salemyang Wrote:for those arguing large watches are part of IWC's roots, yeah, they are... when "large" was 40mm.Ultimately, human wrists are of a certain size. At one point, a watch simply doesn't look good anymore and IWC has reached and crossed that point.Of course everybody on this forum's opinions to be against mine. But outside the IWC bastion, it's a different story. People's distain for Hublot and Panerai is already rubbing off on IWC.Look at this: IWC compared to Zenith and losing (by quite a margin) although the answer (dictated by price point) is quite obvious.http://forums.watchuseek.com/f381/what-more-high-end-zenith-iwc-832049.htmlLastly, for those wearing 46mm+ watches, are you wearing the watch or is the watch wearing you?Now for everybody asking "why is this man coming in here and disturbing our wonderful, unanimous peace"? Because a forum with no discussion outside of "I love you, you love me and we all love IWC" isn't really a discussion forum.

I'm sure IWC won't yearn to lost of my business, but a company chasing fads never ends well, and although I'm the odd-one here, I'm the average in the market with the average aesthetic taste.Ultimately, when the big bling watch trend falls, IWC will still have to live down with watches like these on its history: http://www.iwc.com/en/news/new-triple-formation-for-iwcs-pilots-watch-squadron/At that point, when the IWC brand suffers, aren't the fans who suffer the most?You may think I'm trolling just because I'm saying things that's obviously not wanted to be heard. But nevertheless, ignoring it doesn't make it not exist... sure it's just my personal opinion, but (like i said before) I'm the average consumer with the average taste.
