whichwatch Wrote in reply to:Padj Wrote:Dick, maybe you have already done this but I hope you can post the story of how you got this magnificent watch.Sorry I missed this post yesterday, Mike.There is a long story to how I got the Pisa. I remember posting a long, hopefully humorous version just after I flew to New York to pick it up, but I can't seem to find that post using the search function. I did, however, find this short version of the story that contains my first set of pictures after its arrival:Hiya, Dick.Hope things are moving along.After numerous failed attempts with the search engine I found the discussion you cited-fun reading. Fortuitous for you, the way someone reached out to you-and similarly fortuitous for me, the way you posted at just the right time.While I was back in time I also came across a discussion started By Michael about Jubilees and whether or not they were worth the price one needed to pay-in 2008. This was a fascinating discussion with most contributors feeling the watch was worth the going rate. Interestingly, the price has not changed much since then, and one could even get a steel Jubilee for less than $17000, right now, today. Just saying.http://www.iwc.com/forum/en/discussion/26117/?page=1
