Breguet: I still think the 7037 is the best version and one to buy.

The smaller size of the case is more in proportion to the size of the movement and there are no overlapping and missing markers, which is an instant deal breaker for me. Also, I don't understand why in the watch design world it's acceptable to have overlapping indicators which cut numerals and remov

IWC: An interesting read.

Thank you very much for your effort and time in organising and compiling this. It's greatly appreciated.

IWC: Thanks for pointing that out...

I'm aware of the reference 5000 models. However, it would be nice to have the twin main springs, ceramic components of the Pellaton winding system and other upgrades in the newer calibres.

IWC: I'm curious...

Why do you think the rail-road track doesn't work? I saw this 325 in the IWC museum. It has rail-road track markings and rectangular hour markers and at least to my eyes it looks great.

IWC: Fantasy redesign...

Just for fun, a quick and dirty Photoshop job on IWC reference 5007. What do you think? It's trash or here's my cash.

Baselworld/SIHH: Probably an unpopular opinion here but...

I think the subdail arrangement is compromised. They are too close to the centre of the dial and one another and this makes it appear more cluttered than is necessary. This seems to be a symptom of putting the small 30mm 82xxx in a 42mm case. I think the subdial arrangement on the reference 5033 is

Baselworld/SIHH: The blue dial would be my pick.

This is a good choice for those who want a smaller diameter and automatic winding. The lack of 'Automatic' printed on the dial and the lack of a date are positives in my opinion. I also like that the movement has some skeletonisation to it so that you can see the gear train instead of having a bridg

IWC: Thanks for the information and chance to ask IWC questions.

I would like to know why there is no three hander Portugieser with no date in the current collection. The discontinuation of reference 5454 is a shame because it was the last in the line of pocket watch based movements with three hands and no date, which represents the genesis of the Portugieser. Ar

Breguet: Exquisite piece.

I've been captivated by this one ever since it was introduced in 2006. If I could only have one Breguet, this would be it. Did you consider the yellow gold version before purchasing?

IWC: I had the opportunity to try this exact piece.

This piece was being auctioned by Antiquorum in Hong Kong on the 21st of April, 2018; lot 164. It is a subset of 80 pieces from a total of 500 pieces and was made for the Asian market. Its beauty has haunted me every since and, in my opinion, is one of IWC's finest.
