    Hello everyone, just joined today. It all happened because I was looking at stats on how many Canadians live within 100 miles (160km) of the US border. Two-thirds are within 100km, 90% within 100 miles. That just confirmed what I thought I had seen earlier. Anyhow, up pops a video of our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. What caught my eye is his watch, but the video wasn't clear enough for me to get a good look at it so before posting it on a local online forum I searched there and found references to him wearing a IWC Regulateur. Which led me to the IWC website, although I didn't find a model called that name. Anyhow, I really like IWC watches ever since I tried on the Spitfire models at a boutique in Vancouver last year. Still don't own one yet but that could happen in the future. What's holding me back? Price. I own a Rolex Oyster Perpetual, it's up for sale right now, when I sell it that might be the time I buy a Spitfire, but used, or new at a discount.

    If you've recently purchased a new one from an AD, were you able to get a discount? How much of one?

    Hello and welcome to our forum.

    You will find some great Canadian collectors here ( amongst all the other great collectors of course ;) )

    The Spitfire models are indeed nice and a good starter to get into IWC.

    Please be aware that we can't discuss prices, discounts here on the forum.

    Greetings from Toronto!

    IWC Portuguese Regulateur is magnificent! There are several owners of this watch here on the Forum.
