Late to the Green Party

The 3717 was my first mechanical watch, and started me on this irredeemable journey many moons ago.

Along the way, I lost interest in IWC, got lost in the beauty in Lange (thanks to the lovely pics by Jocke), was convinced by the logic of Grand Seiko, and became a Rolex convert.

Then the mad music started, which made this passion unbearably challenging for humbler folks.

Could not resist when I stumbled past this green beauty. A perfect size. A green of many shades. A toast to passion relit.

Congrats and thanks for sharing your passion for that one.

Very nice. IWC did a great job with its recent green dial releases.

Simply gorgeous! If I didn't have a green watch already I would get this in a heartbeat. Huge congrats!

There’s always room for one more… that’s what this green watch seems to be telling me 🤣

Me too!

Really good-looking IWC, perfect on your wrist! Enjoy.

Thanks… still discovering new things about the watch almost 1 week on - sinking ever deeper

A mesmerising dial- congratulations

"Along the way, I lost interest in IWC" - yes, it lost much of its brand equity, which now, however, it seems to be working hard to recover.

Indeed… the boutique was quite busy when I popped in

I’m still not familiar with the new lineup and movements, but the power reserve and height of the pilot chronos are baffling. Also felt odd without the valjoux wobble 🤣

Love the new TypeXX, hoping for a ceramic and dateless version! And maybe UTC for Xmas? 😛

A poetic arc poetically put.
