Dimer van Santen Wrote:1. I will have to sell two IWC's to get one back. The BP is not as versatile as the two Ingenieurs. For instance, I can't/won't swim or sport with it.
Dimer van Santen Wrote:2. It will take at least 10 years before I will give the watch, if I would get the Mark XVI's I would have to keep them in the safe.
Dimer van Santen Wrote:3. ...the longer I wear it, the more I like it. There is something about it that is magical. I can't really describe it, but it's big..
Dimer van Santen Wrote:4. I think this would be the time to get a Big Pilot. This year they will go up in price by a EUR 1.000,- and the prices will only go up.
Dimer van Santen Wrote:Or I could sell one of the Inges (probably the IW3233) and buy a Big Pilot. But then I have one watch that worth twice the amount of the Inge...

What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)

I recently bought a Mark XVI w/o the bracelet [mistake] and now want a bracelet, but for $1850.00 US, it's out of the question. Does anyone have a used or new OEM IWC bracelet for sale or do you know where I can acquire one at a discount? I am a resident in the US and would appreciate any advice or help that I can get, thanks for listening. And as for the gentleman who is debating on selling or keeping his IWC for the children, here is what happened to me. I am now 69yo and about 20 years ago, I gave my son my old Rolex DateJust as a gift with an inscription on the bracelet clasp to personalize it....he sold the watch within the year and that was heartbreaking to me....so here is my advice:... Don't project what you would like for your children, just do what you want and let them come to you for any needs or desires when they are older.
