Nothing, I mean NOTHING that IWC can do to you or your friend compares to what Kim Jong-un does to his citizens. It's an insulting, condescending comparison. Any issue having to do with IWC is a first world problem.
both by practical measures (eg. interior angels) and "emotional" measures (the amount of hand finishing). A key differentiator is that I fully believe VC sees Patek and a worthy competitor. Patek, on the other hand, looks down its nose at VC. That arrogance, to me, shines through on this caliber.
