JL Wrote:Hi Robbie, first of all, congratulations on a great acquisition! I've had my 5001 for a year and it's my everyday watch. Along the way, I've collected innumerous dinks and dents mostly due to my own negligence. They annoyed me to no end initially, but one day, a friend asked me how I could ever identify my watch if it ever got mixed up with another of the same model. The answer was simple: there was one diminutive spot on the minute hand that had a slightly duller reflection, and there was a tiny scratch above the 11th hour marker.My point is, all IWCs being what they are, will always arrive at the owners' doorsteps in the same immaculate condition. It is exactly these imperfections that truly make your watch different from any other out there and become an extension of your own character.

Time is something invented by the Swiss to help sell more watches
