IWC: Visited the local Boutique to get a new strap and saw this.

Did a comparison with my Timezoner and a Big Pilot. Same case diameter, but the bezel shrinks the dial on the Timezoner. More balanced look, IMO.

IWC: A Tale of Two Big IWC Watches

My Blue Portugieser Perpetual Calendar and the Pilot's Watch Timezoner Chronograph. The PPC was my largest IWC before and I didn't think I would get a Big Pilot. The PPC was big enough. But when I saw the Timezoner, I had to give it a try - and I love it.

IWC: Interesting it is not from the Big Pilot Family

But it is a Big . . . Pilot. The interesting bezel shrinks the dial down a bit, making it appear a bit smaller. It is 46 mm in diameter like a Big Pilot. It is about 1.3 millimeter thicker (16.8 mm) than my Portuguese Perpetual Calendar (15.5 mm). So it does have “presence.”

Horological Meandering: He borrows his father’s watches already

He may get a mechanical watch before his first iPhone! I already got him a quartz watch with his favorite sports team logo. You have to teach the young ones how to tell analog time!

Rolex: I like the subdued blue dial.

Reminded me of vintage Tudor Blue Snowflake Subs. The blue is more navy in color than the Pelagius, almost grey-blue? Even the markers look more creamy than white. The size (39 mm, relatively thin) and weight with bracelet make it feel very light and easy to wear. I have the original BB 58 in black
