While I believe that you make some good points, I must object to the use of any ethnic or geographic stereotypes or generalizations here. Some generalizations can't be founded on empirical evidence and there is a certain moral objection to such. Please don't here.
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)

Michael Friedberg Wrote:To my thinking, the real coup that IWC could pull off would be to have an amagnetic Ingenieur AND a display back. It is possible with amagnetic materials for the escapement.The problem, like most business issues, is cost vs. benefit. To develop such a movement would cost more, which would make sense only if it would sell more or if the current approach (display backs with non-amagnetic movements) don't sell. Unfortunately, the display back models often sell better and there's no proof that the costs here would justify the return.
