After a long hiatus being away from the forum I am very happy to announce that I have finally pulled the trigger and bought my first IWC. Ok, technically I bought an IWC pocket watch for a good friend of mine, but that does not count.
Ever since I became a fan of the brand in 2011 I knew the day would come. and I would like to share some pictures.
First of all, thanks to the amazing staff of the boutique in Amsterdam. Me and my family were travelling to the Netherlands and were received with open arms. They had the 2 watches (41 and 43 mm version) ready for me to try on and make my decision.
Still needed to practice my wristshot skills a bit, avoiding my phone to focus on the background
My watch has joined me on some nice holidays and adventures already:
On the beach in Zandvoort the day I bought it (my 8th wedding aniversary)
In Denmark with my family, looking amazing on the rubber as well
At the top of the Allalinhorn (4027m) mountaineering with my brother
Tomorrow I will visit the manufakturzentrum in Schaffhausen and get the tour! I hope to have many more great adventures with my watch and maybe even meet a few of you.
Thanks to all of you for fueling my passion for IWC, especially Mark and Andrew who helped selecting the right watches.
