When this beautiful watch arrived from a new EWC customer this week I just I had to share some pictures and a few words.
I am slightly biased as I love the IWC brand. We have had a few and I have owned a Laureus edition Spitfire myself.
Earlier this year we were lucky enough to get our hands on the Laureus limited edition Yacht Club with a striking blue dial. We now have a very happy gentleman in Sweden wearing it.
So when we were offered this as a part exchange against our lovely Breitling Bentley MK VI it was a watch that I had to have in my collection here at EWC.
It is the most gorgeous watch in it’s 18k rose gold finish which is also on the matching clasp.
It is undeniably a large watch at 45mm but ( and I am wearing it as I write this) it does not feel a big watch and the reason is that with a rubber strap you can get a really good fit on your wrist and it just becomes part of you. Within a couple of days the size just shrinks and when you put on a more traditional size watch it seems small!
The Ardoise grey dial is just pure elegance and the contrasting red chronograph hand is a joy to watch as it circulates around the dial. The movement has a flyback function allowing you to reset and restart with just one push of the button
While the front of the watch is a masterpiece on it’s own I suspect that it’s lucky new owner will regularly look at the automatic movement which beats at 28 800 vph via the glass back. It also has a very useful 68 hour power reserve.
For those sailors or swimmers amongst you you may take it down to 60m too.
I will now let the pictures do the talking but if you want something very rare, very special and with a very large saving off RRP this may be for you.
