Telecaster Wrote:Hello everyone,My name is Anders Johansson, I’m 48 years young and I live together with wife and two teenager kids in the beautiful archipelago west of Gothenburg, Sweden. This is a wonderful place to live. In the summer time I prefer to enjoy the sea by boat. Professionally I’m the managing director of a small R&D company developing nanotechnology for future use in semiconductor chips and packages. I travel quite a lot both privately and for work.I remember that I have always been interested in wristwatches, when I was about to start school in 1971 I saw an ad from Timex showing a cool one. I told my father that I wanted a Timex, he talked to the local watchmaker that stated that Timex was crap and that watches should be made in Switzerland… Later - early 80’s - an IWC was presented to my father after 25 years of employment. This was the first time I heard about the Schaffhausen brand.I have lately started to build a small collection of vintage watches from the 60’s and 70’s. Last winter I acquired my second IWC, a watch that is today definitely topping my collection, a blue sunray dialed 866. I just love it. Of course there are several other watches on my wish list; one of my most wanted is the original Aquatimer ref 812.I very much appreciate the IWC Collector’s Forum. It’s very well moderated and there is so much of knowledge shared and helpfulnessn provided. I think this platform is really distinguishing IWC from other brands - a great way of developing the brand and to create pride and value for us whether defined as customer or collectors.Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!/Anders
