Watches show the time flow, time to watch the watch show.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:To my knowledge, a case replacement is not usually available except in extreme circumstances (a lug that's broken, etc.). It is very expensive since IWC cases involve a lot of work and I would guess they'd be 10 to 30 times the cost of polishing --in steel. Also IWC has done some amazing restorations of cases without replacement.To my knowledge the case gets a new number but there is a special record in the archives of the "transfer".
Time is something invented by the Swiss to help sell more watches
