Its also the smallest inhouse prestige watch IWC makes.My next watch probably won't be an IWC simply because they dont make any watches above the Port Auto 7-day that looks good...I mean, this is a 45mm watch (same size as many complicated IWC watches):It looks comical...Now fashion sense is obviously a matter of taste and many people here will find my sentiments against IWC disagreeable because of how invested they are with the brand. But even so, I mean, my distaste for ultra-oversized watches can't be unique here can it?
