There should be more in the archives:http://www.iwc.com/forum/en/discussion/20750/http://www.iwc.com/forum/en/discussion/17918/2) while it was announced in 2006, not all models would have been produced at that time (would be my guess) - as this would depend on demand and production cycles (based on the little I know)

whichwatch Wrote:The movement should be fine, but in any case a new watch (even if in stock for quite a while) should come with a two year warranty from IWC.You might consider politely asking the AD if in view of the watch's age he would consider having the movement serviced at no extra charge to you. However, I would only suggest that approach if you are serious about buying the watch. If the strap shows much wear (other than "softening") you could also ask him to replace the strap or sell you a new one at a reduced price.

You might want to drop them an email to check and perhaps reserve it ? This is their email: email@example.com. The new boutique manager's name is Clement I believe, and there is also Phoebe, Eric and Nicholas to assist.On further reflection- there may also be one at the newly opened Pacific Place boutique. I only have the general email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
