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)

But the negative discussions, apparently based on less than truthful information - because of spite? - still leave a mark, so this kind of information by a professional is very welcomed.Kind regards,Paul

You come from nothing, you go back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!
regulateur Wrote:Jack - congratulations to your comment!As most of the people here will expect from me as a true fan of IWC, still having quite some nice pieces in my collection, I would like to add something Georges Kern highlighted in the interview he have to Alexander Linz: IWC is in the industry sector, hence having quite a risk when it comes to investments. So this ultimately will also lead the company to strive for cost-efficiency projects, which might turn out to the disadvantage of the quality of the watches produced. Maybe this won't be noticed by the owner immediately, but maybe in the years later, i.e. when it comes to servicing a watch. The issues I witnessed with newer IWC watches compared to the older ones don't really put me in a mood of positive expectations, however, the count will be made probably 10 years from now, when different people will run the company.
