Three Blogs to my knowledge also picked up the watch, and that helped.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:In the first 24 hours, there were commitments for 24 watches --impressing even those in Schaffhausen too. We've gone way beyond doubling that in just over two weeks (the watch was announced on 17 December).To me this is the purest pilots' watch IWC has produced in the contemporary era --or at the very least every bit equal to the Ref. 5002, but over time with far great exclusivity.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:Hi Hebe,I'm not expert as statistical significance, sampling, standard deviations, etc.There are probably more European collectors as a group than the US collectors who have purchased the watch, but the countries are smaller. Also, if say 5 more collectors from one country signed up for the watch, the results could be different.In all events, sales are strong and to my thinking that's good, both because it is an important watch --as I mentioned before-- and because that reinforces the value of the forum to IWC.
