I have no problem with the Portuguese, da Vinci, the Yacht Club or the Portofino lines, but I would definitely stop making silly pilot watches with ridiculous names, and non antimagnetic Ingenieurs, and start making traditional pilot watches in which form follows function, in the tradition of the B-Uhr and the Mark 11.Forgot the Aquatimer. I have a little problem with some watches in this line - gold cases and chronographs.

NorbertS Wrote:I don't have many talents and I know my boundaries. I would create a position within IWC to make it able to offer psychological consultation for customers all over the world to learn them to deal with their obsessieve compulsive behavior and the relational problems that can sometimes occur as a result of their IWC addiction.

The UK Greg Wrote:I would love to know what Leo would want to be, as the current manager of the London service department for various brands of Richemont I am sure he has some suggestions he would love to implement but maybe it's not good politic for him to suggest them on the forum. I know he wants to tackle the odd IWC tourbie since he is qualified to do JLCs. Maybe he would want to cull some of the Richemont movements for technical reasons such as being structurally weak or flawed or because they have a battery in them! Maybe he would want to redesign the odd case as well for Richemont due to finish, servicing or quality issues that may exist. But I am sure his wish list is extensive! I did point him in the direction of a vacancy working for the Queen and dealing with the various timepieces in the Royal collection. He didn't apply as he figured a motorbike was not suitable for transporting some of them! I also figure that as the jeweller has a work room at Buckingham Palace to ensure nothing goes AWOL the same would apply to the watch and clock horologist although he has previously worked on the Queen's JLC and watches of other members of the family in a previous job.As for me I would like to be involved in the planning of new models and their target goal as a movement and their standard of finish. I would also like to know the maths of a movement so that I could understand how and why a movement works. All this aged nearly 60 makes this a steep learning curve for me! Therefore anyone involved with time warps give me a shout when its perfected!
