Resistance was futile
Feb 23, 2023,02:34 AM
In the face of what seemed like a barrage of posts and pictures of IWC pieces, I was no longer able to resist the charms and iconic reputation of the Big Pilot. Special thanks to IWC (our moderator) and Costa for their experiences and advice. It is a big watch, for sure, but there is a certain ease to wearing it (and reading it). I expect this will give my PAM 372 a challenge for wrist time as a cool casual weekend piece.
p.s. sorry for the poor quality pic as apparently mirror reflections don’t photograph well. A direct wrist shot made the BP look comically big on me; hence the mirror shot.

Where's my Top Gun IWC? You make me want to wear my IWC! You wear this watch well! You've got a wrist big enough to sport this beast!

I’ll admit, their various pilot watches are dangerously attractive. The same applies to the classic Portugieser, which I remember was always attractive to me since many years ago. But this BP is my first ever IWC.
Great way to enter the IWC world.

The BP is my favorite IWC watch. It’s an iconic piece with great wrist presence. Btw it fits you well. Not too large at all. Wear it in good health.
It's a great looking watch. So much IWC DNA

And it's a fantastic wrist statement that other pilot watches can't match, as far as I feel. It looks gfreat on your wrist too.

So true, it is quite the wrist statement. Admittedly, it does pique my interest in other IWCs, but I have to control myself.
Congratulations to you…

To your point, the best way to fight temptation is to yield 😄

Thank you 🙏🏽

You’re going to have to join in this BP club as well soon…that Petit Prince you were considering looked perfect on you! One of your pics was actually one of the factors that pulled me in this BP direction.
