch but pity the dishonest dealers left a bad aftertaste. The crystal has a fine patch of scratches that I did not pick up while inspecting the watch. It only shows at certain angles if you look out for it. Nonetheless I have reached out to iwc sg for a quote on a new crystal so will update on that. But anyhow, it's my first calendar watch and will likely not be my last! Fingers crossed

The AR can be completely removed with Cape Cod polishing cloth. That might be acceptable until service is needed.

Bravo. Enjoy! [nt]

Congrats. Beautiful looking IWC .

Have you got other IWC watches?

Yes

But I had them long time ago. They were a Portuguese hand hound and an aquatimer. .. agree that it's the best dial which is hard to come by in sg for a pre-owned piece. Also for people in sg looking to buy pre-owned watches, stay away from watchcapitalsg ... 

Once you know the problem it can be fixed

Be thankful you spotted the (minor) defect

I have been in the same position as you.

Instead of spending more money and becoming worried please do this. Live with the imperfections for 3 to 6 months. You will learn to live with it and it will not affect you after that time. The watch is amazing. It’s about the movement , dial and wearabil...
