MF: When was your initial introduction to IWC?
AM: That was in the mid-nineties, when I decided I should wear a “serious” watch. I did not look, unlike most of my friends, at one very famous international brand. I thought that brand was very nice but I wanted something different, and I saw that IWC had something special, I was fascinated by the Da Vinci and the Titanium Chrono Porsche Design.
Finally I fell in love with the Portugueser Chrono, reference 3714, and I simply had to have one. So, in 1998, I finally took the decision. It was simply a pleasure and a smile every time I looked at its clean and elegant dial.
MF: And what today is your favorite IWC watch?
AM: My Portugieser 7-day reference 5001.
MF: A few quick questions – could you describe your ideal watch. First, sports or dress?
AM: That’s difficult; I like both. Sports, like my CFI Inge. Dress, Portugieser, of course.
