Leosweeneypod Wrote:The crown/tube combination on the 5004 IS an update, from the 5002 and pretty much eliminates the possibility of heavy-handed owners cross-threading the crown when locking. The Ali has this crown/tube combination.The 5009 crown has a different reference but I can't see any difference between them and have never seen any official communication referring to the 5009 version as an 'update'.Leo
Kokoro Wrote:On a related note, I've very recently sent in both my BP 5002 and BP 5004 for complete service and I was wondering if IWC was going to upgrade at least the BP 5004 to the new improved winding mechanism which is on the BP 5009 (assuming that an upgrade is even possible). If the upgrade is possible on the BP 5004 would the upgrade also be done on the BP 5002 (losing the fish crown of course)? - Tracy
